Hi!I'm a 16 year old female.At the end of November I got a bad dose of the flu.Then, in the middle of December I got the flu again but much worse to the point that i became so weak i nearly collapsed a couple of times.On around the tenth of January,i got the chicken pox....i still have pock marks all over me.Then about a week after i got a bad cold which i manged to get rid of but last week i got another bad cold and i feel dreadful.I have had swollen glands in the sides of my neck and one behid my right ear for a couple of months now.I have the most important exams of my life in three months and i have missed a bit of school.I am never ever sick so i am finding this all very strange.I have also been feeling quite and am dealing with stress of the upcoming exams.My parents don't think i need a doctor but i do so if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you x

  • Hi, after you got the first bout of flu and then subsequent illnesses your immune system is now weakened and battling hard to make you well again. Being under stress won't help only make it worse so try and relax - try breathing exercises. Also you could have an infection and need antibiotics talk to your mum and dad again about seeing a doctor to be on the safe side. Good luck :)

  • hi i am 21 years old. I get sick alot i had lyme disease for a very long time so i get sick alot. i also went to lpn classes and i know that when u r stressed your immune system gets weeker and it is easier for you to get sick especialy being in high school there are alot of germs seriously bring hand sanitizer to school with you i even had ond that looked like mouth spray but it was germx but if ur gut is telling u that somthing is wrong then go with that and make an appointment maybe you are lacking potassium or vitamin c or calcium any way u should take vitamin c pills 500 mg 1 time a dasy and lots of fluids and rest!
