I got it in March and still suffering. Heart arrhythmia and breathing problems. Hard to sleep as the other poster said. Feels like lungs collapse.

Never used to be on any meds...now 4 serious ones.

I take a daily multi vitamin, have been for years. I also used to get plenty of exercise, working out and doing 3 days of cardio per week and 2 days of strength conditioning. Got plenty of sun too. I'm 42, 5'10, and 170lbs. While I'm not as healthy or as strong as I was in my 20's or early 30's, there probably aren't too many early 40-somethings out there in better shape than I was. None of that mattered when getting this.


My best guess is that I got it from my masseuse. I used to go once a week for 1.5 hours. I found out after the fact that she had just been in California and had returned from vacation there, and then of course I spent 90 min in a small room where we breathed the same air. Or, it could just as easily have been a client that came in before me and had that same room for an hour or more.

A friend got malaria on a trip to Africa years ago. After he recovered from malaria, he developed debilitating migraine headaches. Although mostly under control now, there are all kinds of triggers he has to avoid and probably will the rest of his life.

You brought flu up.

You cannot meditate your way out of a coronavirus infection.



As of today, it has been a death sentence for over 128,000 Americans. Many of the survivors are not able to work out and enjoy life even months after they ostensibly have recovered.
Yet you have no idea how many would have died anyway from "natural cause" like everyone does every...single...day. in 2017 over 60,000 deaths actually linked to flu. Is it worse? Hell ya, is it worth plunging the world into a global depression? This will go on for at least a year.

Yes, we do have an idea how many people die - from all causes - daily.

If the virus had initially been allowed to go unchecked with no effort to mitigate it people would have voluntarily holed up in their homes and the economic effects would have been severe, with a higher death toll.

Lots of boys returned from the war with lifelong ailments caused by malaria. There's a lot of diseases out there in the developing world that would give you nightmares for real..and yet people there somehow go through life.



Of course, it's why their life expectancy is much lower as well, but to put it into context: a life free from fear of infectious disease has only been possible for a small % of people in a very small time window of human existence.



There always was a decent chance that it wasn't going to stay that way forever.

Not to mention there are other problems with sheltering too long. I think, by using common sense we can all go about our lives as close to normal as can and enjoy ourselves.

I am glad you are feeling better> I am wondering just how many of us need to be tested. I do imagine most of us have been exposed to it by now and we can not all get tested every time we think we have been exposed.

I wonder how many people can remember the Asian flu in the late 50s or the Korean flu in the 60s? I know millions died during the Asian flu outbreak and we did continue to live our lives. Of course this was before 24/7 coverage.
