So I was reading a topic in which Melitta responded that the autoimmune attack can happen years after the virus that causes it. I have probably mentioned it before but I am starting to suspect a stomach bug I had on my 21st birthday was the nail in the coffin. It took me a while and a bit of researching to see yeah it's possible, it was quite possibly Coxsackie B . I was really fatigued and had really severe diarrhea (sorry for the tmi) and all over body aches. I basically stayed in bed for the entire time for quite a while and the only time I got up was to sit on the toilet or try to eat a little piece of toast. I didn't have a doctor at the time, I figure if I did this would of been less of a mystery as I could of had a culture or something? It went on for a while though where I really question it, like I even went back to college not being 100% better after it, like it took at least a week or so to go away and I've read that's also common with Coxsackie. Granted I am and was an adult at the time where the symptoms were also not as bad as they possibly could of been it was mostly just a digestive issue+ fatigue thing not some of the scary crap I've read can come with it.
But anyway, I suspect that's what set it off. It's 3am and I'm thinking about this for some stupid reason. Also that was the worst birthday present if that is the case.
