Unhappy sick again, why?

Hi everyone i am just at the end of my rope, I just had a cold, fever about a month ago, back in september, my symptoms were a bad head cold, and i had a fever kind of felt like the flu, well i had gotten over it, it took about 2 weeks! Must of been a strong virus, and then after i was sick i just felt very very tired and had no energy. Here it is beginning of November and i am sick again! I got another cold, sunday, and now again, swollen glands, runny stuff head, again! I dont know what is going on, Why do i keep getting sick like this, I have been eating very well and not doing anything to strenuous. My brother was sick and i know that is where i caught it from the second time, but I never used to get colds, is it the weather, I just dont understand this, it is really depressing, I cant stand being sick. :-(

Thyroid. Look up the symptoms of hypothyroid on the net and see if you have most of those symptoms. If you do, go have a TSH blood test to check it out.

Hi, I know sometimes when our resistance is down from an illness we are really susceptible to catching other things. They always say to take vitamins but it never fails when I start taking them I usually end up with a cold.

Gee, I thought I was the only one who was weird getting sick whenever I take vitamins. It seems to be that way for me to. What is the deal anyway? Anyone know the why of it?

Puckerup -
You might want to get checked for Mono. I had it ten years ago, and before they knew what it was, I was constantly tired with perpetual cold and laryngitis. I can't remember if they gave me antibiotics, but at least you'd know what you have and take it easy. Get alot of rest.
