My symptoms were gone by Wednesday, and I tested negative yesterday morning. 100% back to normal, taste and all.

Wife is still testing positive with the very faintest of lines on her rapid test, but her cardio has almost completely recovered. Her sense of smell and taste is coming back slowly.

Glad we had our shots, that could have been so much sh*ttier.

Honestly, it's just kind of a relief to know that everything I experienced neurologically and cognitively in the last 16 months or so has an explanation. It has been the hardest period of my life dealing with the effects of first the vaccine and then the virus itself, but at least I can now with some confidence say what the source of the issues has been and know that others have had similar experiences, even though there is no explanation of what makes me vulnerable to the virus.

My biggest fear at this point I suppose is that while most people seem to recover, there may be potential of much longer-term health consequences. The Spanish flu apparently resulted in Parkinson's for some people who got it, and some research suggested the same for bird flu. It seems too early to tell for covid, but hopefully it's not also the case.
I got it in January and it took months to get back to 'normal.'

Glad you're back to 'normal' and sorry you've been hit hard by it too. Have you had any helpful medical advice along the way that made much of a difference to it?

I'm 11 months now from getting covid and still substantially affected, and am 16 months out from getting the vaccine and still affected by it too. All day yesterday I had a burning sensation in my arm with little muscle spasms and twitching in my face and arm. It still even wakes me up at night sometimes with the sensation of burning in the nerves of my arm, and all those symptoms just started from the vaccine. Actually getting covid caused an experience like a very bad concussion that lasted for about 7-8 months and was pretty incapacitating for all kinds of cognitive activities as well as seemingly impacting personality. I'm now much better than a few months ago, but it pretty much wiped out my life for most of a year and still left symptoms that hit me daily.

I know people go through much worse health challenges, but this has been the toughest I've had. Wouldn't wish it on anyone, and unfortunately I've found there just isn't much medical guidance.

I should go back to January and check out my posting history. Most of January was essentially just a fever-dream.

Wife and I have been sick this past week and finally tested positive today after a few days of negatives. Guess it was finally our time. We are triple vaxxed so aren't expecting it to be as bad as others have had (hopefully). Feels like it's about a 25% cold that is being held back by something. Wife had one night last week where she woke up at 3am with a pretty big fever, but otherwise nothing major. Just some throat irritation, some sniffles and a small cough.

After spending the last year or so acting normally with no covid precautions I thought our family might be immune, as we've never tested positive before. But I started feeling crappy yesterday and today I finally tested positive. Triple vaxxed, so far it just feels like a bad cold with nasal congestion and a chunky cough. Guess I should finally get around to scheduling my 2nd booster shot, how long should I wait after testing negative again?

We were the same here. I travel a lot for work and nothing. Then in August I had a sniffle and small cough on a trip and didnt even think of Covid. After being home for 3 or 4 days I felt crappy for the first time. Wife suggested maybe covid and picked up some test kits and yes positive. Next day I was fine abd she had her turn. Same as me just like a mild cold. Checked on the next shot and thet said not for 6 months after having it.

Does anyone know how long you need to wait after having Covid before you can get vaccines for shingles etc?

My first Covid.

Felt a bit off on Friday and by Friday evening I was sick. Tested positive on Saturday fever, chills . Tonight I feel slightly off except for the muscle pains especially my stomach from coughing. 3x vaccinated. Hopefully I'm on the mend.
