I don’t think I have, but I’ve been around covid patients almost every day since this began. I’ve probably caught it and didn’t know.

I assumed I did since I was primary caretaker of my father before/after he was hospitalized with COVID. I self quarantined and eventually took antibody test which was negative.

wife and I had it back in August, actually wrote down the symptoms day by day in case it got worse

Her -
Thurs/Fri - sinus pressure, headache
Sat/Sun - dry cough
Mon/Tues - chest congestion

Him -
Sat/Sun - itchy throat
Mon/Tues - chest congestion
Wed/Thurs - sinus pressure, no sense of smell

No fevers. Some body aches. Some diarrhea. The congestion turned into wheezing at its worst. O2 levels would dip below 95 occasionally but never for very long. Continued like that for another week and petered out around day 12. Resting heart rate was abnormally high for another month or so. Been on a few strenuous hikes since and felt great.

Nope.

One friend has had it. He described “brain-melting headaches”, high fever, and 4 months later still has no sense of taste or smell.

My dad is certain he and my mom had it in March. Dry cough, flu-like symptoms, started feeling better after 2 days, then got blasted with a 104 degree fever. Said he hasn’t been laid out like that from an illness in probably 30 years.

Based on what I've read and experienced, symptoms will either fade away or suddenly get worse between days 7-12 based on your pre-exisiting condition and the amount of viral load you were exposed to.

Goes without saying it's never been a better time to stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption, and get your overall health in order.
