My last post about Covid


So it's been at least a week or something like that. I'm tons better (which is why I ended my extended fast at 3 days), but I did so happen I started getting these weird migraines and temporarily lost my speech because of it. It seems that Covid has affected my Broca's area which is located at the frontal cortex (where the migraines are) and got me into a dysphasia.

But it's all good now and I'm back to normal. It has been impossible doing any work though as we were all quarantined, kids kept me busy for the most part.

So to summarize:

List of symptoms I've had:

  • Nasal and throat congestion with very little cough (no sore throat)
  • Chest pains
  • Fatigue and weakness with dizzy spells
  • Loss of smell (only for a day or 2)
  • Feelings of thirst despite keeping up with hydration
  • Pins and needles feeling in my throat, gone in few minutes after treatment
  • Excruciating muscle and joint pains all over my body (inflammation)
  • Fever and headaches
  • Migraine-like throbbing pains at the front left side of my head and loss of speech.

Remedies used:

(remember, I'm not vaccinated, nor used any modern medication)

  • Extended fast for 3 days (this deserves a post of its own, I've noticed a whole lot more benefits unrelated to the recovery)
  • Lemon salt water for hydration and electrolytes
  • One teaspoon of honey for the needles in throat
  • Staying physically active
