When you all get a cold or sick does your fibro act up more?  I have a horrible chest cold and I am so achy all over and just feel like pure crap. eyes Do you all feel worse when you have a cold or something.  Or do I have the flu and the achieness is from that? confused

Yup-same here. "Normal" illnesses like colds and stomach bugs really make my fibro flare up, which just seems totally unfair to me. :-(
