Sick again..and again...and again.


Q: I have been getting sick an alarming amount of times. So far this year I have been sick 7 times. Last year I was sick just as much. My sicknesses range from sore throats, to fever, to stuffy and runny nose, to fatigue. Sometimes I'll be sick, feel better, and then just 2 weeks later Ill get sick again. Sometimes Im sick for 5 and even up to 14 days. I eat extremely healthy, exercise 4-5 days a week for 30-45 minutes a day. I dont smoke, I dont drink alcohol, all I do drink is about a gallon of water a day. I take a multi vitamin everyday, fish oil, Acidophilus, and sometimes extra vitamin c. What could be the cause? This has been going on for 2 years now. I used to never get sick.
