Weak Immune System


WARNING: This might be TMI (too much info) for some, but I really need female opinions.

Does anyone else have an insanely weak immune system? I have fibro and cfs, and it seems like I ALWAYS have some kind of virus or infection. I get swimmer’s ear without ever swimming, and UTI’s/yeast infections while taking perfect care of my feminine health (gentle soap, no harsh cleaning, urinating after sex).


Yes. I have fibro. I have had 4 sinus infections this year. And right now, I have a case of warts that is spreading fast on my hands. When I went to Mayo Clinic website to find a home remedy for them, under “when to see your Dr.”, was this: “You are an adult and numerous warts begin to appear, which may indicate the immune system is malfunctioning”.


Yes. I get numerous UTI’s (I am celibate) & inevitably Yeast Infections. Every time a relative walks in my door & is sniveling, or coughing I take 1/4 of a Zinc on a full tummy. If you are Not allergic to Zinc & your PCP says yes, give it a try. I think it was the Neurologist in Iowa City who told me that people w/Fibro are Not normal healthwise, that sentence doesn’t look right. What I want to say is that even though my B12 is within “normal parameters” for “regular” people, I Still Need a B Shot every 3wks. That is what My body Needs to function “normally”. Love, Light & Peace. Maggi
