Said 20-30 percent get the persistent symptoms I’m reporting including heart rate increase, rhythm changes, body temp not falling to normal, cough. He thinks the burning feel are Covid feet rather than neuropathy but cant rule out covid flaring up my AI diseases. I think they are not covid feet.
On the sinuses, he’s unsure. Said happy to give antibiotic but when i told him the consequences to weight and electrolytes he said lets wait 4 days and message him either way . He said its not uncommon to get a second wave of covid symptoms, not from the virus itself but immune system launching a second wave of attack, so could be that too.
On coughing fits, he said sit up so you don’ collapse a lung.
I asked if immune system is strong enough to to fight a sinus infection or herpes recurrence after that and he said what he’s seen is even in immunocompromised folk, covid is not leading to other bad infections, except the occasional bacterial infection. I found that interesting usable factual info
Asked if i could get away with not having blood tests and he said would not change anything he recommends
Did not know anything to bring olfaction back more quickly and i told him about my now abandoned training program
Asked if i needed to protect heart and he said no whatever you can tolerate should
be fine and may help.
I forgot to ask how long til most get rid of heart and temp effects but i suppose the answer not all that relevant to someone who starts out with dysautonomia. He is not surprised my bp higher also
When he heard I was unvaxed and had preexisting conditions and didnt take anything, he seemed surprised i was not hospitalized
I forgot to tell him about how fast it cane on , form nothing to severe in hours Curious if he would have had a comment on that
And in typical manner, while in was talking voice was fine and i barely coughed and i swear practically ever since my voice is catching and cant speak, something burning in throat making me what to cough continuously, and at least once felt i had congestion in chest. I messaged him to mention the chest
I asked another doc if i could come in spontaneously when i felt up to it without apot for him to very quickly check my lungs and he said yes so that may help.
If i can bear to look anything up again, need to see if bronchitis can be detected with a stethoscope. I could get a chest xray but would rather avoid if possible
Im thinking both times - well the i had antibiotic
It lead to migratirty joint pains that lead to wild goose chases for Lyme and RA. Each time lasted a year until something else distracted my body and that took over
Was hoping there was a nebulized antibiotic he could prescribe instead but he says he was not aware of any.
This morning i was too dizzy to leave home not that was planning to anyway. I think it was tge head congestion taking up residence near ears and then later it moved somewhere where less dizzy, more coughing
