Yeah, no. I have pretty bad anxiety with regular enough attacks, and life long sinus issues. I am very familiar tight chests and not being able to breathe. This was a very different sensation.

I lost my taste for 24 hours and it came back so I’m lucky that way. Eating has been one of the creature comforts that I’ve regally enjoyed while being unwell.

Technically I’m not longer contagious(although my wife who also has it is two days behind me) but I still feel a long way from being well.
So I only went back to work on Monday and have left everyday by 1PM with fatigue. Home to bed for a couple of hours sleep.

The fatigue for me is the lasting thing I have from it. Hopefully doesn’t last much longer.

On a side note (i know 11 covid victims) 8 sub 30 year old students who have had Covid. 6 had very mild symptoms. 2 days of head cold and fine. One has lost his sense of smell but is perfectly fine otherwise. One quite sick and hospitalised with heart palpitation issues but now discharged and fine. Also one 50 year old female who had fever bad flu symptoms for approx 2 weeks but is fine now not hospitalised. 2 over 70's mild symptoms. No great discomfort. Not hospitalised.
I deal with students and have been a close contact 3 times. Tested 3 times. 3 negatives

Back to work tomorrow after testing positive for Covid. Had about 2 days were it felt like a bad head cold, but the worst part for me is the lack of energy. Could be fine then all of a sudden feel like I've ran a marathon, legs feel weak and could sleep for the night.

For those who have Long Covid symptoms, there is this article on the IT

https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-...cure-1.4518896

I don't know if this treatment is the solution, but I wouldn't trust it. I think I had enough with the real virus, I wouldn't look for trouble with something else.
What is really something is that "researchers" are still investigating, just like doctors are still trying to understand. They never have an answer to questions.
I wonder how many decades it will take for them to fully understand what is going on.

The pulse oximeter is handy, I have one and it reassured me that I was fairly ok even when I felt a bit under the weather. Below 96% is not great and I'd be calling the oul' GP. Mine never went below 98% and I have pretty small lungs.
This is great advice. i was so terrified of getting it due to existing sinus and breathing problems i got all these things to spray up my nose etc. i got Phantosmia ( Phantom smells) called the doc convinced i had covid but it transpired i had probably given myself a sinus infection. i took Sinutabs for a few days and it eased considerably.

The pulse oximeter is really great for keeping an eye on your breathing if youre worried about your blood oxygen levels and gives good reassurance.

Tested positive on Monday. Felt totally fine until today, I feel like I've done the hardest workout ever. Every muscle in my body is sore. Other than that I've nothing else wrong with me yet. I don't know if my fitness and age has stood to me but I feel like so far I've gotten off lightly. My wife is alot worse. She is aching, fever, no appetite and no energy. Just hope we don't get worse.

Are ye both relatively young?
I know some fit people who have been floored but were in their 50s.
Best of luck anyway

We have both just turned 40 so not really spring chickens ha ha but relatively young I suppose. I think what may of helped me is I run 5 days a week at a good enough level but sure its all guess work. I've been taking vitamin d for 3 months too. Don't know if it helped or not though.
