persistant, frequent viral infections

I'm looking for some clues as to what might be my problem... I've been to see my GP 6 times and they're no help - they keep sending me away with "it's a viral infection - get some rest and drink plenty of fluid".

I'm getting ill every month or so with long lasting symptoms. These include: Cough, sore throat, blocked or runny nose, tiredness/fatigue, muscle aches, pain in my arms and fingers, abdominal pain, headaches, pain around and behind my eyes, sometimes chills and night sweats, tingling sensations through day and occasional dizziness.

I take immune boosters and multivitamins, exercise and am generally pretty healthy other than this. Please can anyone suggest why I continually am getting sick?
