Bhai logs from today morning I lost smell in all products , even I could not smell coffee or haldi , but my taste buds are ok I can feel sweet bitter hot cold , no other symptom no fever no body aches only feeling lathargic.
Is this an early signs of covid ? If yes by what time I can expect other symptoms to pop up and what should I do to keep myself least effected or to recover as early as possible.
I took covid-shield shot on 11 of this month besides that I have not gone out from home and have no exposure to any one expect family members.

Isolated , taking steam 2 time , having coronil , walking as usual eating healthy with lots of fluids

As per some experiences from some of my contacts, they lost the taste too completely. So I guess it’s not corona. In any case do watch out for any breathlessness feeling or if you have oximeter, keep checking oxygen levels

Protocol is not to panic.

Since you have recently taken the vaccine shot, I think you should continue staying safe for now. And if possible do get a test done.

As per my personal experience, you are most probably infected. we do not lose complete smell from common cold. As for symptom, Its different for everyone. I was tested positive in first wave and lost smell, taste as well as had slight fever.

Note: Get tested and act accordingly.

I too had a cold a couple of weeks back. The cold was really severe. I had taken first dose of vaccine in mid of feb. Awaiting for the second one. But after that cold, till now i have lost the sense of smell (mostly) ( if there is a very strong smell then i can feel otherwise cannot). The cold is gone but still the loss of smell is there.

First, isolate yourself.

Only a test can confirm if you’re infected. Don’t stress. Keep yourself hydrated & rest. Monitor your oxygen level.

Koi protocol nai h.
If you feeling everything is good then just isolate yourself.
Chances are your immunity is good.
Enjoy the quarantine period. Don’t worry.

Do you cough?
My suggestion, get tested. Assume you have it, and isolate.
It’s better to miss a day or two, than to around and spread it by mistakenly.

Bhai

Firstly – don’t worry and no need to panic

Now – talking about COVID-19 +ve, i think you may be +ve (Hope not to be)
Why – Since you got your first dose of vaccine that’s why you are not generating any severe symptoms but showing a symptom i.e. (loss of smell)

My suggestion is first isolate yourself, and do something like you must be getting some forwards on whatsapp. If you have not received any i can share here some of good of them here.

If you can’t get the taste of anything and the smelling sense is also lost then it’s COVID. if COVID then this will continue for 30 or more days. I myself faced this for more than 60 days, it was very worst at some moment I also felt it is permanent.

Loss of smell is the most trustworthy signal of Covid, even more reliable than than RTPCR which is giving wrong results in some cases, according to presentation given by AIIMS director to Health ministry. Better book an RTPCR test immediately, because there is a waiting of at least 5 days in Delhi, result should come in 3 days. In my area results of Covid ard awaiting for almost 6-7 days.

Situation is going to deteriorate in near future, better be prepared. Online RTPCR test booking has disappeared, Covid medicine is no longer available on any online site.

dont wait for anything bad to happen. most people lost there life were waiting for symptoms or rtpcr report.

do 3 blood test turant 3 turant lal path charhes 750, thyro care 500 for all 3 which are crp, esr and cbc. if crp is higher than say 4-5 and you have no prior inflammatory issue like back pain, arthiritis etc, if your esr is not 10 but above say 15 or worse, double you age, if lympho in cbc is at low level start your mrdicines.

3 tablets, ivermectin 12mg 5 days – kuch nahi nikla to pet ke keede maar degi
doxy 100 10 days twice – kuch nahi hoga to shareer ko 10 din subah shaam achhi khasi antibiotics mil jayingi
zinc 50 10 days – kuch nahi mila to zinc ki saal bhar ki supply poori samjho.

oximeter leke, theromometer leke reading lo, 6 minutes chalke dekho, oxygen 4% se kam, bukhaar 101 ya jayda aur oximeter mein heart rate bahut badhke aaye, saans lene mein problem aane lage lekin ocimeter mein 98-99 ke oygen dikhe samjho maamla gadbad hai.

Kuch nahin, bhaiya ji likhe hain.. “isolate raho, luke warm water se gargle karte raho, O2 levels monitor karo, bukhar aane par paracetamol lo aur infections ke symptoms dikhe to doctor ke paas jao.”

Get well soon! innocent

Antibiotics is not a joke. You are suggesting antibiotics as if it’s coconut water.
