i have a bunch of info on fighting infection and inflammation with diet and nutrition if anyone is interested
Only if it involves Doritos.
Seriously though, the typical cycle for me is that i get a seasonal allergy flare up which leads to a sinus infection with swollen lymph nodes and then it goes into bronchitis.
I've also wondered about this: If MS is a disease of the immune system, then wouldn't it make allergic reactions much more intense than in a non-MS'er? My neuro told me that my CSF had an increased amount of immune activity, I took that to mean that my t-cells are bad-ass and looking for a fight.
I feel like I'm groping around in the dark, trying to find something that makes sense to me, the MS theory I can believe in.
