Headache, nausea, loose stool, fever, chills, aches, low energy levels, loss of smell and taste. Didn't have any breathing problems or congestion. Vaccine gave similar symptoms for a day or two afterwards each time.

I was never tested, but I was around a group of others that all had it a few days after I was around them.

I felt draggy a couple of days, had a headache one night, lost taste and smell a couple of weeks, and my brain felt a little foggy for a weeks or so (like we imagine TT feels all the time).

I have been vaccinated. In the group, the ones who had been vaccinated that had symptoms didn’t turn into a big deal. Of the others, one died, three were in and out of the hospital for a month, and several were out of commission for a couple weeks.

Headache very minimal. Extra strength Tylenol keeping it in check, nausea not a big problem have loss of appetite . Loose stool more than normal. Low grade fever topped our at 100, last checked 98.8. Experiencing being hot for a while and then chill will set in. Not to bad but we are cuddled up in a blanket then and to get rid of it. Back and forth between long pajamas and short ones. Energy levels really low as well as blood pressure. Minimal congestion. Allergy meds took care of that, been off them for several days. J&J vaccine back in March gave no symptoms.

Now where did I get it….wife had to have a COVID test Wednesday a week ago for bilateral carpel tunnel surgery ob Monday. Test was negative so surgery went forward. She had a bit of upset stomach come Monday afternoon so the administered meds during surgery to help that. Carpel tunnel surgery was a HUGE success…so far. She has been able to sleep all night instead of a few minutes at a time. She came home without any pain, even from surgery. Her congestion and cough worsened Tuesday night but was still able to sleep. Wednesday afternoon is when I started to feel it so I’m about 3 days behind her. Finally found some over the counter rapid tests Friday afternoon and we both tested positive. She seems to have lost some smell…maybe just because of increased congestion. All in all it hasn’t been bad. Only problem is we have exposed a number of people, including hospital staff. I’m sorry for that to a point. Had they tested her again Monday an postponed surgery…..she’s been dealing with excruciating pain for months on end… she started trying to get relief since March. Pretty much totally disgusted with our medical system we now have. Her surgeon exrayed her neck and found a couple calcium deposits….he referred her to another specialist the 3rd week of July. Earliest appointment to see this doctor’s PA is October 16. Just unreal. Took 40 years but we now have Canada’s healthcare system of the 80’s but still pay out the whazoo for it.

Sorry for the spellcheck errors…just don’t feel like fixing all of them🙄

Could you expound on that neck thing a bit more?
Is her neck where the pain is coming from?
Does her head feel like it weighs 100lbs?

For years she had issues with neck pain then all of a sudden it abated. Hasn’t had issues for quite a while. It was more tension like. She also suffers with chronic gout…it’s under control now with maintenance meds. Sometimes wonder if they actually helped with inflammation in her neck. Don’t know. Doc said her neck alignment wasn’t quite right between two vertebrate. Forget which ones right now. It does seem suspicious the carpel tunnel may have stemmed from this neck issue. Started with numbness and tingling in her fingers to a point her hands and even forearm was “On fire”.

I'm pretty sure I had it early on. I was around a bunch of people that ended up with it about the same time. I never felt and pains or fever or any thing like that. I went to eat lunch one day and took a few bites and just didnt really want any more. I felt drained, like I had no energy. I started drinking fluid and pretty much slept. I ate just a few crackers, some toast, and some pickles here and there for 2 days. Then the third I felt good again. I have never been tested.

I always do the same thing when I get sick. Fluids (gatorade water mix), apple cider vinegar morning and evening, green tea, and rest (nyquil and go to bed early). I'll try to eat jalapenos in some form as soon as possible.

Go see Dr Williamson at the Fondren group in Houston.
People fly in from all over the world to have him do back and neck surgery. I had put it off so long I was having paralysis issues on my left side. My spinal cord was compressed from 10mm to 5.
He is not cut happy he will run all the appropriate test and tell you your options the rest is up to you.

Here is some of his work.

Extreme exhaustion for about 3 weeks, chest pain for 4 days, couldn’t smell anything for a month (8 months later, still can’t smell skunks, flowers, or full port-potties in Texas heat). Found out I had Covid when I had a runny nose 3 days after my vaccine in December. Entire family ended up with it, we think initial contact was 2 family members exposed to a church secretary who had the “flu” but went to work. An uncle died. My Dad went to ED twice, husband once-both received monoclonal antibodies. Another aunt and uncle roughed it out at home, rather than get separated in the hospital (no visitor policy). Mom with dementia had a mild case thank God. I was taking care of 2 households worth of sick folks, barely able to walk out to the feed shed without sucking air (100 feet). 2nd vaccine gave me a sore arm. Couldn’t tell you if I’ve gotten Covid again since then-had a sore throat a month ago-found out a week later that’s a “different” symptom with Delta.

My job had 1/2 of the staff out in front office (physician clinic) this week due to Covid positive kids or staff themselves. Husband has 2nd of 3 sales desk guys out in 3 weeks because of exposure/sick household member. School started last week.
Even if you individually don’t get super sick, that’s a 10 day vacation that can really destroy business plans (if you’re lucky enough for that to be all).

I’ve heard of several people who feel sick, but assume it’s sinus infection, allergies, or whatever, and go ahead and venture into public activities. I’m sure this contributes to the spread.

We found out Thursday half of our church congregation (it's a small church) have come down with Covid. MR. FH had a tooth pulled 10 days ago and implant placed. They gave him antibiotic as a precaution against infection. He is prone to sinus infections. Well, he got one. Or that's what we think it is. Now wondering if it is Covid. He has appointment with his primary doctor on Wednesday so rather than go into urgent care, he's waiting to see his doctor. He is not running a fever, but doesn't have much energy, does cough a bit, has congestion just like with sinus issues. He darn sure doesn't feel like going anywhere and never does if he doesn't feel well. He barely goes off the place anyhow. We are not vaccinated. Sounds like one of the ladies in the worship team wasn't feeling well and went to church anyway. Why don't people stay home when they don't feel good???? We sure do.

There was another thread on ivermectin earlier. Here's a copy of some information I posted there FH.

Here's an example of 1 million doses distributed. If it was a dangerous as MSM projects there should be bodies laying everywhere in South America.

I think eventually general practitioner Dr will begin to take covid patients instead of being afraid of it. Ivermection and HCQ are used around the world (except in the USA) and it knocks out the virus quickly and inexpensively.

Further data supporting a role of ivermectin in decreasing transmission rates can be found from South American countries where, in retrospect, large “natural experiments” seem to have occurred. For instance, beginning as early as May, various regional health ministries and governmental authorities within Peru, Brazil, and Paraguay initiated “ivermectin distribution” campaigns to their citizen populations.48 In one such example from Brazil, the cities of Itajai, Macapa, and Natal distributed massive amounts of ivermectin doses to their city's population, where in the case of Natal, 1 million doses were distributed. The distribution campaign of Itajai began in mid-July, in Natal they began on June 30th, and in Macapa, the capital city of Amapa and others nearby, they incorporated ivermectin into their treatment protocols in late May after they were particularly hard hit in April. The data in Table Table11 were obtained from the official Brazilian government site and the national press consortium and show large decreases in case counts in the 3 cities soon after distribution began compared with their neighboring cities without such campaigns.
