Tested positive on Wednesday. Genuinely feel like death.. throbbing head and ear ache. Blood shot eye and an acute shortness of breath.. awful stomach pains and energy is totally zapped. I haven't been able to get out of bed for three days.
Strange thing is my partner has no Symptoms at all. This is such a horrible thing.

I tested positive yesterday, I only went for a test because I had a very mild cough and as i work in healthcare it wouldn't have been great to be coughing in work.
Was shocked to get a positive result, it's a really strange virus.
I had mild headaches last weekend, that I just could not get rid of, right behind my eyes but I didn't put it down to covid.
I had the first dose of the vaccine on Monday afternoon - though I felt absolutely terrible after it, chills, absolutely freezing, feet were like blocks of ice - had to go to bed with paracetamol.
no underlying conditions
So Im all over the place - however, I don't feel particularly unwell now, a bit moany and not sleeping great.
My husband seems much worse than me he's due a test on Tuesday and he's definitely going to be positive.

I got it last March. I've a kidney transplant (14 years). Heavy head cold like symptoms. Cough. Loss of taste, smell. Fatigue. Shortness of breath. Relentless high temp. Two weeks in hospital. 3 days on oxygen. Liver deterioration, pneumonia, UTI, blood ecoli infection, lost a stone in weight. Never really thought I was going to die but really wanted to. Other than that it was grand and I've made a good recovery with no lasting effects.

Thank you. From the start we were told that in most cases we would be fine if we contracted Covid, and that is absolutely true. But alot of us that got a heavy dose of it either suffered badly or died. My stay in hospital was horrific. I had one particular day where if they had told me there was nothing more they could for me I would have accepted it gladly, I felt so bad. I’ve had a couple of life changing operations and Covid was far worse. My 88 y/o mother died from Covid the day after I was admitted to hospital. To the skeptics on the ‘relaxation’ thread, she was perfectly fine before she got it. She died of it, not with it. In all honesty I probably gave it to her as I didn’t know I was positive and back then they didn’t know all the symptoms. My best friend who was 58 tested positive on the 8th of October and was dead by the 10th. His lungs bled out while he slept. His wife found him the next morning. You can imagine what that was like. And yet there’s loads of posters on the ‘relaxation’ thread that think it’s not as serious as they say, that we don’t need lockdowns and that it’s ok to infect a nation because the death rate is miniscule. Anyway, let them off with it. My family and I and anyone that knows what I’ve been through are staying home for the moment. Over and out!

My girlfriend (mid 20's) got it back around the start of November. Started as what she thought was a head cold, then she had a temperature for a night. Cough came and so did loss of taste/smell. She was tired a lot too but by day 10 she was pretty much 90% back to normal. Cough remained for a few weeks, and her taste/smell came back around the same time. I've definitely seen her way sicker.
And weirdly enough I never got it, despite us sharing a small 1 bed apartment and staying in the same bed.
Ironically the same happened to my brother, his girlfriend had it, he never got it either. Maybe our family blood is the vaccine. :pac:
