My sister had it in mid November and it was strange because she had just been tested for a work thing and it had come back negative. Then about a week later she started feeling under the weather and had a horrible cough. She isolated at home and did a home test which of course came back positive! It took her a few weeks to be back on her feet, but still today she's dealing with the after effects.

My boyfriend got it first in September and then I got it from him. We live together so it was inevitable.

@mamalove58 I had it in October and now I have lung damage too. Did they give you anything to help your breathing afterwards? I didn't have asthma or anything before but they gave me an inhaler to use when my breathing is bad that looks like the one my niece uses for her asthma.

I tested positive April 8, 2021. My husband and I had our 1st dose (Pfizer) 3-12-21 & our 2nd dose 4-06-21, So when I tested positive, I was asymptomatic, the only symptom I had was fatigue. I was in to see my doctor a couple days before and she wrote it off as low iron due to my anemia and my Crohns. She made an appointment for me to have a Monoclonal antibody therapy infusion.It did help me feel better a few days after I had it. I also had to quarantine for a week. Luckily, my husband didn't test positive nor did he get sick.
Here is a little information about it.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized two monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatments for emergency use: etesevimab and bamlanivimab or casirivimab and imdevimab. These treatments could help your immune system respond more effectively to the virus that causes COVID-19, reducing the chances that your symptoms will get worse. It did help me feel better a few days after I had it. I also had to quarantine for a week. Luckily, my husband didn't test positive nor did he get sick.
God is good.

I had Covid in December 2020. I've had shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, and extreme thirst ever since. I had the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in April. Absolutely no side effects. Not even a sore arm!! Was hoping for the symptoms to go away or at least subside but no such luck. Waiting for my insurance to ok an echocardiogram and a stress test. Already had a neg pulmonary function test.

I think you will most likely believe that I am not correct with the following information. However, it is true, I had the test to determine if I had Covid 19 and I tested H with score of >20 when a negative test bench mark is <1. I actually had Covid in May 2019. Yes, I typed 2019 and it was a very mild case. I have further found out that eating a great amount of Garlic and Onions will increase your immune system and I do eat a lot amount of garlic and onions.

I was diagnosed February 28 of this year. I stayed out of work the required 10 days but should have taken off a couple more. My symptoms were mild, mostly felt super-exhausted. Have not had any residual symptoms.
