    Does anyone know if the high rates of RSV, serious sinus infections and pneumonia are related to the H1N1? My family Dr. told me last fall that H1N1 causes the immune system to weaken and they are seeing all kinds of other illnesses (example: tonsilitis, ulcers etc.) that were due to H1N1. It makes me wonder if people are being misdiagnosed and really have H1N1 along with the other illnesses.
