I know there’s several other threads but...

I’m pretty sure I’ve got it. I work at a state college and they announced they are closing face to face classes and pushing everything possible to on line starting Friday.

Let me start by saying I hardly ever get sick and haven't had a flu or fever in 15 years or more till day before yesterday. Started with pain in my feet when standing about a week ago. I haven't felt quite right but couldn’t put my finger on it starting Monday night. Tuesday night going to bed I knew something was up for sure. Slept terrible. Head filled up like a really bad cold. Dry cough, 101.4 fever for 2 days straight. Just the thought of getting out from under the electric blanket made me start shivering. Ate a tiny bag of cheese nips and 3 Vienna sausages in 2 days. I have been drinking Gatorade like a mad man though.

Sent my boss a picture of the thermometer and said I wouldn’t be in. He said you shouldn’t hold the thermometer under hot water and said my water heater should be a minimum of 120. Smart ass.

It’s coming. Get ready.

I hope you go get tested. Don’t wait. They can have results in four hours

#3 1 year ago

Sorry to hear that and best of luck on a speedy recovery even if it's not corona.

#4 1 year ago

Great. Now I'm going to catch Coronavirus on Pinside.

Edit: hope you recover soon OP.

#5 1 year ago

Get tested to confirm, let alone peace of mind.
You sound really healthy otherwise.
Get well soon.

Saw who posted this title and I hafta say.... I came in to see the bottle of beer between boobs

#7 1 year ago

It very well could be it and you'd hiukd treat it as a bug possibility, but I felt exactly the same two months ago and I also had not been sick in a long time. Obviously we live in different times now

Good luck. My wife has some symptoms and we want to be sure. They won’t test unless you prove you were exposed somehow

#9 1 year ago

Michigan claims they will test you if you have the symptoms. We also just got 14.5 million from cdc for testing.

#10 1 year ago

I’m sorry to hear your wife has symptoms. I’m worried about bringing it home to my wife who is auto immune. I deal with the public all day so not sure what I’ll do about work. A simple flu could end up killing her

#11 1 year ago

I grew up in Greensboro, very close to Home. Get your affairs in order so you can rest without worry, I am.

That’s great. Get it for sure if it’s available.

Just saw on Fox News that in Colorado, if you have a dr order you can get tested at a drive through. If your wife has symptoms, get her to the dr

#14 1 year ago

Sorry to here this and hope you get better soon.
My wife is also a teacher and I work in a grocery store so this is something we are concerned about. We both interact with hundreds of people a day so chances of contacting it are higher for us then others.

We called the Dr and asked about the drive thru and they told us to call health dept which was a recording. They are still following last weeks CDC guidelines or something...unless we KNOW she contacted someone no test! Yet she took 2 flights to East coast. Very frustrating. I am left to complain on a pinball website over and over again about it

Wait, wait. A guy in a red hat said that anyone who wants a test, can get a test. And the tests are all perfect.

Ya you should really change the title to "I think I may have....."

You have no idea if you have it or not.

This is the real problem, the lack of tests. It appears to be getting better but until you can get a test immediately on anyone it's a problem.

At least some people have a sense of humor about it.

Why do you think you have coronavirus? Maybe just normal flu??? Unless you have been tested at the hospital, it’s just speculation. Hope you feel better soon

#23 1 year ago

Sounds like every flu I've ever had. Let's not add to the hysteria. Get well.

That’s the guy with the big red shoes too, right?

Sorry to hear about your plight Travish. Maybe it’s just the flu.

Be well sir. Don’t give it to the wife.

Maybe he’s the one trying to sell fake TBL’s.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Regardless of Politics, there arent enough tests to go around.
It will be a while.

Why is it a dumb thread? It's a warning that this shit can hit anyone. You all have no clue how bad this may or may not get.

Really? The title is "I've got corona virus" and the first thing he says in his post is "I'm pretty sure I've got it". That's completely irresponsible.

I woke up with a stuffy nose this morning, should I now go around telling everyone I have the coronavirus?

Someone stating that "I've Got Corona Virus" without an official diagnosis is irresponsible.

Only if you have some strange DNA on your keyboard(s)

#45 1 year ago

plus did we not already have some dude who said he had this? but then disappeared very quickly after he got caught out.
