I don’t think any of the test Iowa sites here are offering the saliva tests.I developed some kind of cold/sinus infection a little over 2 weeks ago so I went to a local free National Guard testing site, stood in the Texas sun for about an hour and 20 minutes, another 30 minutes inside, and then got tested. Saliva sample. Results 2 days later were negative.
I tested last month and was negative. I have a watch that reads my O2 levels and didn't realize that is considered low. May need to get tested againI got tested weekly for work. For 9 weeks I tested negative. On June 16 I tested positive. I had no symptoms when I tested positive. A day later I was very fatigued and my legs/hips ached. It was like I decided to start running 10 miles a day. 3 days after my test I lost all sense of smell and taste. Taste came back slowly over a few days. My sense of smell is still diminished.
At no time did I have any cold/flu like symptoms. My blood O2 levels did drop for about 3 days. It stayed as low as 92% for a couple days and then was back to normal.
I am still fighting the fatigue. I get tired very easily. I take Vitamin D to reduce the time for the fatigue to go away. My doctor said it’s not uncommon to experience fatigue for 2-4 weeks after symptoms. I’m at about 3 weeks now and feeling great except I need a couple naps.
At least in Arizona they are seeing less fevers and more people complaining of muscle pain, headaches, and extreme fatigue. Loss of taste and smell too.
For this poll I have no idea how to vote.
I have 9 negative tests and 1 positive.
I had to have both nostrils. I was crying when it was all done. Honestly, was a little pissed it was negative, I dont want to take that test again.So it wasn't just the person I had do it. Thought I just got the most sadistic health care worker in the country. I swear he hit my brain.
