well that and type o blood seems to be immune to it
I'm type O and felt minor symptoms. I had a 100* temp for 2 days. Then it turned into a cold for 4 days and I felt beat. I never lost smell nor taste.

The weirdest feeling I felt was ALL of my skin, from head to toe, felt like it was on fire for 2 days while I had a temp. I really thought the Devil was coming out of me

The chemical smell will eventually go away, at least it finally did for me. I figured that smell was the nerves in my head that were still cooking from the Rona.

Yep, O and RH negative blood types fair the best. As both the O and and the negative factor seem to have less compatibility for the virus to latch and multiply.

AB+ and B+ have the higher risk of contagion and symptoms

+1 for sinus infection since the 4th of July. Doctor won't write a script for antibiotic I have to use the nose rinsing saline thing for a week first.

I'm blowing my nose a ton and the color is improving for a while there it was almost dark orange.

Not the Rona but many people have similar symptoms sore throat runny nose.....

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.
I worked outside everyday and still do. Vitamin D oozing out of my pores, fer fux sake!

Get well soon @Blackmagic94

Some crap going around for sure.

My 23 year old son who lives at home had a nasty cold a few weeks back. Said it was the worse cold ever, Had a fever on one of the days and was wiped out for a week. Took a negative Covid test but his employer still sent him home for a 10 quarantine shows how much they trust testing.

My wife and I avoided it ( neither have been jabbed or had Covid ) and we were very much exposed. In the same house all week as well as the same car for hours the day before he got sick. We were also sharing /Tasteing beers etc.

Long before Covid whenever someone in my house is sick I start up a cocktail of A,C,D Zinc and Echinacea and sun exposure along with what we call "Immunity broth" we make a huge batch and everyone starts pounding as much as they can. I was told years ago to cycle on and off those vitamins for better immune response than just taking them all the time.

Immunity broth recipe

Good chicken bone broth like 4 boxes or make your own if you have
Two heads of garlic chopped in half. Heads not cloves : )
one large onion quartered
two celery stocks
two carrots
handful of fresh thyme
handful of fresh rosemary
4-5 star anise ( good for fighting flu )
a good handful of fresh sliced ginger ( good for your lungs)
juice from a lemon
cayanne pepper ( to your heat tolerance )
Kosher Salt and Cracked black pepper
* feel free to add anyhting else you like.

Bring to boil and cover and let simmer for two hours, salt and pepper to taste. Strain and drink. This stuff is SO good when you are sick but I swear it also helps you keep the crap away. Maybe a combo of the vitamins and mental outlook help ?

Oh yeah and Titos on ice with two olives at night : )

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.

My doc friend said, now that no one is wearing masks, all the normal colds and sinus problems are taking off big time!

I couldn't even get into urgent care the other night. It was Packed!!!

I did an eVisit through the Kaiser app and had my meds waiting for me the next morning. Thank gawd.

And my doc friend said , now that everyone is out getting exposed to people again the colds and sinus problems are back. Said masks have zero to do with it.

its weird how some odors have changed drastically since sense of smell came back while others havent changed. theres only a couple things that throw my taste off still with toothpaste being the top one. soda is another. think it may be due to them triggering your smell while you use/comsume them.. dunno. weird ride for sure though. also my rona symptoms were pretty much like a bad bad hangover from when i used to drink.

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??
My pharmacy has home test kits sitting right there on the counter by the register🤷‍♂️😉

We all had the sinus, sore throat, and cough here at my house 3 weeks ago. Went thru pretty it in about 4 days. Little cough lingering though 4 weeks out. Not bad

So @Blackmagic94 how are you holding up? Curious how your are treating it if you don't mind me asking.
I’ve mentioned what I’m taking already.

so far I’m not getting worse which I see as turning a corner. Cough is pretty mild but I’m tired today and still short on breath if I move quickly or talk a bunch. But I’m not getting worse

It took me a solid 6-7 weeks to shake the exhausted feeling. The first 10 days I was SUPER exhausted, going to bed at like 5:30 every evening.

Test was negative, may have been a sinus infection like rivermobster said.


Since I don't recall reading it YET in this thread --- I'm hoping I'm the first to point my finger at, THE MASK wearing contributing to a rise in sinus infections.

I haven't a clue if that's true, I do know wearing one often makes my nose run, although it hasn't bothered my wife in the least. I suffer a runny nose often due to allergies, so maybe it's just a coincidence ??

I very seldom wore a mask. Only when required by a store I was going into.

Haven't worn one at all in months. My sinus infection got me two weeks ago.

I haven't a clue if there's any shred of correlation, but I was surprised that some of the RDP "Anti-Maskers" hadn't already leaped on the opportunity to point that out and add it to their Dangers of Mask wearing list. 😁
