GcMaf and colds

Hi, I started GcMaf in June. Had strong IRIS (? severe weakness and debilitation off and on) at .1cc, dropped to .05cc for a few weeks now back up to .1cc. I've had the cold from hell for six days. I almost never get colds since I fell ill in 1992ish. Last one was more than 8 years ago. I've heard there is a bad cold going around but this has floored me for 6 or 7 days.

My doc said it could be related to GcMaf getting my immune system working better, causing inflammation, stirring up the lesser pathogens -- lesser is my word -- anyway wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I haven't come close to leaving the apt since Saturday, which is rare for me. I've a moderate case of ME so I do get out but really I'm a semi-invalid.

Thanks!

How many nanograms of GcMAF are you taking?

After, chatting it does indeed sound like you caught a cold! We need a "congratulation-on-your-cold" emoticon!

With the Lyme community they find that a cold comes with getting better!
They celebrate - so is a paradox that people can celebrate feeling bloody awful :)
so congratulations
