I too had all the symptoms of this virus; dry cough, slight fever, sore throat and felt really drained. The worst of it was over in a week, but took another 2 or 3 weeks after until I felt back to normal. Wife had similar symptoms along with bad sinusitis. Strange thing was the amount of flem that came out at the end of the worst part of the virus. Our 2 kids were fine, although my daughter had a bit of a cough and a runny nose.

This started on the second last week of February and I'm in Scotland. I work in a school, and a few of the other staff were ill, as were some of the kids.

Don't think anyone went to the doctors due to this, so will probably never know if this was covid-19 or not!


My story is EXACTLY the same as yours, except for the kids. Empty nesters. But mine happened in Mexico and was in January. I know exactly where I caught it, too, and the woman who passed it to me (cashier at a take-out restaurant) told me after she'd handed me my change just how sick she was.

You guys know they identified this as a novel virus in November when people were catching it from the wet market, right? At that time it wasn't transmissible between humans. About two weeks later, it mutated to transfer from human to human. Since it was discovered in China in November, there's a chance that a few other countries caught it from Chinese travelers, but those chances are very, VERY slight.

In January I caught something that put me on the couch for a day, and my wife and two of the kids for a week. Another daughter got sick as hell two weeks ago and tested negative for the flu. There's more viruses out there than our simple minds can comprehend. Doesn't mean any of you had COVID-19.

I was sick as hell in october as well. Lasted a month. I think it was actually the seasonal cold. You should see if you can get tested foe antibodies to find out.

This virus has been here since october or sooner, Mid November I was sick for a week and a half my symptoms mimiced the Covid-19 symptoms almost to the letter. Honestly I had forgotten about being sick in November, My girlfriend reminded me a few days ago she looked at me and said " babe we have already had this virus in november" I thought for a second , then looked at her and exclaimed " your a genius ! " She was absolutly right , I have been talking to a Doctor that goes to my gym . He said with out a doubt this Covid-19 has been here since atleast October, tons of patients coming to the ER getting mis-diagnosed because they had no clue that Covid-19 was already in circulation. All of these patients he said were being tested for Both types of Flu and Pneumonia testing negative to both, they would write them some anti-biotics to treat the infection caused by the Virus and send them on there way.

Me personally I was tested for both Flu and Pneumonia while I was sick, and tested negative for both. Now I never ever get sick, My girlfriend got sick and almost like clock work I became sick with in a few days. My family practice Doctor told me with out a doubt I had some sort of Viral infection he just had no idea what it was.

Guys and Gals this whole thing is just SPIN, they are using this to progress some sort of agenda just like on 9/11.

Over 60million people in this country were infected during the H1N1 virus pandemic, and they never closed a damn thing .

Ditto. November I was off for a little over five days, was proper sick, I was bed ridden for a fair few days and my Doctors had no clue and in fact one of them just said "Oh maybe its the flu and a cold" yes a Dr actually said that. The only symptom I didn't have was the trouble breathing but I put that down to being 34 years old and pretty much healthy. Doctor rang me about a week ago to speak to me and ran through some of my symptoms, he asked if anyone else in my house got sick and they did my brother and Mother, who is disabled both came down with the same thing although strangely Mum wasn't that badly hit by it although she is on a ton of pills so maybe a combination of those helped her.

The doctor said that he thinks and said he could only say thinks we may have had it in the early days but couldn't be sure. I put it down to having a man flu but meh if my GP thinks we had it then heck I'm going to go with their opinion.

I posted this in another thread earlier today......

Back in January I had conjunctivitis in my left eye.
Then a few days after that cleared up, the left side of my face broke out with what I thought was Shingles.
I never had Chicken Pox when I was a kid and my doctor said it couldn’t be Shingles because I never had the Pox.
But he did prescribe me an anti-viral medication that cleared it up in about 4-5 days but he never really gave me an answer as to what it could have been.
Roughly a month ago, I came down with something....100-101 fever for 2-3 days, runny nose, terrible headaches for a week, tightness in my chest, coughing like crazy of which I still have almost a month later but going away slowly.
Doctor told me nothing to worry about, gave me some kind of medicine which I don’t remember the name.

Something really felt different in my chest while I had this sickness.
I am better now but still have the lingering cough a little bit.

No, you believe you had it. That is all.

Basically mirrors what I went through in February. Both strains of flu were negative, and the doctor and one point made the comment that it sounded like I was starting to develop pneumonia. I had a fever of around 103 for about a week straight. My 3yo got it too, but she was only sick for about 3 days.

I got that after talking to my neighbor. The missus is just coming out of it. I don't actually know anybody who hasn't had it around here.

You guys have it all figured out! Let's defund the CDC, WHO, fire the surgeon general, etc... This is just that flu we all had. I have no idea why I continue my account with this place.

Yes I do. Entertainment.

I’ve never had a flu test, despite going quite a few times to the doctor. While exhibiting flu like symptoms.
Wasn’t until bronchitis set in that I went.
No tests, just things to alleviate symptoms.

Is it common to be given flu tests? I mean during normal circumstances.

A Chinese doctor wrote a paper about cases presenting with conjuctivitus. Another wrote a paper about odd discoloration of the tongue and a terrible taste in the mouth. Sorry, can't find the accounts. It was from r/covid19 weeks ago.

We're simply sharing anecdotal accounts. On a discussion forum. Which is what doctors in Wuhan did on a chat app prior to zeroing in on CV19. Get off your soap box, if you don't care to share or read the accounts, click away.

I had something bite me really hard a couple months back as well. First day I was totally zapped of energy all day and came home and crashed. Then the next day it really hit hard. Bad ache but minimal fever I never took my temp.

I have no idea what it was but went and bought a quart of honey and took a tablespoon morning and evening until the honey and the illness were gone.

Also carried some dayquil to work just for those moments with sniffles runny eyes or stuffiness. I continued to eat my apple a day as well, cold out of the fridge in the morning.

The best thing I've found for my terrible allergies is to boil water and flush out my nose and eyes morning evening and noon too if I'm close enough to stop by home for lunch. Many times the boiled water will keep me from getting sick.

I can catch a sinus infection from a train blowing the dust up sitting at a red light. I feel it coming on instantly.
I can usually stop it in the next instant by taking a handful of my drinking water and inhaling through my nose and blasting it out to remove the dust. I'm talking about vacuuming the water up not just sniffing it. LOL!
I don't like taking pills if something more natural works. Glad you all survived whatever you had.
Maybe it was Covid-19?

I never had a flu test or a pneumonia test until I went to the doctor with that crap the 2nd time I got it back in October. I didn't ask for them or anything, doc just did them because my symptoms didn't fit the bill for anything that was going around at that time- so I would say that no, it isn't all that common.

Yeah my wife and I was sick in first part of feb... it started like a small sore throat and then I started weezing... but i was able to cough up yellow mucus cause I said this may turn worser..... it then moved into my ears and stopped them up.... everytime I laid down in bed the weezing got worse... it took 3 weeks to beat it... I cough so much my lungs got so sore.
Now they saying hearing loss is a lesser known symptom..... I had that also like the one lady said...

I had a similar experience in February. Was clearly a viral infection, classic symptoms of influenza, fever, chills, stuffy nose. My initial impression was just a garden variety flu. I was aware of CV at that time, but figured it was localized to China and APAC, so no possible way it could near me yet. After 3 weeks, and various peaks and valleys of recovery and relapse, felt like I got past the illness.

The two aspects of this illness that seemed different to me (from previous bouts of flu) was much stronger feelings of fatigue/weakness, but also a sensation that my lower respiratory system & lungs were inflamed and taking on more phlegm than usual.

The thing is though, I don't think it's wise to assume anything at this point. I might have had COVID, but likely I did not. There is no way to confirm it retroactively. At that time, no one in the US was testing; doubt there were even test kits circulating yet. Also, nobody else in my family fell ill. COVID's r-naught/infectiousness is allegedly much higher than regular flu, so I find it hard to believe that if I had COVID, nobody in my family caught it from me.

It may be a good omen if I did contract this, and it really wasn't much worse than normal flu. There's just insufficient data for me to say that, so I am proceeding with things as if I have never been in contact with CV yet.

Your faith in the above mentioned Government organizations is misplaced my friend. I worked for the Government for a little over 8 years, and I can tell you I had to fill out 3 pages of paper work just to get some paper clips, then put in a requisition for said paperclips then wait at least 2 days or longer to get said paper clips.

The CDC , WHO and others like them are bureaucratic night mares, with miles of red tape and piles of bull # you have to swim through just to accomplish simple task.

I place my trust in individuals , particularly medically trained individuals who I know personally. Not some bloated Government agency.

Same here. Until there is an antibody test available to the public, we have to go about as if we are still at risk.

I was also very sick about 2 months ago here in Australia with something very similar to Covid-19. The venue I work at held University exams after the Christmas holidays and we had over a 1000 Chinese students there, many if whom had just returned to Australia after visiting home.

I very rarely get sick, but I remember being worried at how aggressive the illness came on, and how "artificial" it felt. Several times I almost recovered from it, but then it would re-appear, as if it was shielding itself from my immune system somehow. I ended up having a severely blocked sinus due to mucus turning very hard and rubbery, which is exactly what the autopsies from Covid-19 casualties are showing.

I tried antibiotics, saline washes and steroid sprays but nothing worked. I finally got on to a supplement called Del-Immune V which is a probiotic strain that was thought to be lost, but was recently rediscovered in Russia, and combined with some "medicinal" honey that a friend of mine produced, I recovered again.

Certainly makes you wonder if this disease has been around for longer!
