    Sunny day yesterday and only mild symptoms....
    Yes, tea is not a foreign substance. I think I was unclear somehow. But I think dehydration is the main issue with tea...I'd also suggest no coffee, caffeinated beverages of any kind (certain sodas).

Even though it would've explained my symptoms, i was very relieved to find out that i didn't have it since the treatment involves being connected to an IV machine 3 or 4 times a week- which would seem to interfere with normal life even more than PET(!) My PET (or what i think is PET) has continued to be a problem, but on the bad days i try to focus on the positive things that i do have , like relatively good health, instead of the negatives that go along with PET-- as trite as that might sound. But if you, or anyone here, thinks that your immune system might be compromised- then by all means get tested for CVID; there's lots of info on it on the web, but a couple things i remember learning aboout it was that it is congenital (you are born with it) and people who have it usually have a lot of ear problems as young children (i had tubes 3 times, which is one reason the Dr. thought i might have it.) Good luck!

    Jason,

    Thanks so much for following up.
    I had some blood tests done by an endocrinologist, and everything checked out fine, so I don't think I've got any issues with my immune system. That IV deal does sounds horrible too!

    Cami
