Hi! I got Covid 19 in the beginning of November and have never been so sick. It seems there are so many unknowns with this virus. I did not go out, but my husband did and brought it home. He had the 15 day version and is better. My compromised immune system has not been able to fight as well.
I live in the USA. I have lupus as well as other problems.
It is 6 weeks later and I am somewhat better, but still struggling including no taste, low grade fevers, sores in mouth and throat, choking drainage in throat, no stamin, etc.
I discovered by accident that the antibodies for antiphospholipid are also show up in Covid 19. I am wondering if since I already had the antibodies that are also in Covid 19, it could put us at more risk.
Antibodies IG G and IG M that are for antiphospholipid show up in Covid 19 and have caused clotting problems. I am bringing this up because like others, I have tested positive for antiphospholipid antibodies for 20+ years and because I have never had a blood clot, the doctors do not think it is worrisome. (I am on blood thinner now for A-Fib.)
Please take care. It is no fun and other than over the counter things for the nausea, diarrhea, etc. there is no help and you can't even go to the doctors.
Thanks to everyone for such great support. This is my first time posting.

Thank you for the encouragement. On Thanksgiving, my husband brought in dinner as it is really hard to cook and not know how it tastes. I eat things by texture now. I really wonder how it will be after so long getting taste back.
