And this is probably why youíre not getting any direction from the doc. The minute they think they have something figured out another study dispute should t on a daily basis. So youíre better off with them telling you almost nothing rather than something that could harm you?

My wife told me today that she can't smell or taste anything. She had to write it down for me because apparently I have developed a resistance to listening to her.

what I find surprising is the number of people that are confident that they had it yet test Neg for antibodies. So did they not really have it or is the antibody test unreliable or are people getting it and not developing antibodies?

I think most people testing negative for the antibodies havenít had it. There is some margin of error in the testing but Iíd assume overall itís probably 98%+ accurate.

Early on, the antibody tests did not have a very high specificity. This meant there were a lot of false positives due to previous infections with other coronaviruses, not SARS-CoV-2. As for false negatives, some of the earlier tests were too insensitive and only those people that were REALLY sick (severe cases) had enough antibodies to give a positive test result. Those with a more mild case did not have enough antibodies to read positive.

I think there are many different types of COVID virus
Maybe they had a COVID but not Covid-19
Or a early un mutant version?

True statement. I watched part of an interview with a doc from University of Minnesota and he said one of the biggest problems is they just don't know much about it.

Hope you and family get feeling better soon !

We think we had it back in early March. I was in Chicago and New York the week before. Testing was not available at that time to non healthcare workers or those not needing hospitalization. My wife has an antigen test scheduled next week.
We don’t know our blood types. We’re both 40. She’s in good shape, works out, I could lose 30 pounds and have mild asthma. I had a much harder time and had 3-4 days that made me nervous. Felt like a ratchet strap around my chest. About a week of that time I was devoid of energy and short of breath. Felt better for a day or two, then it started up again.
Took 3 plus weeks to get energy back and begin feeling better and probably 5-6 weeks to get energy levels back. Huge doses of vitamin C, zinc, seemed to help during the worst days. I had ibuterol inhaler/nebulizer on hand. It helped with immediate breathing problems, but I stayed sick.
It’s no joke, and I wish I had some good advice. Kids all seems like they had coughs and colds a few days after our worst days. Thankful for friends who dropped off groceries when we were isolated.

With stories coming out you can catch it again I'm not sure antibody testing has any value.

I had to test for covid and it was negative. Been getting pressure to antibody test but just cant find the want to go do it

Bunch of us at work got it right before it came out. I’m pretty sure we had it by the symptoms as they are described. It hit me for a couple of days with fever then a week of a dry cough it wasn’t too bad. Others were laid up and thought they were gonna die. I guess every one is different. Those that went to the doc all got different diagnosis anything from the flu to bronchitis.

One good friend of ours is in Austin. She lost her sense of taste and smell. First test was negative, and just received her 2nd test today which was positive. They just told her to quarantine and that was it. Our other friend just lost her sense of taste today and probably the same route. They just tell them all to rest and that is about it. Good luck and hopefully all ends well.

For you guys wanting to get tested fast. Go to the Walgreens site and look for a testing site near you. I've put several up in Texas and they use the Abbott test that give you the results in a few minutes. It's self administered as Matt said.

Hope everyone is does great. I'm just returned from Vegas and the plane was full of dumbash people not wearing mask. Keeping my fingers crossed I don't get infected.

I know one person that has had it. He is 40ish, moderately decent shape.....it was like having the flu for him. What is crazy is that his wife nor his two young daughters contracted it. He said the worst thing was being away from his family for 15 days and not getting to see them. For being so contagious, it is weird how this could happen. It doesnt seem to follow the rules, or at least those we have been warned about.

Me, wife, daughter and son all got it. I had next to no symptoms. Dry cough, mild sore throat, and a headache 1 day. Wife and daughter lost sense of smell and taste. Wife ran fever for 4 days. They all felt pretty bad for a few days but nothing serious. I ran the chainsaw and cut out roads, cut grass and anything else I could find to keep me busy. With the mild symptoms I had, I would have never gotten tested. But with everyone else in my house tested positive, I got the test

My daughter had it in March. Doc gave her hydroxycholorquine and z-pac, and her fever was gone in 24 hours. She felt normal 2 days later. I don't know if you can get a prescription for HCQ anymore, as it's been so politicized. But it worked for everybody that used it. If you can get an Rx for it, that would be good. Add zinc, as everybody has already said. I guess the tonic water might be next best thing if you can't get HCQ anymore. Would be worth a shot.

From everything I read, zinc is actually what stops the cytokine storm that CV causes. HCQ just helps get the zinc through the cell walls more efficiently so that it can stop the virus from replicating itself inside your body's cells.

Hope y'all get better soon, Matt!

First off and most important, I hope all who have covid get through it OK, you are in my prayers and sorry for your suffering. Reading through this post has helped me learn some useful covid information, thanks to those who posted the info. I am surprised to read so many have or believe they have covid, seems like covid is really picking up speed how fast it is spreading in Texas. A shout out of thanks to Budman68, I went to the Walgreens site and learned quite a bit about covid I did not know. Most important, I learned how/where to get me, family, friends quickly tested in a close location.

Covid has picked up some but testing availability has picked up far more which is the main factor in increased cases in my belief.

Do the rapid test if you can. Iíve got BCBS insurance. It cost me $50.
When it comes to diagnostic testing, these type of tests can be problematic.

If youíre running a test on blood (whole blood, serum, or plasma) itís easy to tell if you have an adequate sample to run the test on. This is what they use for the antibody tests that show whether you were exposed in the past. It usually takes 2-3 weeks for a positive antibody test to develop.

Tests that use nasal swabs do not generally tell you if your sample was adequate (quality of the sample). They only show positive or negative.

So, a rapid test where they barely stick the swab in your nose may not collect enough tissue (mucous, nasal secretions) to show a positive. It may be quick and easy but it might also yield a false negative result. Not much different than sampling the air.

Docs seem to just want you in a black hole. No help. Just say go to ER if it gets bad. Bunch of bull****. Whole body hurts. Chest pains. My wife seems to be worse off than I am. If you had it, what helped?
My wife is a nurse and about 4 weeks a small town doctor thought or like he wanted her to test positive because he thought she had it. Sent her home from work after they ran a complete battery of test and nothing showed up. Sent her to take a test at the hospital stuck the swab to her brain I get home and ask about it. I ask what have they found not till tomorrow why there doing those test and letting people know in 15 mins. She said he told that's not a good test. WTH are people taking them for. The next day the Lab calls and says your negative back to normal smiling and hour later he call back and over rides the Lab that knows better and says he still thinks positive he called it a negative positive just broke her heart plus I run my own business I ask what am I suppose to do she ask him that and said don't say anything to no one. I told her that's Crazy. Made her wait 2 days before taking another test and could not go out shopping or any thing like that. 40 hours later negative again. What Pizz me of why he did not get with the hospital and Lab before he called her. Bring her and tear her down in such a little time. I still Pray for every one out there every day dealing with this. Okay gotta Geaux its about time to go riot tonight. Oh forgot I have to go to work tomorrow.

An increase in testing wonít account for all of the folks that are coming into the hospitals with it now. Testing or no testing, those folks would have been sick either way. I can tell you from first hand knowledge, the hospitals are seeing a big spike in Houston.

If youíre running a test on blood (whole blood, serum, or plasma) itís easy to tell if you have an adequate sample to run the test on. This is what they use for the antibody tests that show whether you were exposed in the past. It usually takes 2-3 weeks for a positive antibody test to develop.

Tests that use nasal swabs do not generally tell you if your sample was adequate (quality of the sample). They only show positive or negative.

So, a rapid test where they barely stick the swab in your nose may not collect enough tissue (mucous, nasal secretions) to show a positive. It may be quick and easy but it might also yield a false negative result. Not much different than sampling the air.

Might want to read your policy first. Was talking with a guy on Friday, and he says that most policies have verbiage to say they are not liable for payment if death is due to a pandemic.
