I hope none of you are experiencing covid symptoms. However, especially if you are, take Vitamins B12, C, D, Zinc & a multi-vitamin. Do research on which types have the best bioavailability for you. Drink Pedialyte AdvancedCare+ & if you can, Gatorade, & LOTS of water...
It helps to drink chicken broth, take Tylenol NOT ibuprofen, and take natural supplements which have anti inflammatory properties good for the lungs such as ginger, turmeric and echinacea. Low Dose (81mg) Bayer Aspirin helps if you start feeling symptoms of bad circulation...
For a cough, Robitussin CF is the best, but be careful because it also has acetaminophen like Tylenol and you shouldn’t take them together. If you’re bad enough to go to urgent care, Benzonatate with the Robitussin helps for the cough, a Z-pak did help with the pneumonia...
If you start to have trouble breathing with chest tightness, buy a decent O2 meter, you might need a week of methylprednisolone and an inhaler of symbicort (inhalation vapor of budesonide and albuterol work the best, but if you could easily infect others who live with you)...
If your O2 drops below 94, your fever lasts more than 2 days at higher than 101, your cough is constant, you have unbearable chest tightness and nausea preventing your body from staying hydrated, it’s time to go to the hospital...
Hopefully by this point you will have already been tested but they will test you again. If your chest tightness is unbearable, you might need decadron not prednisone, but since there’s a shortage of remdesivir and plasma, you will only be given this if you are extremely critical.
It helps to do breathing exercises laying on your stomach, inhale and hold for 5 seconds exhale slowly, repeat 5-10 times, at least 3 times a day...
If at the hospital, you might need oxygen & if nauseous, you might need anti-nausea meds. If they believe it’s necessary, you might need fluids & if you are admitted, they will give you steroids, anticoagulants, cough meds, anti-nausea meds & you can ask to take your vitamins...
They might give you a breathing treatment and maybe fluids. You will know if you have pneumonia if they find it in an x-ray and even a CT scan. Taking a short run of anticoagulants after the hospital is a good idea and if not, Low Dose Aspirin every day is good...
A methylprednisolone pack is good to wean off of anti-inflammatory drugs because you shouldn’t be on that regularly and stop all at once. Drink Lots of water, nutritious foods and vitamins which strengthen your immune system, and rest...
We will hopefully have a vaccine soon and believe it or not, staying positive does help. I am a #covidsurvivor and a #LongHauler and these are the things that have worked for many of us. Stay strong, stay safe, use PPE, social distance. My prayers go out to you all.❤️🙏🏼❤️💕💗
