Has anyone had COVID-19 (yet?)

I'd like to hear first or at most second hand an account of what it's like for a PwMS to go through COVID. I'm surprised and a bit concerned that I've not seen one here yet. Either we're very good at shielding, or we tend to die of COVID, or both. Or it's just a quirk of stats, and the rate of infection is still low enough that a medium to small sized community, particularly if self selecting for protection, wouldn't have at least one sample. After all in all my (admittedly small) social network only know two people who've been affected. As in affected with symptoms distinct enough to be clear it's the coronavirus, of course. That might be another factor. But maybe there is such a person here? Any first or second hand knowledge of having MS and getting the coronavirus?

Hi Will, I have had a suspected case of coronavirus. I was wanting to share my story on here but was waiting, as it’s been such a hard time for me recently. Please look out for my post in the next few days so I can detail everything that has happed in the past 2 months.


Hi Will, yes I think I have, but not confirmed, lost sense of smell, more tired than usual, very slight breathlessness. Not a big deal, I have been much more ill than that, for example when I had my LP done. I had just come back from Northern Italy the week before lockdown, I do remember being stuck in a small cable car with a coughing woman whilst there, did n't worry too much at the time as that was before anyony realised that it was in the Dolomites. We also flew home VIA Venice believe it or not! I am on Tecfidera though, so can't reasure anyone on anything stronger. I am 50, so not a spring chicken, not overweight
