I tested positive on Sunday August 7 and just tested negative today. I too was vaccinated with two boosters. Monday I was out of it but was much better after that. By Saturday I was ready to be done with isolation. My wife and two kids both tested negative. I was with a group that weekend and at least two others tested positive too. My throat was really sore when I got home, so I did the test. I too did without any medication, except for ibuprofen once.
I wonder if that’s why the number of COVID cases might have been unreported. If you factor in the asymptotic cases, the death rate is a lot lower than the case fatality rate. I think we did a poor job of recognizing / estimating asymptomatic cases
I had pretty mild symptoms. Worst thing at first was “Paxlovid mouth.” But, about a week after finishing Paxlovid, I had a mild fever, chills, badly aches, and fatigue for a few days. Then, a week or two later, I had the dizziness/vertigo that lasted for at least a week. I think that may not be completely gone. Doc gave me an antihistamine that I used for a few days.
With me I had stamina issues and would nap a lot during the day, then be wide awake late at night. I used the time to catch up on work. If yours is anything like mine was, you will get through it just like getting through the flu.
It feels like a mild chest cold. The only odd things are some insomnia which wmj may be right, it’s from my napping. I don’t nap. I had a bout of mild cold sweats. Cough with thick phlegm. The phlegm and cough lasted about a day.I still have a cough but very minor
When I travel the hotel room is normally too hot. So I turn it down. At night it gets to cold and irritates my lungs. That is what it feels like. .
