NHL: 24 team playoffs soon. Devil's season is over. Lottery 6/26

to answer the questions, I've been told that since I am not hospitalized and not in the age range of concern (and I have no underlying health issues), I can't get tested because of the limited quantities. which is a catch-22, because if I need to be hospitalized (and if this is the worst of it, I definitely don't) I need a positive test. Can't get a test without hospitalization, can't get hospitalized without a test. 

started 3 days ago. I had weird, weird, weird vivid dreams. A few migraines. Little bit of a cough. Tons of gastrointestinal distress even though I'm eating really clean lately (my wife is required to eat ridiculously healthy lately, so I'm doing so out of solidarity). it legit felt like I was housing wings and pitchers of beer. Yesterday it felt like a nasty cold. Today definitely feels like the flu or worse. When I inhale, there's a little bit of rattling... which is unsettling to say the least. I've been self quarantined since last monday, but our plumbing went out completely this weekend -- we had no hot water and low water pressure. So we had a plumber on monday morning. guessing that's where I got it, but who knows.

stay home everyone. please. 

EDIT: and yes @Satans Hockey, I'm fortunate enough to have an unused guest room and guest bathroom at my house. We still pass eachother in the house, but at least I've been able to stay away from her as much as possible.

Oh man MB3, best of luck, of course I hope it's not CV, but regardless of what it is, I hope you feel better soon.

Godspeed MB, hope you either beat the symptoms soon or get a test to validate continued self quarantine.

All the best MB, one of the twins are in the hospital as well. Tuesday night he had erratic breathing and was admitted. They did a COVID test on him, moved him to the COVID floor (no confirmed cases on the floor with him and the wife who has asthma and other higher risk things) and now the entire family is on self monitoring. I've been stuck inside with the other one and since we're on self monitoring, cant go anywhere like a park to walk. Have had a few people drop by to drop things off or pick things up, but it definitely blows.

Sorry to hear that jag. I know you must feel, like I would, that you’d rather it be you than your kid. I wish you the best man, rough times but I hope it all resolves quickly.

All the best, guys.  Reading this is the first time it's actually felt like it's directly affecting someone close to me. 

My wife is due to have a baby girl the first week of May so I'm praying this thing can at least settle down a bit before we (or maybe just her at this point) have to spend some time in the hospital. 

Hey @DevsMan84, which grocery store?  I don't think we live too far apart from one another.

Thanks everyone. We’re cautiously optimistic they’ll be home tomorrow. We were hoping for today, but the lab still doesn’t have his viral swab results back, COVID will be another few.

Yeah Jag, all the best.  Nothing worse than seeing your kid sick, with anything.  Hope he recovers quickly.

Today is two weeks since I was last in the office.   I got word a couple days ago that we are all to work from home through April 13.  Right now the only thing I am missing at the office are my dual screens.

Morning everyone. After what can only be described as the worst night of my life, I have been declared “presumptive positive” by a video conference doctor and told to self isolate for 14 days after my fever has gone away 72 consecutive hours. I asked about getting a test and was basically told that i’m young and don’t need one because i live in a town full of old snowbirds. I asked if that made me less of a taxpaying citizen which the doctor did not appreciate. oh well. 

thing comes in waves. i’ll have two full hours where i think i’m completely over it and then i’ll have a coughing fit so bad it’s hard to get air. i’m a healthy, pretty fit 28 year old who plays hockey and tennis and works out.

Wasn't shortness of breath supposed to be one of the symptoms that would allow you to at least see a doctor?  Seems ridiculous that you can't at least get a damned test.  

How high is your fever?

As insane as it sounds to a logical persons the fact you’re young and healthy, and (I assume) have no real underlying health conditions, they probably are using that as defense to not test you and just roll presumptive.

it pisses me off for you that they’re ignoring the secondary effects such as your wife.

my buddy’s wife is in the same boat as you, young healthy and symptomatic but they aren’t testing her, at least not yet. Meanwhile my little guy gets a test and wasn’t symptomatic. That at least made a tiny bit of sense since they don’t fully know symptoms in toddlers.

Beat of luck dude, if you need anything I’ll sanitize the sh!t out of stuff and mail if once we get out of quarantine here.

Scary that the US is now having the most cases in the world... even though all i keep hearing is that nobody thinking they have it can get a damn test.
