I have been to numerous doctors, specialists etc. I have exhausted my medical aid year on year and without results. Currently, have (repeated)elevated levels of leukocytes, lymphocytes and eosonphils. Symptoms always the same, tiredness, joint pains, my head feels stuffy -almost as though I have a hangover every day. Sharp pains in the sternum and IBS symptoms (without the constipation or diarrhea). Repeat ear infections (one every two months or so), repeat sinusitis etc. etc. If someone has the flu, they just need to look at me and I get sick! Had 6 HIV tests (life insurances) and they were all negative.

I eat well, take multivitamins etc but don't seem to have any ability to stave off these infections. Its getting to the point that I am so frustrated with myself, the medical profession (disillusioned!!) and all around me that I've reached boiling point!
