I came down with what I guess is a cold -sore throat, stuffy nose and sinuses, etc. My husband had it first. Then I woke up yesterday with every inch of my body screaming with spasming muscles and arthritis on top of the viral symptoms. The thing is, this has been happening every year at the end of summer since 2003 when I came out of a surgical remission.
Does anyone else get worse in the autumn? It really stays with me through the winter and spring, with only summer being a bit better. I so thought Asacol was causing these symptoms since it cleared up somewhat when I stopped taking it back in the spring, but alas, it seems that I may have been wrong.
I think it was a Peterbilt...
