Woke up yesterday with an itchy throat. Figured out it was seasonal allergies after it cleared up when getting ready, but hit me again a little when outside as I stared at my black car that turned green.
I am confident I have this virus.. Been having breathing issues.

I either try to ride it out isolated at home.. Or call for hospital help.

I had one very mild bone ache over a week ago, and the occasional shortness of breath. Fatigue. Not sure if I have a temperature because the thermometer I ordered hasn't arrived yet, but otherwise I feel fine. My biggest exposure risk was two weekends ago, so I'm hoping to get past that without anything serious.

CDC says to get help if you experience an emergency. If your symptoms get worse, go for it.

I suggest taking it real easy for the next few days, I heard that breathing the vapors from hot water can help.

Take the time to relax, eat immune-boosting foods, etc. Avoid alcohol.

I couldn't breath properly tonight man, had to take deep breaths and it lasted about 3 hours.

I've seen YouTube videos of some people who just stayed at home and rode it out, and now are better.

The other option is Try get to the hospital

I had flu like symptoms (fever, shortness of breath, chest burning) for a week now and finally went in to get tested on Wednesday. The turning point was shortness of breath. It was a smart decision because I had an upper respiratory tract infection and was given Zithromax and can breath better now. My test results won’t come in for a few days but I feel 100% recovered already.

If you have doubts, go see a medical provider right away. They will do more than just test for the Coronavirus. They will also give you the flu test and do chest X-rays to check for pneumonia and other bacterial infections. No point laboring at home trying to diagnose yourself if you have medical insurance.

Telemedicine has really taken off during this pandemic. You can try Teledoc, or Dr On Demand.

Or your city might have a few hospitals offering it. I know my city literally has a 5 minute wait for telemedicine sessions provided by a major hospital.

You're saying one of the richest countries on earth doesn't have sh1t? Pretty much every developed country has telemedicine nowadays.
Just try harder and stop the victim mentality.
Shortness of breath is not to take lightly but creating a thread like this tells me you're the anxiety kind of person and people like that are prone to make things worse than they really are just because their minds are playing tricks on them, zekko nailed it.

If it's already in your chest, see a doctor.

Infections rarely start in the chest, though, and if you can stop them while they're still in the head, you can cut them short, and avoid a lot of misery.

I learned a trick for that, from a biochemist friend of mine, years ago:

at the start of the cold/flu, when you still have the sore throat, stuffy nose, fever, and whatever other head symptoms, douse your inner ears with alcohol(you can pour it in periodically, during the day, and sleep with alcohol soaked cotton balls in your ears, at night),

gargle with peroxide(if your mouth/throat is raw, you can treat it with mouthfuls of honey, which also has antibiotic/antiviral/anti-inflammatory properties; in fact, ancient Egyptians used honey like we use Neosporin),

and keep your nasal passages clear(i use an aloe saline spray to help dilute and express congestion); try to avoid swallowing(and possibly aspirating) the nasal congestion, to help prevent the spread of infection to more difficult to treat areas.

This is my non-medical advice to anyone dealing with this disease at home. Again, if it's already in your lungs, see a doctor, ASAP.

If anyone does get sick and tests positive, I bet their minds start playing tricks on them.
Like they might think they're sicker than they really are, even if they just have a mild case of it.
Anxiety will do that.
Most common reaction to this virus is no reaction.

Second most common reaction is mild reaction.

The ICU cases and deaths that make the hysterical news are the least common reactions, by far.

Maybe, i should correct myself, though, because it appears PANIC is by far the most common "PAN-dem-IC" reaction.

I’ll be 100% honest here. I believe I already had it back in January. This was WAY before the crazy **** started happening. I was wrecked for two weeks straight. Symptoms all the same. Doc said it was a sinus infection/upper respiratory. I felt it was more than that due to my symptoms. Symptoms were: sore throat, phlegm drip, green and bloody snot/chest congestion, fever of 102.6 (mind you I was taking Tylenol), had a tough time breathing especially at night laying down(had to be propped up), body aches were horrible.

Npr interviewed a guy with it. He said he could barely get off the couch for 3 weeks, was very tired all the time.

I wonder if I had it too during the same period. Same symptoms but I didn't seem to have a fever, at least during the time that I checked. I wish I could know if I had it or not.
