It hurt to walk, it hurt to drive, it hurt to sit up, and it hurt to sleep. An incredible feeling of weakness overall.

In some ways, it wasn't as bad as a standard flu (I was more functional than during most bouts of the flu, which I average getting every other year since moving to CO {13 years}), but in others it was much worse. I felt like I just had to hang on until it was over, it was more despairing if that makes any sense.

I had mononucleosis when I was 15 (36 now). This flu described above ranks 2nd to that in my life career, even accounting for the relative functionality.
Sounds like it coulda been Corona. Kaiser probably didn't even have a test specific to it yet, at that time. IDK if you can find someone with a test now, to test you to see if you have antibodies for it...

Whatever this was went straight to my lungs they felt heavy and wet and I started to employ every single pneumonia lung saving technique I have ever been taught . TERRIBLE fever .weight loss , I was thirsty until just recently body hurt like h*ll , but nose stayed clear and throat not sore . It was the weirdest thing .

I could not get up , not hungry lasted for 2 weeks then a 3 week was almost as rough , could not breathe . I struggled for breath and to clear my lungs the entire time , they were on FIRE and what was in them was like wall paper paste , this was severe . I had ZERO drainage.

The night sweats were outlandish . I would have to get up and change myself and the bed for days and days . I was soaked .
I finally got so sick I went to the dr but they told me they had no appts and to go home or to a minor er , so I went home .

I have about given up on Drs anymore . You cant ever see one when you need one
This is scary, especially your lung symptoms! Why didn't your PCP have any appointments? Mine always keeps some open for urgent cases for their regular patients. Good heavens, and you're only "just now getting back to normal"?!

This scares the heck out of me! It sounds like you had a pretty severe case.

I've heard this same thing from so many people. Various ages, all different symptoms. Scary to think it was going around then and we didn't know.

Here's something of interest to those, who think they may have had Corona last fall. I think the immunity card proposal is a little weird, but it says, that antibody tests would be made available en masse soon, so at least that part would be a good thing.

I posted a whole thread on this back in March and was literally shut down by another poster who said I was mistaken.

I visited the East Bay from 16-20 Jan and I took the BART train from/to SFO to the Concord station.

Upon returning to Colorado, I experienced what I thought was an awful cold. It gave me a wicked cough which I thought was atypical for a cold. However, I did not have a fever. It took me about 16 days to get over it.

Now I wonder, did I pick up Covid-19 on that trip?

In a way, I hope so. As soon as a test is available to check for antibody markers, I'll sign up.

All humanity may have been exposed to intelligence many times over many thousands of years ... and yet it has not (obviously) infected any serious percentage of the exploding population.

Proof of herd immunity?
