Thank you.



I hope you won't mind if I favor the advice and treatment of my hand picked highly regarded physicians over a guy on the internet "touting" medical advice because he has a financial interest in the stocks.



It's your choice.

I would suggest doing your own due diligence.

Research Leronlimab.

Quit being so logical, that is what Big Brother wants you to do. I second Darkoz recommendation and I have quite a medical history after going through 23 surgeries. Just because I also own some Cytodyn isn't a good enough reason to ignore me. I also worked in medical research for 4 years. so I am probably a bigger expert than anyone that has only studied Covid for the last six months.

Funny, DRich. :)

I am very proactive when it comes to my medical care, long before covid. I try to learn everything I can about my conditions. But reading information on Mayoclinic.com or JohnHospkins, doesn't substitute for the medical expertise of my physicians. It does allow me to be informed and ask questions.

It's kind of funny. I see two doctors regularly, My primary care doctor and my cardiologist. One of them loves that I try to read up and be as informed as I can, while the other is somewhat annoyed at it. He says things like "You aren't even supposed to be reading that kind of stuff".

I don't care. I am not trying to be an armchair doctor, but I do want to learn as much as I can and be as informed as possible about my health.

I had back surgery last year and my surgeon was a specialist at Johns Hopkins. He recommended the Cleveland Clinic website to me and suggested staying away from Webmd.com.

almost everything was gone except the fatigue.



I had it most of February and
the fatigue is still here. I never
took naps, now I take two a
day. One after I've been up
4 hours, and another after
I've been up another 4. The
second nap is usually 90 min.
The first 30-45 min. Most of
my stamina is gone, but I'm
more than twice your age.

I know that first 4 hour wall
is coming so I get as much
done as possible. Fun times..

Not "rare" but not too common either at least yet, but I have read of a number of cases of myocarditis (inflammation around heart) in recent days. It is definitely a longer term issue, occurring months after initial infection and illness and we are now just getting to the point that we are months after the first outbreaks of March and April, so you may see more of this and other longer term issues coming to light.

Just to update the Eduardo Rodriguez situation, he has now been ruled out for the season.

In the article below, Rodriguez states that his doctor told him that 10-20% of people who had Covid-19 have later been diagnosed with Myocarditis. That seems an extraordinary high number. I haven't heard anything like that.

Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle itself.
Pericarditis is inflammation around (the pericardium) the heart.
