Default Covid- Sore Throat from He**

Well I thought I was going never get it. Made it all this time and never got it. Went to care now today thinking I had strep but came back as COVID. Hands down this is the worst throat pain Iíve ever experience. Just swallowing water the pain is almost unbearable. Probably some of the worst chills Iíve ever experience as well from this thing also. How long did the sore through last? Not sure what I did to deserve this but donít wish it on anyone. Thanks Guy!

I had same symptoms. Sore throat lasted about 6 days. I started feeling better after about four days but sore throat remained a few more days. Drank whiskey to get rid of it.

That was the worst part of it for me. I thought I had strep. Negative for strep, positive for Rona. 3 days of sore throat from hell and then just a nagging cough. Feel fine now minus the cough from time to time. Warm salt water gargle, throat sprays and Tylenol. NyQuil at night.

i just got over omicron a few weeks ago.. i had same symtoms.
sinuses were packed, sore throat, chills and body ache.- no fever.
took ivermectin and tons of vit. c, zinc and d3. WORST SORE THROAT EVER.
sore throat lasted about 4-5 days. i was pretty much over it in 5-6 days.
one thing that helped was one of those saline nasal flush things and lots of cough drops.

I had it a couple weeks ago. I started ivermectin immediately, along with everything else in the iMASK+ protocol. https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-c...ol-ENGLISH.pdf

I had a 99.5 degree fever for about 3-4 hours on the 2nd morning. Throat was sore the first night and 2nd day mostly. It would kinda come and go. Sometimes very sore, sometimes just minor. But it didn't last much past the 3rd day. Getting on all of the medication and vitamins, nasal spray, etc... was very effective for me. My wife got it a day after me. She did everything I did, except she only did ivermectin the first, third and fifth days. Our doc prescribed it for day 1 and 3 only. I took it daily for 5 days, then every other day for 2 more doses. It's been 2 weeks, and she still has some annoying congestion in her head. Not terrible, but just hanging on. The congestion in the back of my throat lasted for about 10 or 12 days, gradually tapering off. She's still where mine was after about a week. Phenylephrine morning and evening helped keep my congestion/drainage at bay.

She had a JNJ vax back early, and she had COVID at least once too. This was my first bout (as far as I know) and no vax for me. We're both healthy, not overweight, eat good stuff, exercise, etc. So maybe just daily ivermectin vs. every other day was the reason I had an easier time and faster recovery than she's had. Or just blind luck. I don't know. I'd say ivermectin daily for longer helped me though.

Did they test you for strep??

I had Covid again a few weeks ago and the sore throat was the absolutely almost unbearable and it would not heal. After day 8 and I had also developed a bad ear infection I went back to the doctor and the nurse told me that the biggest issue with omicron is secondary infections and not the virus
Many doctors are prescribing antibiotics when you test positive to knock out any bacterial infection you may get
You may have strep or a secondary infection
Donít wait thinking itís Covid and that itís going to get better , find some amoxicillin and it will likely be gone in two days which is what it took for me

Tested for strep and covid. Strep came back negative. Doc said everyone that has been coming in thinks itís strep also but itís covid. They didnít prescribe anything but did get some throat numbing gargle that didnít do much. Feels like my throat is closing in on itself and it feels like glass is scraping my throat when I try to swallow anything

Find some antibiotics

I kept thinking it will heal
It wouldnít
4 amoxicillin and I was good to go
I also went back to the doctor around day 5 and they told me oh itís just Covid keep doing what we told you which was basically nothing
Went to a different doctor the last time and said absolutely nothing about having Covid and they actually treated me

Once you have tested positive and the doctor knows it they will not deviate from the bs Covid protocols which is go home and die

Not sure I if we had it or not 2 weeks ago I had major ear pressure and tickles starting in throat. Cleaned ear nightly with peroxide and drank warm tea. Never got a sore throat but developed a cough that lasted for several days. My wife last Friday started having chills and temp, woke up Saturday morning with the sore throat yall explained. It just went away on yesterday. Could be Rona, could be strep who knows. She now has runny nose and slight cough

Correct River Rat, its turned into an infection regardless of being positive for Strep. Folk think Strep is the only throat infection.

Its no different that sinus, ear, infections or pneumonia being residual to another illness.

Yep
My wife got it two days before me. She did well and actually went back to work after protocol for two days and then she went way down hill
Ended up at the er two days later with double pneumonia
3 days of antibiotics and she was better

They are not treating people

My wife got sick first. Took only vitamins, mild symptoms lasted about 4 days. I started feeling bad a week later. First day I felt dizzy. Then lots of coughing and my throat hurt really bad for about 4 days. Fever for 3 days off and on. I started on ivermectin day 2. Was much sicker than I thought I would be. Definitely more than a my wife. Felt about back to normal on day 7. Days 3 and 4 sucked!

I had it a few weeks ago.

Day 1 & 2 was just sinus like congestion, but very mild.
Day 3 - 4 was severe fatigue, with mild congestion and sporadic headaches.
Day 5 - 8 was the sorest throat I have ever had in my life.

Day 7 I started on amoxicillin, and things began to improve quite a bit.

Not sure I had covid or not but back in July had the worst sore throat I've ever had.

Days 1-3 sharp pains in throat, hurt to swallow water, kept me awake at night pain
Days 4-6 got better but still scratchy

I got tested on day 4 for covid and strep but both neg.

I treated with zinc lozenges and hot toddies using whiskey that was 90+ proof and honey mixed in it. Went through a bag of halls a day.

I'm already taking zinc with the other vitamins but the zinc lozenge I would take 3 times a day. They are 15mg each so bumped my zinc from 15mg up to 60mg a day. I also bumped up my vitamin c.

I had it back in June. I just thought it was a severe sore throat like I’ve been getting since I was 18. I did a virtual Dr.’s visit and got them to prescribe amoxicillin which always kills it! No dice after two days. I went to CareNow and they gave me a steroid shot and it killed the sore throat. 8 days later and two weeks in I was still really sick. I went to the ER and they tested me for Covid and I was positive. It took me a month to shake it. Good Luck

I had the same thing. Ibuprofin worked best for me. But, it still took a couple weeks to fully flush out.

An inflamed lymph node is what caused my throat to hurt, not an irritated throat. So, gargling saltwater, antiseptic sprays, honey, etc... had not influence on it.

My husband and I came down with similar symptoms about a month ago. Went to our doctor for Covid test and we both tested positive.

The worst symptom, by far, was the strep-like sore throat that made it hurt like he** to swallow! Our doctor recommended 1000mg acetaminophen every six hours alternating with 800mg ibuprofen every six hours (alternating between the two every three hours). This helped greatly with all other symptoms and was moderately helpful with the sore throat, but enough that we could sleep at night.

After a couple of days, I began to feel better so I decided to lay off the ibuprofen/acetaminophen regimen (because I hated waking up every three hours to take the meds!). It became evident that they had been working as, four or five hours later, I began to get that dog-crap feeling again.

(PS: Are we allowed to say "crap" here?)
