I truly believe its the gym. I have a phobia about gyms now. about 3 yrs ago, I started working out with a trainer, felt great, actually the best I ever felt in my life to this day. Anyway, 8 months later ended up with malnutrition, decreased weight by 15 pounds, sinus infections, pneumonia & kidney stones. Once I had sinsus surgery & surgery for the kidney stones, I started to go back to the gym. Ended up sick again & had to have a leave of absense from work for 8 months. Tried one more time after getting better to go back to the gym & yes, got sick again. The last time I tried going, it had already occurred to me that maybe the gym was getting me sick. Now I'm just freaked to go to the gym, I'm just going to work out at home for awhile. My husband goes & never gets sick, but, he doesn't have an auto immune disease either (thank GOD).
