Adrian N., FL

I have pneumonia brought on by COVID-19. I am a 40-year-old man in great shape. Blood work was perfect a week before. Itching started in chest and lungs then flu like symptoms set in. The flu like symptoms lasted six days then the pneumonia set in.

Every breath I took induced a cough that sent pain through my head that felt as if someone were pinging a pipe off of it. The cough medicine “tesalon pearls” did nothing. I couldn’t sleep, couldn’t breathe. I went to the ER and was put on oxygen, and steroids. The only way I could rest was to drink a bottle of robitussin with expectorant. Get vaccinated.
