got flu again and symptoms came back

Postby Dannyboy777 on April 4th, 2012, 11:40 pm

i have had twitching and all that fun sensory stuff you get with bfs goin on now for about 6 months.. for the last month i was having a lot of improvement sometimes it was hardly noticeable.. well i got the flu and now my symptoms have come back to almost full force.,, just wondering if anyone's symptoms get worse with the flu and how long does it take to bounce back for them? my bfs came about after some kinda flu with a migraine so my theory right now is that the flu i got now kinda aggravated it a bit.. i dunno all i know is that it sucks

hey danny, i find this too...if i have the flu or a migraine my twitching amps up and goes thru the roof...it tends to settle down within a week or so...and when i say settle down i mean i still twitch but its not thru the roof like it is when im sick....

That has happened to me, too. Keep in mind that the flu makes most things worse. In particular, the flu or other viral/bacterial infections often aggravate autoimmune disorders (BFS may be an autoimmune disorder; that's still an open question). Also, altered sleep, food habits, and electrolyte loss from sweating, vomiting, or diarrhea during a nasty flu can impair neuromuscular function.

You'll return to baseline soon enough, as Shanny63 said.
