Hi I’m having my first cold while on a DMD and i cant shake it off. It usually cleared within three days, in theory my immunity is great at fighting bugs! Now, it seems I’m not getting better after a week and it’s in my sinuses. Do you guys have worse colds etc when on MS drugs? Does it just linger for longer or do i need my GP?
I don’t take DMDs but I and lots of other people I know have had severe colds with sinus problems. Mine started a couple of weeks before Christmas and my sinuses are still not right. My Mum who although 83 is never Ill has also had a severe chest infection and painful sinuses. I’m not saying it has nothing to do with your meds but there is a nasty virus going around.
Hope you feel better soon
Thanks Jan. Did you seeyour GP?
No I didn’t, I don’t think they can do anything much for that kind of thing. I’m not suggesting you don’t go though, there’s only you know how you feel and how Ill you are.
