Good morning I hope you are all well. I'm an asthmatic recovering from covid 19. I was poorly for 3 weeks at home with what me go thought was a chest infection that had kicked my asthma off. I had no temp but an awful cough and felt so weak. After 2 weeks I was admitted to hospital. I tested negative but a ct scan showed ground glass opacity covid scarring on my lung and pneumonia. After 12 days I was discharged home but far from well. More steroids and antibiotics inhalers still i struggled to breath. I'm now on nebulisers at home and I'm living from 1 to the next as my chest is so tight and wheezy. Its scary times for us all. My pound of posting us to make you aware that not all people have a temperature with covid until they get a severe pneumonia. If your more short of breath feel weak and its more than you feel an exasperation of your usual asthma symptoms please dont be like me a d leave it until you can walk to the bathroom seek help soon. We are much more vulnerable than people realise. Please stay safe all. Xx
