Not too bad. Man, this crap drags on. Lots of loose chest congestion with coughing, and sleeping in bouts.

❤🙏🌟🕯

@CDuBois Feel better. It does drag on but you’ll be better and have all those wonderful antibodies! Hugs and love!

It does drag on, so yesterday I made a decision cuz I'm done with this RONA! Last evening I took and the hubby a 3mg Ivermectin with dinner. This morning my sinus issues basically gone and my taste & smell returned 100%. This evening we took another, just cuz they say you should for three days.

@CDuBois @pamby1

@Bleukitty @Bakerfiend @pamby1

I think I'll take some Ivermectin tonight and see if it helps.
This started December 26th, and I'm done!!

Meanwhile, I have not been sick in years.

@CDuBois You are not alone. My cough is still lingering and we got it first week of December. I’m waiting on some IVM and I’m gonna give that a try. I’ve been thinking about trying the onion syrup.

My smell and taste totally returned. After one 3mg dose last evening. Sinuses about 90%. I got excited when I tasted a potato chip at lunch, I felt silly.

@CDuBois @Bakerfiend @pamby1

@pamby1

I really missed them, such an awful thing to go through. No appetite, yet hungry — sucks!

@ConnieinVA @CDuBois @Bakerfiend

@Bakerfiend

Did you only eat crackers for two weeks because you were nauseous, or because without the sense of smell or taste you just weren't interested in food?
Asking for my Dad who is on day 4 of not eating anything. Says the smell of food makes him nauseous. He doesn't feel bad any other way - like the sore throat is gone, no fever and so on, but this is lingering.

@Bleukitty @pamby1 @ConnieinVA @CDuBois

@SweetIceTea @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1 @ConnieinVA @CDuBois

Someine suggested smoothies. Put them in a lidded cup. He doesn't have to see the food or smell it. They can be very nutritious. It can last for weeks to months.

He will need to start eating sooner than he's going to get his sense of smell/taste back.

@CDuBois @Katrina_Fights

Does anyone have an idea how long this nausea can last? @rosemaxx7 said yesterday that her son has been this way 15 days.
I was wondering what length of time others have had it.

@rosemaxx7

Smell does impact appetite and the desire to eat, it happened to me. I ate things just to eat, peanut butter crackers was the main thing.

@SweetIceTea @CDuBois @Katrina_Fights @Bakerfiend @pamby1 @ConnieinVA

@Bleukitty I only ate a cup of chicken soup a day for over 3 weeks. I only lost my sense of smell but I still had absolutely now appetite. @rosemaxx7 @SweetIceTea @CDuBois @Katrina_Fights @Bakerfiend @pamby1 @ConnieinVA

@oystergirl @Bleukitty @rosemaxx7 @CDuBois @Katrina_Fights

Thank you all for your comments. I sent Daddy & Mama a link to this conversation. Daddy messaged me back saying he had read them all.

@Bakerfiend @pamby1 @ConnieinVA

@SweetIceTea @CDuBois @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1 @ConnieinVA

Weeks. His best chance for beating the nausea is to limit his food intake to bland food.

I was reading just yesterday a person could only eat 'white' food.

If you've ever had pregnancy nausea - it's a lot like that as far as triggered by smells...only,

it's worse because no taste means you're relying solely on texture and we find out - there's a lot of food with lousy texture but great taste.

@Katrina_Fights This was exactly my experience. Once I lost taste/smell, the texture was what made all the food I tried to eat offputting. Couldn’t eat more than a few bites.

@SweetIceTea @CDuBois @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1

@ConnieinVA

Do you remember how long it lasted?
Did you think it just 'ran its course' or did you feel like you took something that brought it to an end?

@Katrina_Fights @CDuBois @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1

@SweetIceTea
My son mssg he thinks he is coming out of it
after 17 days.
He is 6'5" and usually 270 lbs, with no excess fat, just muscle.
When a person this size can't eat, I think it's harder on them, as it takes so much more fuel to run their body than someone tiny.
It may have a lot to do with why he was hit so hard, because he was not able to eat or drink.
My older son could, he had different symptoms & recovered sooner.
@ConnieinVA @Katrina_Fights @CDuBois @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1

@rosemaxx7

Oh that is wonderful.
I'm so happy for him and you.
I'll be praying that he recovers his strength quickly and fully.
Thank you for the update.

@ConnieinVA @Katrina_Fights @CDuBois @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1

@SweetIceTea I lost smell/taste around day 5 & it only started to come back after a few days of eating teaspoons of horseradish. My husband lost his a day before I did & his took longer to come back because he didn’t want to eat that. His lasted probably about a week or so longer than mine. But his did come back on it’s own. I’d say his lasted a total of maybe 3 weeks before he said he could really taste/smell everything.

@Katrina_Fights @CDuBois @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1

@ConnieinVA

Thank you Connie.
It's really something all the weird things these 'bugs' are doing to people. What strange affects.

@Katrina_Fights @CDuBois @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1

@SweetIceTea

I would suggest inflammation in the ear canals. I took and extra Ivermectin to finish clearing mine out, it worked.

@CDuBois @Katrina_Fights @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @pamby1 @ConnieinVA

@Bleukitty

That makes sense. I was in a car wreck years ago, and the crystals in my ears were dislodged. Nausea and accute Meniers. It was awful.
PT for three months.
I had no idea how much can be affected by the ears.

@SweetIceTea @Katrina_Fights @rosemaxx7 @Bakerfiend @pamby1 @ConnieinVA

@SweetIceTea @Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1 @ConnieinVA @CDuBois

When his senses start coming back and he says things taste/smell different - believe him. It really messes with the olfactory neural brain connections.

Some get eroded by this virus & the brain compensates by creating new ones. The problem happens when the new connections are different than the original ones. There is an industry springing up to retrain smell and taste based on this damage when it affects prior favorite foods

@Katrina_Fights

The loss of taste and smell is what I've heard so many people discuss, but the flat out nausea caused by the smell of food is a symptom I didn't remember hearing about till this with Daddy.

@Bakerfiend @Bleukitty @pamby1 @ConnieinVA @CDuBois

@Bleukitty So glad Kitty. I’ve been faithfully taking quercetin and all my other supplements. But, the cough. It’s not all the time mostly when I wake up but it is annoying during the day until I can clear it.

@ConnieinVA

Hubby has the same issue, I haven't heard him coughing today...🤗 I never got the cough, just tore up my sinuses!

@ConnieinVA

Great! I bet you the Ivermectin will help you, 🤗💕

@ConnieinVA @Bleukitty

Have you tried Benadryl? I read today that Benadryl works.

@Bakerfiend Hi Selah! Are you asking about the onion syrup? If so, I found a recipe for a syrup that has a base of onions and it’s suppose to be really good for a cough. @oystergirl has also mentioned using it. Not sure if the recipe below is same as OG’s.

Here is one I was looking at:
peoplespharmacy.com/articles/h

@ConnieinVA @Bakerfiend Take one large onion and peel and score deeply but do not chop. Place in pan and cover with water. Add in 1/4 tsp of cayenne and a generous amount of pumpkin pie spice (ginger, cinammon, allspice, nutmeg) bring to a boil. Stir and turn heat down half way and cook until onion is transparent and falling apart. Allow to cool and strain. Refrigerate. Start with 2 shot glasses and then use 1 shot glass every hour. Can add honey. Works like a charm!

@ConnieinVA @oystergirl Thank you and Oyster just saw this post. G-d Bless and hope everyone feeling better. Going to make some in the morning
Hugs

@oystergirl @ConnieinVA I have many friends triple vaxxed very sick now and one friend’s hubby really has a bad cough. THANK YOU! Wind is howling and my vibrations off the chart. Hard to sleep.

@Bakerfiend @ConnieinVA Big hugs. Another great cough stopper is Bromelian enzyme or pineapple juice. It digests mucous!
