So did you need the oxygen machine ?Tested positive on the 4th July.
Immediately bought a oxygen machine and went home.
Early morning was the worst, headache, head felt like it weighed 2tons and blocked everywhere.
Fine now and we were on ivermecim for a while prior and during and still.
Consider ourselves lucky.
Mind trying to explain it here? I'm curious... Do you mean you would have all sorts of random thoughts?This "thinking" drove me nuts . Tried to explain it to the Mrs the one evening but none of it made sense.
Did anyone break out with a skin rash?

In my case I could not stop focusing on a work problem, no matter how much I tried to think about something else. Focus was crazy but hurt my head.Mind trying to explain it here? I'm curious... Do you mean you would have all sorts of random thoughts?
One of my family members said they were "hallucinating". As in their hand didn't look real for example. Maybe it was the meds...

What was also weird was my head hurt when I laid down, if I got up within a couple minutes head ache wasn't so bad.
You'd rather they didn't issue a warning?How is this for a warning that is very very scary!
WHY would such a warning have to be issued by a professional body in SA?
What circumstances led to such a warning being issued by the CCSSA?
Important Notice: Use of non depolarising muscle relaxants in ICUs - COVID-19 - Critical Care Society of Southern AfricaThe CCSSA and SASA have issued this joint statement: Use of non depolarising muscle relaxants in ICUs – COVID-19criticalcare.org.za
And why is the document written in open format on MS Word and not turned into a PDF at the very least?
Then we have all these okes out there that say "trust the system"!
You must be joking!
No of course not.You'd rather they didn't issue a warning?
I had this symptom with some other virus years ago - it is a repetitive image or thought occuring again and again, over and over, like crimson and clover. To be sure, not random.

You didnt by any chance take Codene, I reckon it was Codene/Paracetamol tablets I took, never again!
Agreed, this has to be on the back of an incident somewhere. I guess we will never know.No of course not.
I am asking why is a warning like this even necessary?
And what led them to issue it?
What event? Did a patient actually die? How many? Where? How pervasive was the problem?
The ramifications are damn serious!
You say you lost taste.I went for the first Phizer jab a few weeks back, that evening I started getting really ill.
Tested positive which means I probably had Covid when I went for the vaccine, but had no symptoms before or at the time.
The next two and a half weeks were terrible.
Fever, then cold AF, nasty headaches, muscle aches, nausea, tight chest and coughing.
Lost taste and smell at some point.
I have never been that sick ever in my life, even when I had malaria many years back it was not even close to this, and that was bad at the time.
SPO2 remained 95% and above, so I did not need oxygen and stayed out of hospital.
Much better now, taste and smell not 100% back yet, get tired really easily and often just feel almost like I have a hangover even though I have not had alcohol in more than a month (now that I think of that, maybe that is the real issue, withdrawal ).
Have a colleague in hospital now, he is not doing well at all.
Difficult to say, cannot really recall that but I think not.You say you lost taste.
Did you at all experience a metal-like taste? Or not?
