When it tingles, that's how you know Formula Covid19 is working, reducing embarrassing dandruff.

Can confirm. Tingly feeling in fingers and toes before the other symptoms hit. It's because it attacks your circulation.

After a week and a half I can move my left foot again. Kind of.

This might explain the weird symptoms I had back in mid February. Massive sinus pain, tingling in the left side of my face, left hand, foot, elbow and knee.
Never developed a fever or any other symptoms associated with Covid-19 though.
/still get tingling and loss of sensation in my left thumb sometimes...

And sometimes the symptom is a lack of symptoms.  So to be safe we should execute everybody.  Eliminate the hosts to eliminate the virus.  Nothing barbaric.  We have everybody que up at the local IMAX, They take some painless euthanasia, then they are strapped to a bed, and get to watch some nature shows while classical music is playing as they drift off into the void.  All painless and peaceful.  And no interruptions from roommates.

I would guess that the processing to make the Soylent Green wafers likely kills the virus.

Who needs Soylent?  We are going to have to euthanize everybody.  100% of the population.  They have the symptoms.  Everybody does.  We have to stop the virus, at any cost.  Sure I guess if the ques are too long, and we need to feed people in them, then soylent is a good solution.

not OP. I had a mild case. it wasn't fun. started with a sore throat and dry, painful cough. then a fever and extreme fatigue and loss of smell. because of that everything tasted bad (even water) so I didn't eat for days and slept a lot.  could barely drink and the dehydration caused headaches. not eating made me shaky and weak. there was a disorientation that was scary, it was like going insane.
that lasted about a week and it was bad but I have had worse flu (I had a mild case of COVID - fever never got too high and breathing was never bad enough to worry me). I locked myself in for three weeks after the symptoms went away just to be sure. there is a lingering issue that is a lot like walking pneumonia. for weeks even minimal physical activity just exhausted me. it has been five or six weeks since the symptoms went away and I am getting better (not to be gross but I have a productive cough) but I am still not right.
work has been cool about it and I am working from home. so that helps.

zero of five stars. would not recommend.

This but I never lost sense of smell. And ditto the walking pneumonia thing, I've had that and it felt like a drier version of that. You might have a productive cough now due to post nasal drip, which happened to me once most of the other symptoms resolved itself.

And tingling happens when you aren't getting enough oxygen in the blood which happens when you spend most of the day coughing and trying to catch your breath.

Many people die under triage. The point of triage is fewer deaths than the alternative.

If there had been limitless testing capacity in March and we still refused to test people with a single symptom, then we could blame deaths on that policy. But that's just not the case - there weren't anywhere near enough tests available to test everyone with just a single symptom, so focusing the tests on those with the highest probability of a positive test (those with all of the most common symptoms) is going to maximize the number of infected people who are told to self-isolate, and thus maximize the benefit of that limited testing resource.

I had it and it does do something to nervous system involving the hands. Just read an article on Bloomberg that includes that, something something Guillian-Barre something.

Tested negative yesterday, was no picnic.

So far no laser beam eyes, bulletproof skin, or faster than light running reported as symptoms.

A friend of mine linked this Scientific American article on Facebook. It doesn't definitively answer anything (lots of "We don't know" and "Evidence suggests but we can't be sure", etc.) but it hints at some commonalities among the symptoms (TL;DR; -- COVID may affect blood clotting), and is better than OMG there are all these symptomz!!!

Film Forum in Manhattan has staged full Perceptoseat/theatrical productions of The Tingler.  It's the most fun I've ever had at the movies. William Castle knew how to put on a show.  I highly recommend the full Tingler experience to any and everyone.

Glad you both got over it... but it sucks you had to go through it.

Thanks for sharing your experience.  I'm still wondering about an episode I had the week before Christmas.  My doctor swears it was a bad sinus infection, but I've never been so sick in my life.

Maybe some day we'll have a reliable antibody test and I'll know for sure
