Symptoms amplified when sick?

Postby blacknite3 » Wed Jun 11, 2014 2:02 pm

Is it normal to have the numbness and tingling seem to amplify when sick? I had a stomach bug crop up today followed by flu-like acheness. My left hand is very tingly today (more than normal). This has happened on a number of occasions when sick.

Normal, or unique to me?

i've heard of it being the case for some. there are some interconnected dynamics between what is going on when you have a cold, and markers of disease activity that change when you have a relapse. i think it's a plausible link for sure..
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
