When do you think you were exposed?

I should add that I have a freakishly strong sense of smell & taste. It’s really weird. Normally I can smell things my family can’t or don’t notice until I mention it.

Hahaha same! I haven’t smelled my own fart in over 6 months….. it’s pretty inconvenient because when out and about I can’t realize how deadly they are so I keep letting them rip hoping the best for everyone else… lol!
Same here, it's great, especially on airplanes :p

It's definitely strange. As I said, I mostly smell fresh are all day every day. Can't smell food cooking, can't smell most bodily odors, but occasionally the exhaust from my truck or my chap stick can be nauseating. Definitely a trip, but I do miss the sweett aroma of my own dutch oven. :p

As mentioned I’m a gassy SOB so this would be a bad thing for me. There would be a trail of death behind me if I just crop dusted with no restraint

My wife was the first to get it March 16 of this year, contracted it from our nephew. There were 7 of use living together at the time and 6 out of 7 got it but it never affected me in anyway. We were part of a study with Caltech which I took part in for 30 days. She still has smell/taste issue to this day. Go figure...

I had it early in the Pandemic, Feb 2020. Day 2, 3, and 4 were the worst for me. Took about 10 days to feel 90% again.

I’m vaxxed (J&J) but took a test today. Either I have it again or this is a hell of a cold & cough. Rapid test today came back negative. I’ll do another tomorrow.
Pretty narly non covid bug going around, quite a few family members had it.

Worst part for me was severe night sweats, and crushing chest pain.. It was an unpleasant week+

To think I was just thinking about seeing if you and Greg wanted to grab lunch. :)

I had the Kung Flu just over a year ago and to this day my sense of smell is still very screwed up. For the most part I can't smell most things, especially a fart. Not just my own fart, but other people, dogs, you name it.
Every time the wife says she isn't feeling well. I give her a silent covid test... if she smells it I know she is safe, she doesn't think it's as funny as I do 🤔 🤣

Unless required to fly or play a sport or for work why get tested? Stopping the data stream would put a serious dent in all of this bullshit.
Well that’s just a ridiculous statement!

How else would I know if I had this terrifyingly deadly virus or just your normal run of the mill flu if I didn’t get tested??

Our local news outlets in Cen Cal have a constant flow of "# of cases" reports and articles every few days or so. Keeping the fear alive one "case" at a time

It’s crazy being the WuFlu that has a 99% recovery rate. I never realized the amount of weak minded individuals existed in our society while giving governors a pass who killed thousands by introducing the virus to those most susceptible, convalescent homes.

Rest. Relax. Dont get excited. Don’t be a tough guy, if you need a hospital then do it.

I got it right after Thanksgiving, I felt really tired the first day, I never take naps and I had to that day, next day I was sore had the chills and still tired, third day I was feeling better and thought it was probably just a cold but then I made some spaghetti and couldn't smell the sauce cooking, I thought that was weird so I went into the garage and pulled the gas cap on the rzr and I couldn't smell gas, I got tested the next day and found out I was positive a couple days later. I had no smell or taste for over a month but it came back.

Not near the fires but I’ve always had allergies so I’m hoping that’s all it is.
Last week I was miserable. Head all plugged up, sore throat, headache...

Turned out to be a sinus infection. Some antibiotics and decongestant fixed me right up. Im almost 100 percent today.

@Blackmagic94

Hope you get better soon. 👍

I think I am losing a little faith on these vaccines. I only got it for my elderly parents. It seems they all got problems except I have not heard or at least read about Moderna problems which is what I got. There probably is.

I think this is where your high blood pressure might be coming from, can be scary for sure. Glad you found the Ivermectin, get well soon.

I have a friend who is a long time doctor at Kaiser. What he said was...

If you get sick from it, just ride it out. But, the Second you have trouble breathing, get to the hospital Immediately.

They have the tools and experience now to get you fixed up. But not if you wait too long.

That is all. Good luck brother. 👍👍

Same.. like a dogs sense of smell, my whole life. I could literally tell you which chicks were on the rag in a theatre when I was a kid. Smoking helped with it somewhat.

I've got something. The snot machine is in triple overdrive. Feels more like a sinus infection with maybe a mild head cold.

That is super tough because the anxiety will make it 10x worse. The brain can do crazy things to your body.

Don't forget to take C and D also.
Zinc too, especially with hydroxyq.

Vitamin D (aka sunlight) is very effective in fighting any/all viruses. When covid hit they demanded everyone stay in doors.....this is why. Sunlight, Vit.-D.... is effective in fighting virous's.

400 mg daily of hydroxychloroquine and 200mg zinc here. Has worked very well since March last yr. When I requested the HQ from my rheumatologist she had no idea it was good for fighting/curing C19.

You have Lupus

It's interesting everyone is talking about the sinus infection type cold recently.

Wife and I are microchipped with Pfizer.

Two weeks ago, I had heavily clogged sinuses for three days and then got ahold of some Tylenol Severe Sinus. Wife got hit with it a couple days later on 4th of July weekend. Monday she went to the doc to get a steroid spray. She got tested for COVID too. Came back negative.

So the whole sinus cold deal must just be some other bug that's fairly contagious.

I had a mild sinus headache for about 24 hours a couple days ago. I never get headaches, and rarely get sick. I just figured it was from all the crap that was stirred up in the air, maybe the heat.
