This may have been answered, I did not do an exhaustive search, but does anyone have any ideas why when you have a head cold or any other similar sickness symptoms flare?

Since January I've had 4 weeks of 98% or so, then I got a sinus infection and dropped to 90%. Then again after that cleared, for 3-4 weeks again at near 100% then I got a head cold from my 3 year old and again symptoms flare up and I'm back to 90%.

My guess is the body is focusing on these new invaders and the priority is on the acute illness not the chronic stuff?

On the "good" side, its the first head cold I've had since I've relapsed over a year ago, so I think that means some immune improvement. Of course, I'm always fearful this is coming back again, despite my hacking and sounding like a frog to remind me I do actually have a cold!

Anyone else have a similar experience?
