Covid - 19 roll call

Recommended Posts

We have an in ear one made by Braun,

 

James (youngest) was quite ill as a baby so it's had a lot of use, got to a point where we were at hospital pretty much once a month for an extended stay.

Not cheap btw.

I've got one of the those ear proder thermometers. Pretty good actually.

We got one from the Aldi middle isle a couple of years back, it even tells you your temperature in a funny satnav type voice. We also procured a plastic cover to prevent the grid from getting clogged up with leaves, a pack of 3 ladies seamless high leg briefs (my size not hers) and a SDS drill with various bits.

One of the wives friends’ friends husband died of it tonight. That’s the nearest person to me so far. 
He also had diabetes.

Got an in ear one for the little un in Tesco in the baby aisle

Ah OK. Can’t remember ever buying one for my young un’s but they were young over 20 years ago. Remember as a nipper my mum having a glass one that she stuck under my tongue. Genuinely didn’t have a clue where you got one from 👍

Looking at the social distancing queues outside shops today, online might be the way to order unfortunately

I can't see those selling out, Branded beans were left the other day, no way people will panic buy a 70 quid thermometer, 

 

Wouldn't be without one now though

I know one confirmed case and he's an old geezer who has to have daily dialysis.

Ambulance and first responder car round the corner from the me earlier. 

From a distance, looked like someone was on the pavement.

Could be anything I suppose, but hope they're ok.

24 hours on..

Fever has now subsided, it shot up again in the night to about 39 at one point, chest has been really tight all day but not sore.. By dinner I felt ok to walk around but so weak and dizzy. I can manage about 5 mins stood before i have to sit down, if I go upstairs I'm short of breath by the top. 

Heads still dizzy despite taking painkillers, but I'm also ravenous, I've eaten loads in the 3/4 hours and i'm still hungry, I think my body has just gone to town on whatever it was and it's left me with very little left in the tank. I'm diet controlled due to having most of my thyroid removed, so upto a point I had to force myself to eat. 

 

 

Another day on.. Splitting headache and chest pains before, they appear to have subsided. 

I had to take ibruprofen today as the headache was that bad. 

Temperature has come up again, and it's currently on 37.8, so not raging but clearly back up, 

Hoping it's not a resurgence :(

Keep a check on how much ibruprofen you take - they aren't 100% sure is safe yet.

Without wishing to pre-empt owt it’s not looking good for the MiL. She was in Royal Oldham with pneumonia last week. Tested negative for COVID and sent her home once she was deemed well enough. Unconscious with a temp over 39 this morning. Rushed back in via ambulance. This shit is getting very, very real indeed

If the reports are to be believed you should be avoiding ibuprofen and take paracetamol instead.

They've said if you normally take ibru then to carry in taking it, I'm stopping now.

 

I suffer for migraines and have been on medication for about 3 years for it. 

 

Think its wise to not take any more.

Depends which "reports" you're referring to. Lots of bollocks out there at the moment.

I'm convinced I'm getting over it. Symptoms since sunday. All classic symptoms except sore throat.

Anyone else volunteered for NHS support?
