I have gotten sick three times in the past four weeks. First it was liquid bowels with a high fever f(or the first 2 days(38oC)) that lasted for 5 days. Every time I ate, it would go right through me but in a yellowy-brown liquid. Then the next week I got a cold that lasted about a week with a mild fever (for the first few days (37.5oC)) and a runny nose. Then two weeks later (right now) I have another cold. It started yesterday with a horribly soar throat, especially when I swallowed, and now I have a soar throat, head ache and just an "achy" body. What could be the problem? Why am I getting sick so often? I usually get really sick about once a year with bronchitis or pneumonia and a cold once or twice a year, but this is new...could it be some underlying problem or just bad luck?

  • It could be that for some reason your immune system just isn't working well right now and you are not able to fight off illnesses well. This can be caused by a number of things, even stress. I would advise going to see an immunologist who can test your immune function.Good luck and keep us posted,E
