Has taken way over a week to feel normal. I'm on day 10 and still took today off work. My husband really suffered with body aches, his high temp was quite delayed but came with a vengeance.

Also tested positive last Wednesday and feeling awful despite triple jabs. Sore throat and fever has got better but headache, body aches, sinus pain and fatigue is awful.
This afternoon however is the first day since Friday that I haven't napped, so hoping I'm slowly starting to feel better.
Get well soon, you're not alone.

4x jabbed, had Covid in March when I was 3 x jabbed and barely had a symptom. Had 4th jab end of June and it’s bloody knocked me out this time. I’m finally turning a corner today (day 8)

I'm on day 8 and still feel shit. Like you, completely knocked me off my feet. I'm not completely bedridden like I was the first couple of days, but I have had to have a lie down every day, even when I've done nothing all day.

My worst was day 3: all the symptoms seemed to flood me urgh those Aches…and then peaked with a temp that night and I improved from there. Each day a random symptom re appeared for a short while. . Was left with a sinus headache/lack of smell day 5. Runny nose day 6. I’m pretty much normal since Saturday so day 8 bar a little bit of coughing but still positive ( test to go back to work) day 11.

I'm on day 5. Blocked nose, blocked sinuses, blocked ears. The nausea is something else. My temperature hasn't gone up again at least and the headache I had for the first four days is now manageable...but I have never in my life experienced head pain like that before.

Doesn't help I'm pregnant and can't take much else other than paracetamol.

Hope we all feel better soon

It took me two full weeks but there is light at the end of the tunnel - aside from a stuffy nose and residual cough I am finally back to normal today. Have faith, it will get better.

It took me at least two weeks to feel normal and I am still exhausted when I get in from work (4 weeks)

Day 9 here and still feel pretty awful, cold symptoms have pretty much gone but the exhaustion is like nothing I've ever had (I'm 52 and have had my fair share of viruses). Having managed to avoid it for 2 1/2 years I was pretty blaze about it but good god I'm going to be doing everything I can to avoid catching it again.

Without the jabs you'd probably be fine, like most of the unjabbed.

@Samarie123
the only two unjabbed people I know both ended up in hospital with it, one 30 years old now has kidney damage and a fit 50 year old who has scars on her lungs.

Without the jabs you might not be here to write about it.

Really horrible. Day 3-4 was the worst, aches and shooting pains, chills that made me cry. Also sick of the rollercoaster, I think I’m okay and then I lose my taste again and feel dizzy and fatigued. Had enough now. Sorry for anyone else holed up with bloody variant.

Have had it since at least last week. At first I thought it was the end of another infection I had. Body aches, chills, fever, stuffy nose, very sore throat.
However what I was not expecting was the HORRIFIC diarrhoea. Every 10 mins for 24 hours. Almost wound up in hospital and lose 7lbs water weight.
Dying afraid it’ll come back.
Not jabbed.

I'm so sorry you are suffering so badly .. I was the same .. "how bad can it be " and then got it and literally felt like I was dying . Sunshine and Berocca helped a bit but I could not have anticipated feeling quite so rubbish . Wishing you a speedy recovery

Sorry to read how awful everyone’s feeling. I’m also feeling pretty rubbish with this new variant despite many jabs and previous omicron bout in January. Just so tired my brain won’t connect and weird aches and nausea. Horrible.
