BB Diet: I'd like to say I feel better, but

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I have a cold again. And interesting upshot (try to follow my logic, faulty that it might be) is this:
In brief, MS is an overactive immune system.
I used to never get colds, while the MS was otherwise savaging my body.
I take a weekly interferon shot to turn down my over active immune system.
Now that I am eating better and somewhat controlling my over active immune system, the shot leaves me wide open for whatever virus is floating by. Evidence: the last two times I did my shot I had the customary flu-like symptoms, but then a real cold,... which my body shut down quickly, but it was still there.
I'm doing my shot once every week and a half, rather than once a week. I think I'll try next to put in only half the dose.
What does my neurologist say about this? Who knows? Even though I have MS every day, I only get to see him twice a year for 15 minutes.
I'll book a visit with a naturopath soon and follow up with my GP.

    Sorry to hear that, try the Chinese version of chicken noodle soup, it's chicken ginger soup and it really helps warm up your body!
