There's some commitment.

Truthfully, it reminds me a bit of gold rush... Yeah, there will be real gold for some. But a lot of people are going to lose depending on speed, effectiveness and price.

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



True. And while I am currently being treated for Pericarditis and Eduard Rodriguez is being treated for Myocarditis, both are heart related complications (inflation) as a direct result of a virus, in this case covid-19.

The big picture that I don't think enough people yet understand is that there are more long term complications associated with this virus, that medical/science experts are just beginning to understand, because we are just now getting into the longer term time frame. Complications with heart, brain, and other organs.

According to statistics, I have had covid 19 (tested positive), and recovered (later tested positive for antibodies). So I am in that "recovered" category. I don't feel recovered. Between the extreme fatigue that I have not been able to shake for months, decreased lung capacity, causing me to get winded like someone far beyond my years, and chest pain and pressure that lead to my pericarditis diagnosis, I am just no where near where I was before contracting this virus.

When my fatigue went on long after all other symptoms disappeared, I just assumed this was some kind of lingering symptom. But as more and more people who have supposedly "recovered" get into months after the initial illness and are still dealing with all sorts of issues, including some that pop up months later, it is becoming quite clear there are definite long-term "issues" with this virus.

It all goes back to one simple thing. This is a new virus, that the doctors are just beginning to understand. Really, I just want my F***ing life and health back to where it was 5 months ago. :(

Wow! That means you're the new COVID19 Index Case for Michigan. That predates the prior Michigan Index Case by several weeks. The state Department of Health and Human Services, the CDC, the NIH, the WHO and a slew of research institutes will probably be contacting you shortly for tests and details. Thanks for your contribution to science.

There is no penalty for lying on WoV. And likewise, there is no penalty for pointing it out!

KEWLJ.... two things... you are a zillion times more likely to get pericarditis than the average Joe because of your two previous open heart surgeries! The pericardium, usually NEVER touched, has been sliced through......

You keep saying your lung capacity is diminished? Are you aware that there are what are called "pulmonary function tests" that will tell you if that is true or not? Your lungs may be normal and you just may be tired for another reason. As an example, anemia (I'm sure your doctors would know if you are anemic) can cause tiredness and a feeling of shortness of breath. So could obesity. So could lots of things.

You mentioned a bunch of doctors that are taking care of you, but neglected to mention an Infectious Disease specialist? I can assure you, if I get COVID-19, I'm not having my internist, who I like A LOT, be in charge of my COVID-19 related care. Especially with your serious side issue, being an artificial valve, I'd certainly see an ID specialist. I can refer you to one in Vegas! (I get no kickback...!)

Severe air pollution can cause a severe shortness of breath, especially after COVID-19. I've got my ionizers with UV lamp here.

They may have to do an autopsy to see what's wrong with him.

What are you talking about. I've
mentioned this several times
here. I took an Uber ride on
Jan 24th and got sicker than
I've ever been 10 days later.
Extreme fatigue, and all the
symptoms. My doc told me
later it was covid 19 after he
had treated a bunch of other
patients. I talked about this
here months ago.

Oh... ok... thanks.... like because you 'talked about it' that means it is true! Come on!!!!!! Your 'doctor' made the diagnosis retroactively with NO ANTIBODY test? It is not a zero percent chance you had it then, but darn close to it. Others have pointed out your flawed timeline. Last post on this for me. The rest of the forum knows you didn't have it then but post away to your heart's content, if it makes you feel good.
