Default covid 19

Does anyone know what the effects on P/N and having covid 19 would be or any info if you were unfortunate to get it. I know that anything, like colds flu seem to bring out more flares and symptoms on my body during the process. Just wondering.

OP: Don't know, do you have Covid? I had a "flair" last night and I know it' s because I ate some foods about 8:30PM that was tasty, an great dip, but know it has plenty of preservatives and sugars and milk and other stuff in it that could cause the flair, eating later at night, not a good thing....

I take a good amount of immune system builders and don't get colds etc....

Hi ,No I have been trying to be careful and so far been very lucky not to get it. But I do know what you mean by what you eat and what is in it can cause you alot of issues with flares I surely get that. Just my body processing the food sometimes stresses me into a flare[weird]. I am just worried that if it does happen hopefully not] how it could affect the body with someone with this medical issue.

Dexter454, you can get tested for infection with Covid-19, which is free in most countries.

There is no evidence that what you eat has anything to do with being infected.

Hi, I am sorry on the eating part i was not too clear on what i meant. Nothing to do with catching covid on what i eat. What I was trying to say is that some things in foods that I eat can make me flare with some of my P/N symptoms i,e sugar, tomatoes, some fruits and alot of others and sometimes with none of these, Just the fact of digesting food the body goes thru can give me flare ups,. I know weird, But I do not have covid now and was only wondering if anyone knows if it also would have a negative stress factor on ones symptoms with P/N.

Dexter: Breath, breath, breath and take those Vit C, D and Zinc and if you can even grape seed extract....just hearing about people dropping dead in Mexico City area and MOST countries in the world do NOT take supplements, the U .S. yes we do, but most countries do not, and the Covid is so repiratory issues... In Mexico area they are saying people can't get their oxygen tanks filled and they are dying on the spots....

I just finished a two week bout of Covid-19, verified by a Covid test at RiteAid.

There was no impact on my PN from the Covid-19 illness.

This is off topic but I gotta mention: since my Covid infection my normal age related memory deficiency has lessened noticeably, a pleasant surprise. I have read that neurological changes can occur from Covid infection, mostly for the worse, however. My spelling still stinks, but I pretty much blame web browser spell check for this, as I no longer have to recall correct spelling.

I don't know much about Zinc except that the body benefits from small quantities in some manner.

When I was working, occasionally I'd be doing welding on steel that was galvanized(zinc coated to inhibit rust), I'd get Zinc poisoning which manifested mainly as headaches, which was easily treated.

Taking zinc was mentioned very early on when all this covid struck, ** Dr, Kelly Victory is on a local radio here every day and she says 50mg every other day, and I've read it's good take take a zinc combo with copper to even out these minerals in the body, and so I do this but I've been so involved in alternative healing for so many yrs that I understand all this, I believe.....
