One time all my skin pores started seeping salt water uncontrollably. That aint normal.

It's not the COVID you need to worry about, it's the increased risk of heart attack and stroke!

I had pretty severe symptoms and I feel like an invalid now. My heart flutters, I'm suddenly out of breath for no reason. I've been trying to exercise, but I have a shiatty job and I am so tired. I'm getting too old for this shiat.

"MRI-a costly and sparingly used imaging technology"

Bullshiat, do you know how many of them I've personally had?  A LOT.  And they cost almost nothing outside the US.

"he evidence is still mostly anecdotal."

Basically, they have no control group and didn't do a proper study.  And whoever wrote this has never had to see a doctor in their life apparently or they'd probably have had an MRI or two.  Fear certainly puts eyes on print, doesn't it.

The machine itself is expensive.

I've had a few, here they're free. But since the local hospital doesn't have many, there's a queue for non-essential scans.

Here in the USA, there's this myth that MRIs are incredibly expensive, largely perpetuated by the for-profit hospital and insurance company cartels. The machine itself is paid off quickly, due to the high prices charged by the hospital and the never-ending queue of patients getting scanned. The true cost of each scan is relatively low. They are money printing machines for hospital owners.
