^ so how do you know that's what it was? from the symptoms? what happened? i mean, you didn't isolate/quarantine, right? so you ended up spreading it to others i guess?

were the symptoms really bad? any long-covid effects? hope you fully recovered.

^ This was right around Xmas of 2019, and based on some studies, apparently COVID was present in CA/the Bay Area as early as that November, so it seems likely it was.

I remember when it came on-- felt like a horrible case of the flu and I immediately had aches/chills and could not stop shaking/shivering. I had a fever that got as high as of 103.1 that night, so I took Aleve hoping it was just some stomach bug/food poisoning, but then I developed a crazy non-stop, non-productive cough where I literally couldn't catch my breath, so I went to the ER the next morning. They did influenza A/B tests (both were negative) and gave me a breathing treatment (I had asthma as I kid that I had thought I outgrew), and they sent me on my way, with a script for a rescue inhaler/albuterol and told me to come back if I wasn't better in a day or two.

The fever came back that night and the coughing just would not stop. This wasn't a bronchitis type cough where you're hacking up green/yellow shit-- it was clear fluid and despite hitting the inhaler like a crack pipe every few minutes, I thought I was having a full blown adult asthma attack that was turning into pneumonia. I could literally hear my lungs crackling and I was wheezing out of control

Anyway, I went back and they took chest X-rays and gave me a Zpak and prednisone, along with another breathing treatment, which only helped for like 30 mins. They tested for pneumonia and that came back negative too, but they officially diagnosed me with some form of bronchitis and told me to rest/sleep.

IDK remember the exact timeline, but I was bed ridden for the next few days and then I guess the steroids/Zpak helped my body recover and the fever stopped and the cough started to fade. I think it was maybe a week total? By NYE, I was feeling like I could function again, but I had a nagging, unproductive cough that lasted a while after. How my spouse didn't get sick remains a total mystery.

I did the antibody test in April (?) of 2020 and it came back inconclusive at first, which was weird, and then negative.

I've probably had a dozen or so COVID PCR tests since and all came back negative.

IDK if it was actually COVID or not, but the fever/cough/mindfuck/etc all made me the feel like I could have died.

Either way, happy to have my second Pfizer dose which has been a breeze compared to dose 1. :shrug:

I get my second Pfizer shot next Wednesday.

Question for all you. Let's say two months from now if I want to get the JJ shot, assuming we reach scale for all of those who want a shot can get one, should that boost my immune response against Covid since it is a different tech than the Moderna/Pfizer shots?

For anyone wondering why I would do this. Basically any basic respiratory infection or sickness crushes me. I don't have an official underlying condition but knowing this about myself makes me really afraid of Covid and I'd like to double down on protection since I know there is always a chance a vaccine series fails.

^The logic behind that doesn't make a ton of sense to me. The second Pfizer dose is what's supposed to boost your immune response close to 100%. The JJ is less effective than either Moderna/Pfizer so why get a "booster" of a less effective vaccine that doesn't work the same way as the other two to begin with? Are you worried about the new variants?

I think if you feel like shit after dose 2 of Pfizer you'll be good to go

Yeah, thanks. It was the sickest I've ever been in my adult life, so thankfully I recovered without any lasting complications.My 50 year old cousin was on a vent for a few weeks and he's still got lingering health issues, which sucks big time. I also think I'm lucky to have gotten it early since I had no clue what it was and I immediately went to get treatment instead of just trying to ride it out at home, or worse, not being able to get ANY treatment because the hospitals would be overloaded...

I get my second shot on Wednesday of next week, so the JJ consideration would follow my second shot of Pfizer, with the assumption being taking a second type of vaccine, following both shots of Pfizer would help my immune system more since it’s not mRNA based.

I think that there's a study that suggests that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is more effective against the Brazilian variant than the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are, although that finding may just be an anomaly.

With that being said, I received my first Moderna shot today.

Got my 2nd Moderna yesterday around 12. Fine during the day with arm soreness starting around 3pm.

By 6 pm was extremely tired, headache, and joint pain.

Arm soreness continued throughout the night until took 2 Tylenol for fever. I broke my fever around 3 am. Sweating so bad pillow was soaked and the sheets were moist TMI!

Woke up around 8 am to clear my head and continued forearm pain. no other symptoms.

Today has been great!

Moved up my second dose and got it yesterday at 4PM. So I'm about 24 hours and my biggest issue is that I've felt a little high for hours at a time, on and off. As in my thinking is fuzzy and it was really hard for me to get out of bed today.

I'm also feeling some slight soreness but not too much. The soreness is limited to the areas where I normally feel soreness first thing in the morning [old], such as my achilles, knees, and elbows. My wife was down for the count until about hour 30.

I'm hoping I can skate by, but am a little concerned since @thegoodlife3 said he felt ill 48 hours later, rather than 24.

Lymph node under the injected arm is swollen, so the arm is tender to move. That arm is also currently sore from the shoulder to the elbow, but no fever or anything else of that sort. I'm about 40 hours in, so I assume I've experienced what I'm going to experience at this point.

Note: That first day and night I drank a shit ton of water. They said it helps and while I normally don't buy the hydrate after a massage or drink tons of water everyday commentary, I didn't want to risk it here. I also took extra strength Aleve and Tylenol about 6 hours afterward before bed that first night and then once again the following day. Nothing today.

I am genuinely scared. I am going to wait for as long as I can, until more safety data comes out for the different vaccines -- I have access to Sinovac, Oxford, and Pfizer.

https://www.bbc.com/news/health-56620646

Covid-19: Seven UK blood clot deaths after Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine

Quote :
"Seven people have died from unusual blood clots after getting the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine in the UK, the medicines regulator has confirmed to the BBC.

In total, 30 people out of 18 million vaccinated by 24 March had these clots.

[...]

There have been two cases of CVSTs after Pfizer in the UK, out of more than 10 million vaccinated, but these did not have the low platelet levels."


I guess Pfizer is winning compared to the Oxford vaccine, which has been halted in over a dozen European countries for weeks now

P.S. In Germany 9 times as many people -- as a ratio of total vaccinated -- have died from the Oxford vaccines relative to in the UK ( ), with the reason theorized to be the fact that 90% of the recipients in Germany have been those under 60 years old (completely opposite of UK), and younger people have stronger side effects.

Quote :
"Germany's Paul Ehrlich Institute has reported 31 cerebral venous sinus thromboses and nine deaths out of 2.7 million people vaccinated there."


The rate of this specific type of blood clot among vaccinated individuals is way higher than the rate in the general population.

^^^^ yeah after initially thinking I was tired from poor sleep and a busy work schedule...I’m now thinking it’s from the vaccine. I’m achy and very tired. Which is pretty unusual for me. But it’s all worth it.

The fatigue/brain fog was the absolute worst part. Having to try and explain shit to people on ZOOM when you feel like you're coming down from some bad acid trip, combined with aches/chills fucking sucked. Still better than COVID though! Trust me on that one.

I know so many people had it and had mild cases/zero symptoms, but if you feel like shit because of Pfizer dose 2, I can promise you COVID would've probably sent you to the ER.

As for me, now I'm dealing with horrid spring allergies, so it's been a real treat these past few weeks, since I'd completely forgotten what it's like to feel sick since...having COVID and dose 1

Got my first dose today. I'm very, very tired, but that's because I woke up at 4:30 in the morning to work at the vaccine clinic and not because of the shot. I'm doing a 30 day deployment to help with the process and it is exhausting.

Same with my 2nd dose. Especially the next day. I'm not so sure this didn't last for a few days. I'm not a morning person and don't get enough sleep to begin with so it was hard to tell if it was normal mornings or if it was worse due to the shot. Damn allergies are not helping either.
