    I lost 5-6 pounds. It's mostly going to be water weight and will come back quickly when you can train again.

    Just be careful with the exercise. It's recommended to take a full 10 days off. There is concern of COVID-19 causing myocarditis and rushing back too quickly could increase the risk of death. See this algorithm: https://cdn.jamanetwork.com/ama/cont...5G5CRDK6RD3PGA from here: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jam...rticle/2772399 There is text for the algorithm and the other ones in the second link.

    (I realize the algorithm is for athletes in competitive sports, should still in theory apply to recreational lifters).

    I've got covid. Tested positive 3 days ago. I'm still training as I've got weights at home im eating in a slight deficit. I'm not very well but I'm not wanting to skip my workouts but if I get much worse then I'll eat at maintenance and and take a week off.

    I don’t want to run my body down but maybe after a few days I should use the home gym

    I started feeling ill a Saturday evening. Sunday morning got tested through work and it came back positive later that day. I felt progressively worse throughout the day. Monday I was terrible. Started feeling somewhat better the next few days (fever broke Tuesday morning). Monday I felt the worst I have felt my entire adult life. For several days I had no appetite and just stayed in bed all day. Never had any serious coughing/breathing/oxygenation issues. A week later I felt better and was out of isolation at that time so I went to Walmart and just walking around my heart rate got well above 100. It was another week after that when I was able to workout with any abnormalities.

    Wow that sounds horrible... and very unfortunate / coincidental given you mentioned you recently got your first vaccine dose.

    In your work (I know you’re an MD) have you been around people you know to have been infected or could likely be infected?

    Hope you get back to 100% soon...

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was positive 1 month ago. I got my vaccine 2 days ago. Still recovering from the vaccine (felt general malaise yesterday but was back to normal by last night except significant left shoulder/axilla pain/tightness with erythema of my left shoulder). Was supposed to lift today but taking 1 more day off to try to let it heal up more.

    I've diagnosed a ton of kids with COVID-19. My record is either 3 in 1 shift. I'm very cautious in the rooms with sick kids. I most likely got it from an asymptomatic family or people lying about symptoms as we do not wear full PPE in non-sick rooms. For example, there was a kid who was supposed to have a well visit, the family denied any symptoms when our front desk asked, and then when he's back with the nurse he reveals he has a runny nose, cough, sore throat, and loss of taste... I told them to leave & reschedule and he subsequently tested positive.

    Ah OK, I got it now.

    It really is an insidious virus in terms of spread... I’m honestly amazed my dad never clearly got it or tested positive given his proximity to sick folks in the ER and doing tests on patients himself
    The power of carbs compels me!

    Got my vaccine about the same time as you. Sore shoulder, sore throat, phlegm and tightness in my jaw. Symptoms decreased by 50% each day after the shot.

    I know someone who recently recovered after being in the hospital in pretty bad condition for 8 days. He was told he should not get the vaccine for at least 90 days (although I don't think he'd in an eligible class even by that time anyway). Not sure if the reasoning for the 90-day period is due to varying approaches in diff countries, but could also just be due to severity of symptoms.

    Total digression here from the OP, but I could really use some advice: I've been sick 10 days ago, two days of high fever (>38deg C), diarrheic, fatigue and elevated RHR. Tested negative and recovered 3 days after it started.

    Shortly after, my daughter (7) came down with a fever, which cleared up after a day, but her voice was totally gone and subsequently she started with a little bit of dry cough which I treated with OTC cough syrup. She's back to normal now.

    Yesterday, the other daughter (also 7) came down with a high fever, which subsides with 200mg ibuprofen, but comes back 4-6hrs later (today a bit longer between). No other symptoms.

    Mrs. the only that's not been sick (yet ). Should I get the twins tested (a mission at this time of year) or should I just let it run its course?

    The forum is glitching so I will respond separately.

    air2fakie:

    In the US it's recommended to wait 90 days simply because it is thought that protection from reinfection lasts 90 days and thus it would be better to allow the limited supply of vaccine to go to those who are more susceptible. It's thought otherwise that once one is fully recovered from acute symptoms it should be ok to get vaccinated and get full protection. Having said that, this certainly has not been studied in individuals who have had significant courses of COVID-19 so if anybody wanted to wait some time I would understand that. In my case my hospital knew I had COVID-19 and still wanted me to get vaccinated so presumably we have enough doses to cover everyone in the various eligible classes.

    There is no advantage to getting them tested from the standpoint of any medications or other treatments/tests they would get. Ideally everyone who is ill will stay isolated in the home for 10 days after symptom onset and until going 24 hours without fever and having improved symptoms. Regarding the Mrs., she should unfortunately quarantine at home for 8 additional days and then another 10-14 days after that (depending on which guideline you look at) as she could still get it at some point and be infectious in that window.

    Rarely kids are getting something called MIS-C which is a big deal; if either of the twins get a fever in the next 2-3 months I would consider having them seen by a doctor, especially if they have any belly pain. At least call your pediatrician and mention they were ill during this time and it's unclear if they had COVID-19 and you were reading online about MIS-C and are curious if you need to do anything.

    Personally I would stop training, and rest until my symptoms were gone. I'd eat at maintenance if possible, but if you can't, what you lose will come back quickly.

    Damn sorry to hear mate, I hope you recover okay.

    I had covid back in May. I had it relatively mild, though I was tired and fatigued - I was not eatting as much as I didn’t leave the house.

    I lost about 2Kg.
