Those of you with Covid, first, I hope you all have a speedy recovery. Second, was chest tightness one of your symptoms? I've had this tightness in the center of my chest since Sunday. It's off and on throughout the day. No cough, no fever associated with this. I'm contemplating going to urgent care but not really sure what they'd be able to for me.

Thanks Accenture 2! I really appreciate all the information. I actually got an oximeter this morning at target. They miraculously had it back in stock yesterday not too far from me. Pulse Ox is pretty steady around 98 +/-1. I actually do have an underlying condition which makes me even more nervous. If all the digestive issues were a symptom, this should be getting better and not worse as I'm on day 13. Today was the first day I left the house in 17 days so I couldn't have picked anything up recently. The only reason I would consider going to a clinic would be to possibly get an xray of my chest to make sure my lungs look ok. I've been taking emergen-c daily plus vitamin d and an elderberry/zinc lozenge. I thankfully managed to have all this on hand before things went nuts.

I’m on week 3. Started with a headache in the office that lasted a week or so, then a mild fever that broke after a few days. After the fever broke, I had chest tightness and breathing issues, and the ER docs were able to see pneumonia in both lungs, but not bad enough to be hospitalized. I was given an inhaler and a Z pack, and told only to come back if I couldn’t breath. I was only able to sleep sitting upright in a chair for the next several nights, but can now sleep on a harder surface, like the couch. Symptoms mostly went away over the weekend, came back Sunday night in force, and have mostly disappeared by today.

Sounds like an ordeal D2, glad you are better now! My symptoms tend to get worse at night as well.

Feeling ok. Actually think I feel a little better than yesterday. Glad to hear you have your sense of smell back! I have not encountered that symptom personally, but have heard quite a few people say they have experienced it.

How long was your productivity (personal routines and output, and work) hampered OP? And what’s your age range?

Am 27, had to take off work completely for 3 days, and spent 3-4 other workdays being only half productive. I’m almost back to normal but just super tired 😴

I wasn’t tested but I think I had it... it all started with a mild fever, extremely tired, couldn’t get out of bed for 3 days, had no apetite, no taste either. After day 7 I started to feel less tired, but still feverish and coughing. It lasted 2 weeks. Now I’m good, taste is also back :)

Smell and taste came back after 8-9 days for me. Had minor cold too but no other symptoms. I made sure to have hot water, ginger and honey, salt water gargling and hot green tea. I’m glad to be on other side now. Hope you feel better soon OP!

Friend tested positive with only a cough and chest tightness, scary to think there could be plenty of others with barely any symptoms!

This thread is a great example (albeit anecdotal) of why a lot of the modeling is overestimating things. There are undoubtedly LOTS of COVID cases that are not definitively diagnosed because they’re so mild, and thus generate a lasting antibody response in the patient that will tamper future outbreaks (and make this one pass more quickly than most expect).

@D8 you would do yourself a favor if you stopped attacking people who have different views and stopped pointing out autocorrect errors.

What.over the counter medicine did you take for recovery.. I think I'm on day 5 sore throat and cough..no fever.. had heaviness in my chest but not anymore.. had Tylenol and some cough drops but wondering if I should be taking any other meds

I know there has been similar discussion here recently, but how is WSGR PA Corporate's culture? I've been perusing forums and hear really conflicting accounts with some people saying that it's horrible, while others saying it's good. Also, there was talk on people leaving WSGR en masse to other firms (especially Cooly) and WSGR not being in the best place (although that was pre-covid and I guess things might have changed since then). Is it true that WSGR is/was declining?
