A few years ago i started walking with a friend. We would walk fast and up big hills. I gave it up for the birth of my now 2 yr old twins. Whe the twins were 1 I started up again and was doing great but then my health declined and the flu symptoms kicked in. I started just taking it easy when we walked, then I stopped doing the hills, then I stopped all together because i was worn out for the rest of the day, this was not rigorous walking.
I have had almost continuous cold or flu symptoms for the past 2 1/2 years.
If I over do it even slightly it starts out with a sore throat and then a cough or chest infection, or swollen glands.
I have had these symptoms one after the other so many times now I can't count.
My doctor has done some blood tests but no results.
he tells me I'm just run down with 4 children under 5, but i don't believe this is nothing.
he sent me to a specialist who has done further tests (wish i new what for but i think off the top of my head Lupus? Hiv? thyroid) and no results
I do get heavy periods and a heavy mucus discharge for a few days after, I don't know if this has any relevance but it is something that has only started happening in recent months.
I am fit 31yrs old I don't smoke or drink alcohol or caffeine drinks. I have a regular diet, although a low appetite I eat when I'm hungry, and i feel i eat enough.
I get tired so easily. I do have energy to get by but if I over do it i'm hit with a sore throat or such like.
I have no pain anywhere else.
