for those of you who don’t know i recovered from covid19 in april

today my heart rate hung out at 140 bpm for hours and now i’m in the ER for possible blood clots

when i tell you this happened out of nowhere, i mean it

& once again ring was my 1st indicator something was up
so the good news is d-dimer shows no clots

bad news is

“this might be how your body fights fevers from now on”

(i barely have a fever, it’s only 100)

so.. resting 140 bpm spikes & 12 ms hrv whenever i get an infection.. could be my new post covid normal

sigh, still in er
was able to come home

they got my bpm and blood pressure back down to near my baselines

hrv is a bit more challenging, lots of variables

left is hrv thursday
right is hrv now
all signs point to: i had my first cold since covid and this is my normal for now


- slight fever of 100
- relaxing
- eating soup
- heart jumps to 140bpm
- sits there
- blood pressure sky rockets
- i have to go to an ER if i can’t bring them down myself

i hestitated putting this out there because i am a person who desperately seeks validation from others (unfortunately)

my biggest fear was a whole bunch of people would be like “you don’t even know if you have it!”

and i just don’t have the spirit to deal with that right now
but just in case there are people out there that will gain something from me sharing my experience, i felt a need to share my what’s been happening to me over the last 15 days

so here it goes

15 days in the life of a (presumed) covid 19 positive patient
day 1 (of symptoms)

already self isolating

sudden fever spike and runny nose

fever in a matter of minutes went from 100 to 102

i thought the thermometer was broken

i took advil because i hadn’t learned you shouldn’t take nsaids yet

fever broke, i wrote it off as a cold
