    Are you sure the diarrhea wasn’t from Covid?

    I’m not sure. It occurred a few hours after my first dose and then not again.

    Covid had my guts messed up. Fortunately wasn’t puking like some of my fam but one small meal a day and diarrhea for almost a week

    Setup a virtual appointment with my GP and he went ahead and setup a script of paxlovid so I will start that tonight and see how it goes.

    Yep. Don’t be surprised if you get a bounce back positive test a few days after finishing the 5 days of medicine. It’s happening a lot.

    Yea I had a couple bouts yesterday of my stomach messed up. Then started ripping hella farts most of the afternoon. I just figured it was something I ate. Luckily it hasn’t been too bad so far. Most the worst has been in the mornings.

    I have IBS but my bowel movements (while frequent) are somewhat predictable. So when I had excoriating diarrhea at 10pm one night early on with the other initial symptoms I knew I had it

    Seems inevitable I’ll catch it soon, work is making everyone come in at least twice a week. It is what it is but there’s literally no guidance of something as simple as “stay the fuck home if in any way you feel sick we’re not gonna punish you”.

    Yea that was one of the things which got me wondering. So far it’s not terrible.

    Started the paxlovid last night and shortly afterwards I had the weird taste most mention. A good summary of the taste is like eating grapefruit covered in soap. I am already feeling a little better but that might be the cough medicine I also took.

    Anyone have any ideas on how long I am infectious? Staying home this week in full quarantine but trying to figure out when we will know if my wife caught it or might be in the clear…

    My son is a close contact of 2 neighbor boys with covid-19. Second time they've had it in 5 months. They're old enough to be vaccinated, but aren't vaccinated. My son is vaccinated, so we're masking him up and sending him to school unless he shows symptoms. Also, I'm pretty sure he had it last week despite negative tests. A lot of kids, teachers and staff have it in his elementary right now.

    Vaccines should be mandatory.

    the strain 5 months ago is barely cross reactive to the strain now. without vaccination they were set up to get it again.

    Not blaming the researchers, just going to be incredibly depressed if this thing is still evolving so fast that boosters will be much less effective after six months each time.

    vaccines have seemed to hold up decently well to new strains. it's natural infection that has not. you need a vaccine on top of natural infection it seems and that provides the best cross-reactivity.

    I guess I'm speaking in terms of being effective enough to prevent infection/contagiousness, but the only sample size I have is me and a couple of co-workers. The line going up again showing tons of infections, but not a big increase in hospitalizations, is causing tons of people, including doctors, to start doom posting again but that just may be my own bias.

    i would like it to be that effective also. prior infection with prior strains is like 30% for preventing infection. triple vaccination is like 70%. combo is probably even better and likely infection with newest variant is going to be super solid in combo with vaccination against future variants.

    So far the Paxlovid is doing its job. Only peed out of my butt a couple times today. Other than that I feel better. No where close to what others have explained they went through. Worked (from home) both today and yesterday, however my patience was razor thin at times.

    Other than that I am hoping I continue to feel better tomorrow.

    I tried to write a work email when I had it. Sent it to the wrong client with multiple typos. Laid back down and decided I wasn’t going to do that again until I felt better.

    i think the jury is way out. In the UK, at least, they are seeing the hepatitis in both covid seropositive and seronegative kids.

    Well yeah, its a single case report, but the autoimmunity isnt unheard of at all with covid

    Seropositivity for covid also isnt a clear history either, no? Don't a ton of people make no antibodies for with infection?

    Can Pax be prescribed to anybody who tests positive or are there certain risk factors you must have to get a Rx?

    There are risk factors which go into it. If you are a former smoker, high BMI (not just lifting weights) and a few other conditions which will determine eligibility.

    Some doctors are prescribing it to people who are borderline high risk from what I hear.

    I mean, overall mortality risk after severe covid is elevated for months if not forever after severe covid, but we have a pretty well established pattern that the death curve usually trails cases by about 3 weeks, not 3 months.

    Can we please hurry up and get to the fucking endemic part of this story that doesn’t involve multiple surges a year because of mutations and waning immunity
