| | always sick - worse since viral meningitis
I had viral meningitis 2 1/2 years ago. Since then I have had frequent viruses that take me weeks to recover from. I get tonsellitis, general sore throats, chest infections, sore ears, colds, nausea, tiredness, and hot sweats. I have just spent the last 4 weeks in bed with such things. Sometimes I just get nausea and triedness for a couple of hours and then it goes away, and sometimes I get it for weeks and it is totally debilitating. I also get reflux. I used to take losec for this, but an alternative doctor I go to thinks that this is stopping me digesting my food properly. No doctors know what's wrong and I'm feeling desparate! I have no sick leave left and I have to keep putting my goals on hold. I really struggle not to collapse into a depressed heap when I get sick yet again. Does any of this sound familiar, or am I a unique case?
