Ok, thanks el Duck. Steve, the UK Dr J Campbell on YouTube says that the trend in the UK is that more than 1/2 heavy colds/flu's are now Omicron flu's.

Probably not in my case as I've tested on last Thursday - twice actually as I was handing in a PTR is it? and this was mentioned so I did a latent flow test and that was clear. Did another one on Sunday, same result and due another one tomorrow. - Think I mentioned before but I help out at a local day centre and we reopened yesterday - although I didn't take part of course - so getting back to testing 3 times a week.

As such fairly certain its not Omicron. Just don't know about the rings of raised inflamed skin and those painful lumps in the armpits and groin. :lol: :P

Hopefully both me and the game will be back in full action next week.

Well can confirm its not Covid as today's test is clear. :) Coughing again last night and eventually ended up getting a hot drink ~2am to ease my throat and that seemed to help. Might try it again tonight.

All the best Steve, doesnt sound like Omicron Covid. I don't like the skin & lumps symptoms; expect you have already discussed this with the Dr. Skin sensitivities can indicate an allergic reaction. I looked up Covid testing and in NZ what is commonly called a PCR test is , full name: "Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)". Learn something new every day.

Early in Jan, walking across the grass lawn, I got an insect sting on my 2nd toe. Didnt see if it was a wasp or bee. It was very painful; I fell to the ground squeezing my toes. Two days later my entire foot was swollen, and the toe was red with a red streak, from that toe, part of the way out along my foot. Fortunately I had some antihistamine pills (can be useful to help with sleep) so started taking them. Previously I had thought I might have developed a sting allergy. Now this recent experience seems to confirm it. Bad news if it was just a normal honey bee.

Ah sorry, you didn't get the joke. Apologies but my sense of humour can be rather odd. Those are some of the symptoms of bubonic plague. :wink: Possibly showing my age as well.

As it is just catching something on the radio about how really lacking sleep - which I'm having problems with - prompts you to eat far too much and often sugary or salty food, which is something I've been noticing so going to try cutting down.

Ok, you got me. I did think the mention of lumps was a bit casual. My insect sting was definitely real, & rather painful at the time.

You still might have Omicron though. I'm convinced we need to circulate Omicron in NZ while its still summer; no point waiting until winter to let it run. There are some unknowns like long covid, but Omicron might turn out to be the mildest variant of Covid that we ever have. There had better be some strict international controls on virus research implemented.

Its a possibility I suppose but I've had 3 tests since Thursday 7th and their all been negative so I doubt it. Due another test Sunday.

Hey Magoo. Sunday may not work for Dos. He suggests Monday, the 24th or Thursday, the 27th. How are you on those days?

Well the different medication seems to be helping somewhat and I'm getting a decent nights sleep now so feeling a lot better. Have to see how things go on the night as if I'm sabotaging Axis operations with too much coughing and spluttering I can always drop out. ;)

Felt good enough to have a couple of hours at the day centre yesterday and will be trying two days next week but those days have been moved to Wednesday and Thursday - I think we're a bit short of people on the last day - so a Sunday session would be fine with me.
