Currently in hospital with pneumonia.Taken in v early Tuesday morning, breathing difficulties. Defo not covid - had the test.  Elected voluntarily to go home tonight/tomorrow morning with nebuliser, they could no doubt use the bed/have it ready for someone in a much worse state than me.  More deets when I'm home if interested.

Mrs Alberon has started running a temperature today and is feeling under the weather. We weren't planning to go anywhere or see anyone over the weekend so we'll see what happens, but it could be the case we're going to have to self-isolate for a couple of weeks.

Yeah, an..."interesting" week to be sure.  Started towards the end of last week - started feeling bloated even when I hadn't yet eaten anything, and then beginning Saturday night my breathing got more laboured (although I wouldn't say I was struggling to breathe at that point - that would be overstating it).  I didn't even link it to a cold, let alone corona, as I didn't have a cough, didn't have a temperature, no aches or pains and didn't even feel like I was coming down with a mild cold.  Anyway, I put up with it over Sunday and at work on Monday, and then I woke up late Monday night (having struggled to get off to sleep as by then I felt like I'd eaten three full roasts back to back) barely able to breathe.  REALLY scary.  Had to wake up Mrs Nose who phoned 999 and they turned up in about 13/14 minutes.  They quickly stuck me on a nebuliser (which eased it all in about a minute and I could breathe again - NEVER felt so relieved in all my life) and did prelim corona checks.  They suggested it wasn't covid (as I didn't think it was), but as there was clearly fluid in my lungs and I was struggling to breathe unassisted they took me straight into the RUH in Bath and I was quickly stuck in isolation (which was actually just a single room with one bed - all the "pods" were already full).  They did the swab for the test and when that came back negative Wednesday night they took me for a chest x-ray, which confirmed pneumonia (albeit without some of the typical pneumonia symptoms).  I now have "significant" scarring on my lungs, so significant I'm told that they won't fully heal, which "may" (read "probably") leave with me late on-set asthma.  Anyway, I'd been on salbutamol pretty much as soon as the paramedics turned up until Wednesday night.  By Thursday late morning I was still breathing okay and otherwise felt okay, so I asked about going home as I was taking up a whole room, let alone a bed.  I spoke to a specialist who said under normal circumstances she wouldn't have recommended it, but as my recovery was excellent she was happy to let me go with a nebuliser tank full of salbutamol, which I should only use in an emergency, and a prescription for a blue Ventolin (which I picked up earlier today).  The nebuliser remains unused.  Me and Mrs Nose have got to monitor the situation, but they've told me I basically have to isolate myself for the next six weeks, to recover from the pneumonia and protect me rather than anyone else (obviously I'm particularly susceptible to all sorts of infections right now, not just corona).

It's little Nose I felt most bad for - she woke up with all the kerfuffle when the paramedics got here and was terrified.  Obviously she didn't really understand what was going on and really thought I was going to die.  Fortunately Mrs Nose was quite stoic and kept it all together, and made little Nose do her last few days at school.

As for tea and toast - for some reason I wasn't allowed any hot drinks and could only drink water, but I did have a supply of toast and fruit (I never felt like any big food so refused main meals, which I know I shouldn't have done, but I just couldn't face it).

But yeah - I'm locked up at home now with a laptop and a whole stack of DVDs, blu rays, books and my MP3 player for the next 6 weeks, and somehow have to avoid Mrs Nose and little Nose.  Fun times.

I reckon I've got (had?) it - started with a sore throat around Wednesday last week, then I've had a tickly cough since about Friday and a high-ish temperature. It was a pretty consistent 38 yesterday, down to 37.7 as of this morning.

The only thing is the cough isn't dry, so it could well be just a cold.

Anyway I'm feeling better today so hopefully whatever it is is on the wane.

I had something similar- sore throat, swollen glands like golf balls in my throat, a bit of sneezing and a cough, but not a dry one. No fever and no breathing difficulties, and like you I feel fine now. Someone at werk had a similar thing and it looks like it was just a cold going round.

My girlfriend and my brother both had this, cleared up for both no corona

Thanks for the good wishes all.


Don't be a twat and die from pneumonia now SNG. Have some pride.

Typical isn't it - if I die of pneumonia now, I'd be a mere footnote.  "Also ran during the coronavirus crisis..."



I forgot to mention above just how fucking amazing the paramedics, doctors and nurses were.  Sure, I had to wait quite a long time for things, but they were absolutely snowed under (many many people with much worse things going on than me, and let's not forget there are still accidents, cancers, heart attacks etc etc that they have to deal with as well), but still made sure I was as comfortable as I could possibly be.  I felt mega guilty cos I have no doubt that in some other words there were probably people on beds in corridors.

But the paramedics were especially great - they spent a LOT of time with me and ignored my manly "I'm fine, go and treat someone else" comments.  I've already got their details so I can get them something (a few bottles of wine or something), and I'm sending a new microwave and kettle to the staff kitchen for the ward I was on, as they were both 30-odd years old and creaking at the seams.  A pathetically small gesture in the scheme of things, but I wanted to do something, especially as nurses and paramedics seem to be getting a particularly harsh time from some people at the moment, which I find VERY weird and not a little concerning.

But I have to say that, despite the breathing problems the other day being mega scary, I'm otherwise okay.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about the next few months, being susceptible and that, and also more long term with the possible-probable asthma - I went 39 years with no serious health complaints, and then two years ago I got proper flu with an infection in both ears that left me with permanent hearing damage (I'm not deaf, but in certain situations I completely lose certain frequencies), and now pneumonia that's probably left me with asthma. 

But I know loads of people have asthma and they live a normal life, so I'm going to remain positive and keep telling myself however bad I think things are for me, there's a shit load of peeps out there (and here on CaB) that have it much worse. 

Note to self - don't be a cunt, and carry on, etc.

These intermittent and reoccurring symptoms are weird. A lot of people have had them. Perhaps, yes, just normal seasonal things - but I never get seasonal things. Maybe a mutant COVID beta-testing, mutating, alpha-testing

SHIT BAD LUNGS. Get well soon, mate. Lungs no doubt full of spunk and fanny batter from all those orgies you've allegedly not been to.

I've had a tight chest now for about a fortnight. Occasional cold symptoms. No temperature at all. Noticed a bit of bloating like SGN had, but I have IBS, so my guts are all over the place at the best of times, plus it feels unlikely I'd get pneumonia. Probably. Might speak to my GP via the online service, but I dunno. Feels like they've got enough going on without me piping up about what will inevitably be nothing. Fucks sake.

11. Tight chest and coughing spells

Another of the first symptoms of Coronavirus to be identified, was a tight chest and persistent cough.

Many scientists and health professionals have suggested that the water droplets passed through a cough or sneeze are the main cause of the virus spreading, which is why they have advised the entire population to wash their hands, cough and sneeze into a flexed elbow and use tissues wherever possible.

Having these symptoms on their own has meant that some people with the virus have not considered the possibility that they may have COVID-19.

Carl Goldman from Santa Clarita, who was on board the Diamond Princess cruise ship and later tested positive for coronavirus, said the virus 'hasn't been that bad'.

In an article for The Washington Post, he explained that he developed a fever and 'a bit of a cough' during his flight back to America and was quarantined on his return.

"I am in my late 60s, and the sickest I’ve ever been was when I had bronchitis several years ago. That laid me out for a few days," he said.

"This has been much easier: no chills, no body aches. I breathe easily, and I don’t have a stuffy nose.

"My chest feels tight, and I have coughing spells.

"If I were at home with similar symptoms, I probably would have gone to work as usual."

His treatment, he said, "consisted of what felt like gallons and gallons of Gatorade".

All the best

My office made me go to a virtual consultation with a doctor. They’re not gonna send me for COVID-19 testing (because what is point), but did tell me to fully self-quarantine for 7 days (not just social isolating or whatever) and as a bonus gave me a 5 day sick note.

I’m an idiot workaholic so probably won’t use it especially as I’m working from home, but took the rest of today off at least. I made a fort out of sofa cushions and have been jumping around on it with Ferris Jr so it’s been nice.
