I caught my second round of COVID for Christmas 2021. I have been in Quarantine since 2021, and will come out when the cough stops and the fever stays broken. My experience with SARS-COV2, versus Omicron was day and night.
With SARS-COV2, I had over 200 symptoms, 63 trips to the Emergency Room, 3 lifesaving 911 calls, 2 sepsis alerts. This version began serious with stroke symptoms, sudden diabetes, mind splitting migraines and breathing difficulty.
With Omicron I have less than 30 symptoms, none TOO severe. At the onset, of omicron, my pulse oxygen dropped to the low 80s. From Sars I learned my baseline wellness was 95 -98 and I felt sick at 94 and with SARS-COV2, 90 was the worse it got. I started with digestive issues, nausea, headache, breathing problems. Then migrated to fever, cough, loss of sense of smell and taste (never had that in SARS-COV2), shivering then roasted, petichiae and skin rushes of redness came again. I was feeling better by the end of week, except coughing, exhaustion and fevers.
Recently I got a juicer so I can make fresh juice that can get in my system and aid in healing and reestablishing my immune system.
Then today came. I felt awful all over, digestive problems, fever, coughing when I try to talk
- Body Shivers
- Full body aches particularly back aches
- Extreme coughing that is not helped by medicine
- Face flushing and petechiae patches on my skin
