F uck dude, sounds gnarly! I reckon you through the worse of it. At least I hope so, for your sake but you been battling this bug for over 3 weeks now, correct?A quick re-cap:
So the rumors are definitely true...COVID recovery is NOT linear.
A few hours after waking up feeling 90%, I starting taking a severe dip again and all the terrible symptoms were back in full swing.
Ended up going to ER yesterday. Was put on 2 drips, to help with fever and de-hydration.
This alone cost me R 2 500 and the scripts another R 500.
Didn't feel like it helped at all. Oxygen stats were at 99% and lungs indicated no issues.
I do however cough more now and every time I take a really deep breath my lungs burn and I start coughing uncontrollably which is fukkin scary tbh.
They put me on Cortisone, Antibiotics and strong meds for pain and fever.
I had to change clothing twice throughout the night due to soaking cold sweats.
i am still extremely exhausted, disorientated and dizzy.
Fuk this is really bad....
