i donated plasma for cmv within 30 days of recovery and at the time i thought it was worth the $1000. i had missed so much work being sick and it was seasonal and i had just been laid off for the summer. it was perfect. untill 1 month later aug i started getting all the same symptoms just not as bad. but here we are 1 yr later and i feel worse. i was just told that i have 1st and 2nd degree av heart block type 1. some times i wonder if it was a bad idea to get rid of my anti bodies? if i hadn't donated would i be in bed all day feeling like i had the flu for 1 year? would i have almost daily headaches? would i have muscel and joint pain? would i be normal and healthy?
