  • im so sorry mama, and sadly i know how you feel. my immune system sucks and it seems like every time i catch anything even if its just a cold it always stays around forever and almost always turns into something worse...

    what is wrong, is it like an infection or something?

    i just got home from urgent care a little bit ago and i have a raging uti and bronchitis(sp)

  • I have a really bad sinus infection dripping down my throat and making me sick to my stomach (vomiting) and light headed.

  • Go gluten free. I used to have chronic sinusitis for years. Turns out I have a gluten intolerance. Also no dairy. Skip the anitbiotics. Take garlic pills. Rinse sinuses with a saline spray. Most importantly, take a daily probiotic like Align or Sustenex. You need to replace the good bacteria that all the antibiotics killed off.
