RIP. Tell your wife I love her.

Now that you mention it, those symptoms sound exactly like the cold I get every couple of years for the last 30 years.

Oh shit. Have I been getting Covid all these decades? Am I patient zero?!

[–]magnora7[S] 8 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

lol. The difference is when I stand up, I feel like I'm going to pass out, especially if I try to do anything physical. Past colds didn't do that. The contrast between how I feel when sitting and when standing is pretty intense, and it's a feeling I've ever only had with covid.

But it is super weird how they basically stopped counting the flu, and are saying flu cases are like 0.001% the number of normal yearly cases... they're clearly counting flu as covid. But I also think omicron is real and spreading fast.

But who knows for sure, it's hard to read between the lines when there's so much misinfo flying around, our news media is ridiculous tbh

But it is super weird how they basically stopped counting the flu, and are saying flu cases are like 0.001% the number of normal yearly cases... they're clearly counting flu as covid.

Like you, I do believe there are two separate viruses active - too many practitioners (even the critics) have noticed new symptoms never before associated with influenza - but the panic over the new frankenvirus leads doctors to assume the new virus if there is any question. Given the overlap in symptoms, there is always a question, so doctors are covering their ass and calling everything covid.

Whatever you have (which isn't entirely clear based on the symptoms you mention, which are present in multiple conditions), I wish you a speedy recovery.

The fact that omicron is lower morbidity/mortality than the prior rounds of covid really is a huge piece of good news, given that it fits perfectly with what would be predicted by centuries of knowledge with respiratory illnesses. If the medical community had reacted - as they did in prior pandemics - with understanding of the inevitable endemic endpoint to this virus, the world would look very different today. They just can't let go of that control freak impulse, however, "We have to STOP it!!!" Human ignorance is the one bottomless resource in the universe.

Yes, SYNDEMIC. It's half a syndemic:

...half a real infection. Only around 15% of Americans have had covid-19.

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell your wife I love her very much
She knows

This is Ground Control to Major Tom, what the fuck did you say about my wife?

Feel better man. It sounds like you are on a good treatment path. I was doing unrelated research on blood clotting and came across the supplements serrapeptase and nattokinase. they are supposed to help clear clots. maybe worth looking into.

[–]magnora7[S] 8 insightful - 6 fun8 insightful - 5 fun9 insightful - 6 fun -  (7 children)

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I'm feeling pretty good for being ill tbh, if this is the worst of it then I should be over it by Christmas. I just worry about the long-covid stuff, I had diminishing long-covid symptoms on and off every other week for like 6 months in 2021 and finally got over it the first time I tried ivermectin. Then I was 100% good for about a month and now I have covid again. At least now I know I can treat the long covid with ivermectin successfully, it seems. I'll check out serrapeptase and nattokinase, thank you. I've heard things about NAC being good for clots as well, but I don't know anything at all about it. The flushing naicin is also supposed to be good for clearing stuff out after infection. I wonder if there is anything that breaks down the spike proteins directly, that'd be useful to have as well.

[–][deleted] 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (6 children)

Just keep it up with the Ivermectin. The Zelenko protocol has it being used fairly regularly, not a one and done. You're probably aware but it's worth saying just in case.

[–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (5 children)

The Zelenko protocol has it being used fairly regularly, not a one and done.

Thanks for the tip, I've been reading things like that as well. This implies it works via a mechanism other than parasites (where you take it once every 6 months or once a year). Also when I cured my long-covid with it, I took like 1/10th the recommended dose for my weight and it solved all the covid problems. A week later I took a full dose and it didn't change anything. It also made my mind feel extremely clear, and made me less groggy on waking up, which were interesting benefits I didn't expect.

I took like 1/2 a dose for my weight just a couple days ago when I started feeling ill. I'm thinking maybe regular small doses are the way to go regarding covid. I'll read about the Zelenko protocol, thanks.

Yes. I'm pretty ignorant about science, but doctors say Ivermectin has 3 methods of action/helping, whereas Remdesivir that you get in the hospital has only 1- antiviral.

[–]magnora7[S] 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

Interesting. I deeply distrust Remdesivir. The Remdesivir + ventilator combo that was widely used early on unnecessarily killed a lot of people, imo.

[–][deleted] 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Yes. Watch Dr. Peter McCullough on Joe Rogan. I got most of this shit from him. He seems trustworthy and it was an epic interview. I don't know how to link to $potify though.

[–]magnora7[S] 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

There's been a lot of buzz about it, I'll have to check it out.

tl;dr: It seems a lot like the flu in intensity, but the non-flu symptoms are exactly like when I had covid in Dec 2019, but way less severe. Hopefully since it spreads easier and is less severe in symptoms, this will create natural herd immunity and we can be done with covid for real since it's posing less and less of a threat.

Ron Paul on the other side with "Is The Omicron Explosion A Pandemic...Or A 'Test-demic'?":

It could just be an over-testing thing. But I think omicron is real and spreading very rapidly based on what I'm seeing IRL. Although it is possible the testing is over-exaggerating this spread, I wouldn't be surprised to see that sort of thing happening either. All I know is that I'm sick and the symptoms match the covid I had before, but just less in intensity. But it's also possible lots of people have it and the testing is over-exaggerating the amount of people who have it, which is probably the most likely scenario.

Weird that Israel was the first to know.

[–]thoughtcriminal 8 insightful - 5 fun8 insightful - 4 fun9 insightful - 5 fun -  (2 children)

Hope you get well soon. I've been taking D3 + K2 supplements hoping to fortify my immune system a bit. I got a couple jabs back in May but I'm not quite sold on the booster yet. As you said this may be a blessing in disguise if the symptoms are mild and we end up with broad natural immunity.

[–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Thanks. Oh yeah D3 is important, I'm taking that too every day. They've found vitamin D levels inversely correlate with covid severity quite stongly. So people should definitely be taking high-dose vitamin D3. Thanks for mentioning that important part I forgot.

I'm hoping we have broad natural immunity, it'd be so nice to be done with all this covid stuff for real. If it becomes so weak that it kills no one, then the case for fearmongering about it becomes very weak as well.

[–]Jesus 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Always take D3 with k2 w/ the k4's and k6's in the K2.

[–]JasonCarswellMental Orgy 6 insightful - 4 fun6 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Had you been taking anything before this? ie. Vitamin D?

Many folks around Windsor here have had a flu lately, and it's about a week. Not sure why I've been lucky on this front.

[–]Luminato 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

You might consider taking probiotics, which have demonstrated some effectiveness in treating respiratory infections, and of boosting the production of antibodies and immune cells. I take them along with D3, K and quercetin for immunity. The niacin's ability to break up blood clots sounds interesting, and good to know about ethylene oxide; I'll read up on both.

[–]magnora7[S] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks for the info. Interesting idea about the probiotics, I have some so I'll take some just in case it helps.

I did learn to not overdo it with the probiotics though. My sister recently took them daily for years and developed an infection of one of the bacteria in her stomach and had to go on anti-biotics to fight it, and it made her pretty ill for a long time before they figured out what it was. So I try not to take probiotics more than once a week at most, after seeing what happened with her.

Did you get the experimental jab?
There is the idea that it may cause more severe outcomes with this new infection.

[–]magnora7[S] 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

I'm waiting to see the long-term results of the mRNA shots before I take one myself. So maybe in 5-10 years I'll consider it.

It is 55 years now for pfizer... ;-)

[–]magnora7[S] 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Didn't they up it to 75? lol the whole thing is a farce. They discontinued their long-term study after 6 months and gave everyone the shots. Probably to cover up what a failure it was. Didn't even pfizer's own data say it's killed 1,300 people or so? Not to mention both the European and US VAERS data show 20k deaths each, which is itself only approx 10% of total occurrences according to VAERS own statements. It's one of those things where the cure might be worse than the disease... Especially when the companies aren't liable and are rushing to make tens of billions of dollars

High dose vitamin d 5000IU's Zinc, and like some strong Chinese Herbs.

You probably don't have it though, lots of people have the flu and other viral infections right now. Only around 16% of peopel ACTUALLY have had covid in the US if we go by the real numbers and not the syndemic.

[–]send_nasty_stuff 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

If you're supplementing vitamin D 30k IU is optimal.

    I think I have it too. My throat started feeling sore a few days ago and I had some intense ringing in my ears. Doesn't feel like the regular flu as my symptoms would be much worse. It's a viral infection though as my cold sores can attest. I only get them when I get sick. My throat still feels scratchy but I'm already feeling better. Taking vitamin D and zinc supplements seems to have helped although it's just circumstancial evidence.

    I had a really bad flu two and a half years ago unlike anything I ever had before. No sneezing, no runny nose but my lungs felt like they were on fire and coughing almost made me pass out. They seemed like coof symptoms although my illness predated the outbreak by a few months. I haven't been sick until now. My symptoms are quite mild so maybe I already have some sort of immunity. Who knows? Get better soon!

    [–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

    I had some intense ringing in my ears

    I was having this too! I couldn't sleep last night because of it almost. And I don't really have tinnitus or anything, but I seem real extra-sensitive to my senses in a way that makes me annoyed. I had to turn on a fan for white noise, which is something I normally dislike.

    And now I've had a headache for 3 hours. I never have headaches, maybe 2 a year, and they last for 15 minutes and are always mild. Oof, going to take some ibuprofen or something.

    I've heard to make sure to take some Quercetin or Hydroxychloroquine with the zinc or else it's not nearly as effective against covid. Quercetin is a cheap and common supplement you can get on amazon. I'm no doctor, but I keep reading about this, how the zinc needs an ionophore to transport it in to the cells so it can properly fight covid. Check out how many scientific papers there are about this combination:

    Sounds like you have it, given that the timing and symptoms line up. I hope you get better soon! Just be patient and get lots of food and water and rest. I had it twice and both times the biggest problem was feeling better and then doing a bunch of stuff and then having a relapse and feeling terrible. So I'm just not going to do anything even remotely strenuous at all until I'm back to nearly 100%, that's going to be my strategy for the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the info. I'll heed that advice if the symptoms get worse but for now, I think I'm heading for full recovery with barely any symptoms left.

    [–]magnora7[S] 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Nice. I'm cautiously optimistic as well, feeling not too bad all things considered

    [–]jamesK_3rd 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    You might consider a home health test, just to confirm your suspicion and it doesn't get counted in the positive category case count unless you report it.

    Other than that, thoughts and prayers that you get feeling better. Sounds like you got it figured out though.

    Hopefully you're feeling better for Christmas and New Year!!

    Merry Christmas

    The fact it spreads so easily and the symptoms are so weak is actually a very hopeful thing

    Been saying the same thing myself, that this is actually great news. Omicron is now the dominant strain in the US, and while deaths do lag behind infections obviously, only one person has died from that variant here (supposedly) so far.

    In the end, it looks like the best course of action would have been to do nothing except treat the individual with existing meds.

    Get well soon.

    [–]MarkJefferson 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Take it easy and get well soon. Omicron(or Xi) may be one of the better strains to get based on the ratios. It's spreading like wildfire. People gotta realize it'll be endemic.
