  • My Take says:

    only symptom I have is not being able to smell and I did not recover from that yet

    • tea says:

      Do something proactive besides davening which is the best thing to do!
      Take a cup of hot water and put in some ground ginger powder, ground cinnamon, ground cloves and ground cardamom. Let it sit for two to three minutes and drink slowly. Make a shehakol on water first, and then drink this tea. Refuah shelaima bkarov! (If you don’t have all four items, use what you do have.) Vitamin C is also good to add. I use about 1/8 tsp in a cup of water (I use buffered C crystals by Bluebonnet.)
      You can check with your doctor before using any of these products to make sure they are safe for you.

  • No Symptoms B"H says:

    Why not include a poll option for those who don’t have symptoms?
    Not having a poll option for ones situation will tempt some to click a random option, thus resulting in inaccurate poll results.

  • Miriam says:

    My daughter and several of her friends are still not able to smell – did anyone recover their smelling abilities?

  • Ezriel says:

    People who recovered
    Please share your experience so others will know what to expect.

  • Stomach issues says:

    I have tested positive and one of the biggest symptoms I have is a nasty stomach virus making me constantly run to the bathroom. I don’t usually post such graphic details but due to the situation I am.
    Anyone else have these symptoms and more importantly, any suggestions what to do about it?
    Thanks so much in advance

  • My Experience says:

    We had someone in our home on purim but they were not displaying symptoms.( they did not find out till a week later) 2 Days after exposure I had chest tightening slept it off overnight. 3rd day after exposure no symptoms. Day 4-10 just a little tired and therefore decided that it was not it. NO Fever. Day 12-13 had massive headache later in the day and lost sense of smell and taste I suspect that this is corona.I did not test as we are not at risk. We are quarantined. Day 14- taste is coming back partly but still cannot smell. Did not feel weak at any time except for day 2 was little pain in chest…NO Bough, No sneezing To be continued..

    One week ago I thought this whole thing was a joke!
    Now, after 4 days of high fever and very little energy to even move around, I must admit this is the worst “flu” I ever had!!! I did lost taste and smell over last few days. B”H no cough, no runny nose, no sore throat. My stomach was to so happy a day or two before fever started. Still waiting for fever to brake.
    In my experience sweet drinks like OJ make my feel worse.
    Hot tea is big winner.
    The best side effect so far is weight loss of at least 1 lb per day.

    My husband came down with aches pounding head ace lost of taste Fever.very weak.. I placed a slice onion on the heel of his foot with a sock over it. For about 5 days. Helps the ear ace headache and fever. His fever was gone after three days I also place cut up onion near his bed. It sunction out the bacteria. I did that in my kids room as kids are all one cought the virus.. Works wonders. Change the onion every three days Drank alot of hot water with lemon and honey. A very good tea called cold season yogi company. Has ginger cloves cardamon cinnamon. Important ingredient that’s helps amazing..Very important that your mouth doesn’t stay dried..he did that for a week. What works amazing which some ppl have a hard time is a garlic drink. You peel a whole knob of garlic with plastic knife or fingers. Slice them in half with a plastic knife. Not metal. Put it in a glass or plastic cup and pour boiling hot water. Fill Half a cup. Seal it well with a sandwich bag or saran wrap. Let it sit for an hour or more.first day you take 3 TB three times a day. Second third forth day its 1 TB three times a day.swallow garlic drink first and then drink juice to take the bad taste out of your works wonders.
    The second day you will feel a difference. Chicken soup is very good. Add small piece of ginger in your chicken soup.
    Its 8 days. Hes almost back to himself bh. Just a slight cough.yes he did feel chest pain but by drinking this garlic drink it helped tremendously.its wonders! can rub vapo cough on your chest. That has helped very much for him as well with his cough.
