I'm really sick

Mar 22, 2015 1:48 PM

For the last month I've had a flu like symptoms and because I have an autoimmune illness my immune system doesn't help me I've gone through two antibiotic treatments and off the counter meds too anyone have any tips to get me out of bed?

Tardis2238, I am so sorry. I know exactly what you're going through. I have asthma and a weaker immune system than most because of it. I got sick late November. Everytime I would start to get well someone would come around sick and I get sicker. I stayed that way until early February when my ENT doc gave me a steroid shot to help my immunity. I did the echinacea, extra vitamin C, extra OJ, and OTC meds, but nothing helped except with the coughs at night. I'd suggest calling your doctor and ask about a steroid Rx or injection. Of course my steroid Rx before getting the shot didn't help me. It might do pend on each individual, or maybe it took both for me to get better. I hate taking steroids all the time but I can't get well without them. Get plenty of rest if you can. Good luck & God bless you with wellness! I'm praying for you. 🙏🌼

FlappsyLady, don't the doctors give you grief about prescribing pain meds to you when you have asthma??? My pain management doctor made me go every year for a breathing test to make certain that the meds weren't effecting my breathing.
