little1337I currently have it, it's no bueno but not as bad as I though it was gonna be. Still, wouldn't recommend solely for the isolation.
SimkiwinkiSame but now a 2 weeks after I had Covid I started having some breathing problems and some heart pain.
BiffbarfCan't say for 100% of course but last jan got a fever, couldn't stay off the toilet for 2 days then a week later or so had a gnarly cough and couldn't get a real deep breath. Honestly thought I burnt my lungs breathing hard/yelling in the cold while skiing. Cough lasted like 5-6 weeks but it didn't feel like a stuffy snotty cold. Was weird. The girl I was seeing didn't get anything tho, nor did my ski buddies I ride with so who knows.
MiIfHunterYa but did u eat said girls asshole
BiffbarfGentlemen don't eat and tell
Mtuhockey33Never tested positive for it but I got sick last December with what I thought was the flu. Spent a couple days in bed, had a cough, fever, chills. Never got tested as Covid “wasn’t in the states” at that time - it was just starting to get big in China.
fast forward 6 months and I have full antibodies despite never having tested positive for Covid. I worked in landscaping all summer and came into contact with multiple people who had it/were under quarantine and didn’t get it again.
im just sitting here waiting for shit to get back to normal but it doesn’t look like that’ll happen anytime soon with all these new varients
SuspiciousFishI am almost 100% I had it back in April (No testing then). Basically it started as a cold then my chest began to hurt and one day I literally felt like I could not get enough air to live and was almost going to go to the hospital. I decided to chill and lay down for a while and it got better enough to roll with it. I was on an antibiotic at the time which I think made it worse so I stopped it. Then for basically 3 weeks it felt like I had asthma with shortness of breath and it constantly felt like someone punched me in the sternum with chest pain. Finally I coughed up a bunch of crap for a week then felt better. No real permanent effects but I noticed I am more sensitive to smoke and other irritants now. As others said just take it easy and take your time to recover, when you push yourself is when your going to get hurt.
I also mobbed down tons of fresh garlic (3 cloves crushed, set out for 5 min then swallowed with a glass of water, 3 times a day) and that helped a lot. There is a bunch of evidence that the compounds in garlic are antiviral and are effective against other know coronavirus types. I actually had times I really started to feel like shit then took my garlic and felt better within 30 min.
Here is the research for the garlic, its good stuff:
