    When I was young I had septicaemia and it apparently made my asthma really bad as I was just very ill all the time but I can't really remember that.

    Nowadays I'd have to say these migraines I had once for like 2 weeks, it was horrific.

    Don't think I have had any that serious... I had frequent reccurent ear infectections that required lots of injections etc as a child...

    My partner though got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and epilepsy, both within last 2 years. Been in DKA on ICU twice... Makes me really, really appreciate my own health... Don't think there is anything more precious in the world than being healthy...

    possibly a skin infection when I was 13 or a pionidal sinus when I was 15.

    Migraine is pretty painful too, especially the ones involving either aura or periods.
