    I have Covid

    Hi, I tested positive for covid on Tuesday and my symptoms started on Saturday night. Iím really scared as I canít stop coughing, now I can hear a crackling noise after I cough. Itís very faint and feels like itís coming from the back of my throat. However, itís probably coming from my lungs. Really scared Iíll develop pneumonia or end up in hospital. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

    I had a fever for days which disappeared on Tuesday, scared itíll come back.

    I'm so sorry, you must be very scared. If the fever has disappeared I don't think it's very likely you are worse. Keep an eye on that. Otherwise all you can do is rest and drink fluids, just like when we have flu.

    I'll be thinking of you. Are you on your own? x

    So sorry to hear you're sick.
    I had a horrendous cough for 3 weeks, coughing my guts out so bad I hurt my ribs.

    Drs here are suggesting we get that little thing to test your oxygen, they give a number to drop below to head to the hospital. Its really hard to judge by how bad the cough is.

    No, I live with my boyfriend who also has covid. Weíre both just so tired. I keep googling covid and reading about when people are admitted to hospital. This cracking after I cough is seriously making me panic.

    Worried about lungs!

    Iíve recently tested positive for covid and have had a cough for 6 days. I think itís getting better but I can hear crackles when I exhale or cough, they sound like theyíre coming from the back of my throat. I keep googling and it says it could be pneumonia or fluid in the lungs. Iím so scared Iíll have to go to hospital.

    Im so sorry, Louise. I can understand your fears. Have you received any of the vaccines?

    Re: I have Covid

    Hi Louise,

    An oxygen monitor is probably a good idea. I haven't had covid but I've had both bronchitis and pneumonia a few times. For me, it was always very obvious when my lungs weren't clear because my chest would feel really heavy and would burn when I took breaths. Crackling in your throat isn't necessarily that - it could very much just be mucus or fluid in your throat itself.

    I hope you get to feeling better! You and your boyfriend both. A humidifier might help?
