My Poor Body

How much pain can a body keep going trough ? This CoVid has hit me so hard.

Day 3 of Paxlovid. The high temperatures of 102 have decreased to 99. Extreme fatigue stays. Constant Coughing. The pulse ox says O2 is good. Severe diarrhea not sure if it’s from the covid or the medication. Severe nausea. Vomiting. Body aches that don’t quit. No appetite. Awful metallic taste in my throat right after I take the pills. The metallic feeling/taste lasts for hours and hours.

Crying a lot. Trying to stay awake. Seems like sleeping 17 hours each day isn’t good.

So exhausted from this.

Each day a bit better. Praying for a better day tomorrow.

I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.

  1. I had covid in April. Wouldn’t you know, I was in Az so away from my regular dr but I had connected with a new rheum who prescribed the paxlovid.
    Fever, very sore throat, congested nose and throat. Very exhausted. Took Paxlovid which gave me stomach issues at first and then my mouth tasted and felt so awful I couldn’t eat or sleep! Paxlovid did knock everything back after a few days but a week later it all resurfaced. Not quite as bad, but I tested positive with an antigen test for an entire month. It took about 8 weeks total for the sire trust and fatigue to improve significantly but it eventually did. Rest, eat well, hydrate, take care of yourself.

    My rheum told me to go off Kineret until I had no symptoms. I was off for an entire month and had no Stills symptoms. My blood work was not good though so I had to restart.

    • Thank you for your comment. I have heard of the rebound affect of Paxlovid. I pray it doesn’t happen to me. I’ve been through so much. Covid hit me so hard. It’s been 5 days now that Ive been off the Paxlovid. It was so awful being on it. I had severe stomach distress, nausea, diarrhea, sour stomach constantly, zero appetite. And the metallic taste in my mouth was like I had rusty nails in my mouth 24/7. I am grateful it knocked the symptoms down. Now I’m just SO tired all the time. I have tested negative, and I try to go about a somewhat normal routine, but I need to sleep each day a couple hours.
      I did start with a sore throat this evening. I hope and pray it’s just allergies.

      I hope you are feeling better now and back to a normal daily routine.
