Was it a flare?
« on: December 31, 2021, 08:02:54 AM »
I've not had what I thought of as a flare before, my symptoms have been fairly constant, with a few better days and then some worse ones.

For three days recently I felt achey in hands/arms/legs, no appetite (very unusual for me!), cold even though house was warm, I dug out some fingerless gloves to wear.   Went for a fifteen minute walk and felt as if my legs were full of lead.   Also having night sweats.   It all felt very different to what I'd experienced up to now.   Then yesterday and today I was back to "normal", appetite good etc.   

It wasn't a virus as my husband and I have not been socialising.

After all that ...... a happy New Year to everybody!

I just read the list of covid symptoms and one was night sweats. I do't know how much we have to be out to get the virus. I had to go to the doctor and to the grocery store this week so just said a prayer. So hard to stay away from people. Hope you feel better and stay better. meirish

Thank you for your reply, meirish.   

I haven't seen anyone recently outside my own home.   We get all the groceries delivered.   So am sure on this occasion that it is not Covid.   I think it must have been a flare.

Take care.
