We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

If you have an oxygen sensor, keep an eye on your blood oxygen level (check it while resting sometime in the morning, before bed). What I was told was as long as you stay above 95%, youíre golden. If it dips below that AND you can feel yourself having trouble breathing, keep a closer eye on it and go see a doctor if it dips below 90%. Might be worth a call to your primary doc if you have one to see their direction for you.

^ above assumes youíre vaccinated. If youíre not, Iíd check into getting monoclonal antibodies treatment.

Guess I'll chime in. I got vaxxed in March.

I tested positive on Nov 22nd. Same as you it was basically a head cold for the most part but I did lose my smell but its coming back and I had a little vertigo but its gone. Not fun but nothing too terrible. Fucked up our holiday week of course.

Wife has covid now, she got monoclonal antibodies yesterday and her Dr prescribed her ivermectin (that shit is $100 now BTW) Z-pak, and Dexamethasone. She seems to be doing better than I did with it so far.

All I did was take Mucinex D. Should have called my Doc.

I'm not planning on getting another shot, I'll roll with my antibodies.

I was absolutely not going on a ventilator. I called my PCP, and he prescribed an inhaler and pills for my cough. As of today, i haven't had a fever for over 24 hours, and my cough is actually "productive", and not as violent. Things are looking up!

They would put you on a ventilator for a cough? Yeah, I don't think so...


Something surely got misunderstood there.

I had this too. Never had it before, but it felt really concerning at the time. Felt like I had to immediately lie down.

This has me just feeling exhausted all day. Really stuffy and taste is all metallic. I haven't lost taste or smell but its definitely screwed up. Oxygen levels are still normal so there is that.

Those same surgeries mandated by the government? Asking for a friend

Since doctors get paid to do surgeries and some doctors have done sketchy stuff in the past there should be just as must distrust in doctors as there is in big pharma no? the government didn't produce the vaccines , if they mandated you had to drink a beer ( or random thing people take no questions asked on a daily basis) every day would you suddenly not trust beer( or other stuff..) anymore?

Over 250K+ Americans die a year due to medical errors so I would say that people should be also skeptical of hospitals and doctors.

If a mediocre politician mandated I drink a beer a day I would immediately become skeptical of beer, and the beer they were advocating I take.

Coercion works on some people. For someone like me it will draw push back.

Great news and progress. Iím on about Day 5 of this shit since my symptoms occurred, and I actually think Iím starting to turn a slight corner. Iíve never had a fever, but Iíve had absolutely no energy and severe aches and pains. I do agree, the dry cough sucks. This morning, my aches were a lot less noticeable, and the coughing has reduced. My energy is still shitty, but that could also be because Iím old :-)

Keep fighting, Rockhawks. You have our prayers!

I'm kinda thinking the "it's milder" in regards to omicron may be a little premature. I'd guess it's more so mild because basically everyone there has immunity from either a previous infection or immunization.

So if that's the case, areas with naÔve populations will still get whacked.

I'm always curious when I hear of someone getting Covid if they are vaccinated. If you have already stated that I apologize but I don't want to go through this entire thread to find out. Are you vaxxed and if so, when did you get it? Which one?

Moderna. 1/4 and 2/4 of 2021. No booster.

If not getting the surgery can somehow kill other people, then sure.

The really frustrating part of this whole thing is that it's NOT ABOUT YOU.

It's about spreading it to other people who might die.

If everybody who CAN get the shot gets the shot, then this is the flu.

And I could get back to my life.

all politicians are idiots but what they say doesn't change the product itself and the beer a day mandate would probably be more harmful than the vaccine one and there would be less pushback.
