Saved my ass. I was vaxxed but still hit hard. Within 24 hours I was on the mend

Was running 102 fever and extreme body aches when I had covid. Took paxlovid at breakfast, and by bedtime my fever had broken, and the body aches had almost resolved. After 24 hours, I was feeling pretty good.

Wasn't the experience with omicron generally that it lasted a much shorter time. I had it on new years day and it was brutal for a little under 24 hours then the next day was a lot better.

I only took flu medication due to not being near my doctor. Just wanted to sleep it off

I was sick for about a week before getting it because I was having shortness of breath, got me feeling ok after a couple days, then I felt almost better by the time the course was over. After I finished it I got sick again, less severely for a couple weeks after.

I think it saved me, but covid sucks big time.

So when you tested positive again did you get sick again during the rebound period? I have had mild symptoms so far after testing positive and my doctor said it’s probably not worth it if it’s mild because of the rebound symptoms

It was incredible for me in how quickly it worked. I felt like death with a 103 temp, and by the very first night after taking the first dose, fever broke and I felt better.

Unfortunately for me i developed a rebound case, and popped positive a week after finishing the last dose.
