So who else has got it?

32
Posted 14th Mar
3 out of 4 in our house. Started 3 days ago.

All with:
Dry nose but feels like it should be a runny cold because it has that "itching"
Dry cough that actually feels like there is no purpose for the cough.
Breathing changes almost like light asthma but not as severe.
A slight fever. Not extreme & comes & goes.
A light head & light muscle aches.

We are all isolating.

Anyone else?

I’ve done a sweep stake at work to see who would be the first person to milk this self isolation just for time off and the only staff member to complain was one the ones who is off all the time for no good reasons..
Got what? Cold, flu?

I bet you have nothing and your mind is telling you have something after being brainwashed by the media.

Yup. I used to cough to cover up a fart, now it's the other way round.
3 year old son has a bad cough, has had it for weeks. He's on antibiotics. Wife has cough and cold symptoms. I have sore throat, blocked nose and body aches a little bit. None have temperature. Pretty much the same we have every other month since this little germ magnet was born 3 years ago, nothing new here.

Have it more longer then a week never left the country been cerfull since January , gf has same symptoms just few days behind


Blocked and runny nose
sore throat
breathing issues think due to blocked nose and throat
dry cough
muscle aches
fever couple of times


Although my throat and nose are recovered a bit , as soon as you start feeling better you get hit with body aches light headed week felling . Feels like it keep attacking your body till organ failure or urgent medical treatment needed or it actually kills you.


Do your own research symptoms wary they will refuse to test you so no way of knowing.

Hope you get well soon
I'm self isolating for different reasons. I have taken a unilateral decision to halt taking a a prescribed drug, Humira (adalimumab) that lowers my immune system.

2 weeks ago I emailed my specialist at hospital for advice and to date I have not received a reply. On Monday I saw my GP who said I could easily end up with pneumonia if I caught this virus. She said she would write to my specialist.

I then went to a pharmacist to buy some hand scrub and we just got talking. She looked up the half-life of Humira which is about two weeks (varies between 10 and 20 days depending on the individual patient), so most of the drug should be gone from my body within six to eight weeks. ( I don't fully understand how 10-20 days becomes 6 to 8 weeks - tried to understand this, but too mind blowing for me) A massive thank you to that woman for giving me info I desired and had failed to receive from the more obvious routes.

I won't travel on any public transport and slowly but surely the penny is dropping with my 18 year old son that the home needs to be sterile. The biggest issue is that he could contract it and not even know he had it and pass it on to me.

I can't completely self isolate for 6-8 weeks, nor do I think it is 100% necessary, but as I work from home I can give myself a fighting chance of achieving my goal of a normal immune system prior to being infected by the virus. At that stage I wouldn't be bothered whatsoever if I contracted COVID-19.

lol weekly
I’m 99.9% sure I just ha a cold
Slightly runny nose & cough
No fever, No muscle aches, No shortness of breath

but I’m supposed to be going on holiday to US on Tuesday, so don’t know if they will let me travel
Ive been self isolating since Wednesday.
Started feeling weak, headache and getting medium temp. By Thu pm just the temp and now cough. Today have a sore throat.
Had a sore throat for a few days, now had a runny nose for 2 days. I'm assuming mild cold as a runny nose apparently isn't a symptom. However a friends 4 year old son who I have had quite a bit of contact with has been ill for a few days. High temp and cough. Was taken to hospital yesterday and has got Pneumonia. However he was premature and is probably more susceptible. Was on a drip which has brought his temperature down and has now been sent home to self isolate along with his family. He's been tested for Corona and if he's got it he will be recalled back to hospital for quarantine. I'm self isolating but very concerned about my friends kid and my wife's grandad has he requires lots of help, more so recently with various health conditions etc. But I can't help him in my condition, even a cold could be a problem for him.

I think everyone is missing the biggest concerns, what happens if we follow the other places and shut pubs and restaurants, no point going to work if you can’t have a pint on the way home after a hard day trying to look busy...
Covid 19 is a new virus so I don’t think they know what the symptoms are, and there the problem people are walking about with mild symptoms and passing it on to people who develop severe symptoms(nobodys fault)...I think this is why the government isn’t testing everybody just the most severe cases...it seems to attack 2 cells vital for lung health and I think this is where it gets serious but only in small number of cases....just remember flu kills a-lot of people and use to kill more until vaccines were developed... we need to stay safe but think of other people as well

The yanks will have probably banned travellers from the UK by then.

Yours is a nice real life family example in slicing to shreds, the theory of individual/self : "Most people, 80% would suffer mild symptoms." <==== a "self" oriented advice (selfish on the needs of self)

Versus

The theory of the advice based on family and communal units: Most people, would suffer mild symptoms, except those families or groups which include "vulnerables" where they could suffer serious symptoms. <==== a "family/communal" oriented advice (unselfish on the needs of others).


For many vulnerable individuals, a worst case scenario is one that would result in their own death, or permanent damage to their lungs (degree is obviously down to self-recovery).

No, probably for the best right now anyway. Just waiting to see what options BA provide us with.

Yup. I used to cough to cover up a fart, now it's the other way round.

Hence the bog roll stockpiling
Had to go to hospital this afternoon. Partner really suffering with symptoms. Full bloods taken & ECG & results show no problem with heart or kidneys & liver. No virus test given (they are no longer testing anyone at all). They were on a drip for a while to re hydrate & now at home.

No beds left & was put in isolation. Had to sit in a chair for 6 hours.

Now we have been told to self-isolate the whole house for 14 days!
