Technically… your roommate didn’t test positive for Covid yet so… you haven’t been exposed

I have no symptoms and am fully vaccinated and boosted. Roommate is partially vaccinated. I don’t know if I can handle waiting another month to see the doctor when I’m in as much pain as I am in daily. But I also want to be safe for those around me.

Friday as in 2 days? Idk if the virus will be incubated in ur system by then. My mom has super covid like symptoms and we all avoided her for 3 days but she just got neg for covid. So my hunch is to just go and double mask with a proper n95 mask

like

Yeah. I think that’s my plan. I’m not too worried about the virus for myself (obviously it’s different for people who are immunocompromised) despite the fact that I’m on medical leave I know it’s not due to anything with my immune system and of course being triple vaxxed etc. It really isn’t something that can wait for quality of life but my fear was it would be life threatening to some and that’s a bigger deal than my quality of life for a while (even though I know my quality of life is still very important)

It sounds like an urgent medical matter, you should keep your appointment. Both your roommate’s and your test could be negative due to testing too soon anyway. Just be sure to mask up with a surgical or N95 and social distance when you can.

See if they can do teledoc? Sometimes, especially now, doctors will do this if they are unable to come in for an appointment. Make up an excuse when you ask, like car broke down or whatever.

Unfortunately this is something I know they need to do a physical exam for.
