Anyone get really thirsty? If i dont drink a crazy amount of water i start feeling week. Right now im freaking out a little bit because ive had a lot this morning and still feel fatigue/tired. Trying not to let anxiety get the best of me.
When I was peak symptoms I was drinking water like a fish. Mad dry mouth.
4 weeks later and still feel often like I can’t get enough water. Keep drinking! Get some electrolytes too
My pulse ox is in the high 90’s, but I still feel like I’m struggling to breath. I get winded so easily.
Keep an eye on that. It’s normal to get winded but if your levels drop or it gets really hard to breathe and you get chest pain it could be pneumonia which you’ll likely need to be treated for at the hospital. Wishing you a speedy and uneventful recovery.
I was diagnosed with pneumonia the same time I got tested for COVID. It really stinks!
It totally does. The pneumonia put me in the hospital for a few days but I came home yesterday and I’m doing much better than I was before I went in. Don’t hesitate to get help if you feel like you need it. I hope you get better fast.
Same. I keep checking mine to make sure but it’s like 98 which is good news. It just hurts to breathe right now.
Does anyone have a sensitivity to heat/cold? The past two days, I've been EXHAUSTED and my body hurts.
Positive on the 24th, asymptomatic aside from just loss taste and smell last night, didn’t realize how big of an impact it already has on my mental health, anyone else in the same boat/anyone recovered from taste/smell loss?
Lost taste and smell were my first symptoms and I have cried a few times about not being able to smell (my taste came back muted 2 days after I lost it). I know of people who just suddenly got it back after 2 weeks and keep hoping to be in that group
Just ended 1 full 24 hours (pretty much lost it all last night) and I definitely felt on the verge of tears.... it’s really actually quite scary?? It’s like I feel bad for feeling this way over such a mild symptom but man does it get to you mentally, hoping for us both to be in that group, at least we’re not alone!!
My first night with no smell i thought it was amusing because like. What?! I can't smell my coffee?! This is bizarre. Now almost 5 days later I'm crying because I still can't. All my other symptoms that really hit on day 2 have gotten a bit better and I'm almost feeling human. But I still can't smell. :(
Almost everyone gets it back eventually though. So that is hopeful.
I did a LOT of reading today and most people get it back within 4-6 weeks, a long time but still super relieving, fingers crossed for us!!
Day 15: remaining at 100% no smell
I have felt like i have a little sinus infection or something since saturday. no taste/smell. Do symptoms usually get worse as days go on? Really hoping not, and that it stays mild like this.
Thank you for your submission!

My dad went to the hospital 2 days ago and tested positive. He is 58 but very overweight and his o2 levels were around 88 when the paramedics picked him up. He is feeling much better now luckily. Good luck to you father!
I feel shortness of breath but no chest pain and no fever
