Immune System During Flares

Immune System During Flares

I developed a flair last week and at the same time got a terrible head cold and upset stomach that is still lingering. Anyone else get sick with other ailments at the same time as a flair? I'm wondering if my body is far more susceptible to other issues during a flair?

Yes, I have too! With really bad flare ups! Also, when I am sick, I don't cleanse myself as well, so I end up with some flares.

Such a Battle!

It wouldn't be surprising. When I have a flare, my lymph nodes nearby become swollen and I'm sure fighting the infection makes us more susceptible to other things because our immune systems are overworked.
