    Chills and Flu Like Symptoms

    I've been feeling very cold lately. Experiencing chills and flu like symptoms throughout the day. I haven't felt like this in quite some time and am getting a little worried. I'm wondering if my meds aren't has helpful as the flares are now coming back.

    I'm going through a lot of stress right now as my husband was diagnosed 8 months ago with Multiple Myeloma, an incurable bone cancer. He is beginning the procedure for a bone marrow transplant and I seem to be getting these chills and aches and pains more frequently, several times a day.

    Does anyone else have this same problem when life gets stressful? Would love to heard from others.

    I do get the "flu" a lot. I haven't noticed whether it was around stressful times or not though. I really should keep a journal.
