Could you describe your disease course?
I had what would be classified as a mild case because I'm early 20s with no preconditions but it was terrible. Worst sickness I've had in my life.
I started off with all the stereotypical symptoms on day 1 so I knew I had it almost immediately before I got tested. This included: cough, weightloss (3 lbs within two days), diarrhea, the worst migraine of my life, fever (101 degrees), and fatigue.
I slept all day for the first 2 days and had no strength to get out of bed.
By day 3 of symptoms my cough and fever had went away and I was left with the worst fatigue imaginable. I continued to rapidly lose weight and was only able to digest high calorie fluids.
By day 5 I thought I had recovered. I over exerted myself by going on a walk in my backyard and this was my worst mistake. When I came inside I could not get out of bed and I reached what they describe as the critical phase of COVID-19 the time that it gets significantly worse right when you think it gets better.
I could not open my eyes at all the next day and when I say I slept for 24 hours I mean I couldn't even lift my phone at all. My chest also developed severe pains (oddly enough with no cough). This lasted for 3 days and I honestly thought I was going to die.
Then I started to get better slowly. Fatigue began to go away and I developed a loss of smell and taste for 3 days.
Right now I believe I'm free from the virus because I have the energy to do daily tasks, I have no sinus pressure, and my smell and taste came back today. I'm still super nauseous and cannot eat much but so thankful because I think I got through the worst.
