Can you have pneumonia with 98% oxygen saturation?
Hi @mkqq, I found an article that details a study on normal oxyhemoglobin saturation during sleep – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8989066. They found that for healthy patients, the median saturation was 96.5% +/- 1.5%.
I hope that the study gives you some relief, and that you are continuing to feel better. Do you still feel like your body is having more energy as the days go by, and have you been breathing better for the past few days?

Yes I do feel like I have slight more energy each day. Although today I was a bit tired and I think it's due to not sleeping well last night.
Breathing seems to be better, although at night in bed I'm still very focused on it which I think is making it worse.
I went to a clinic today and they again did some tests. The doctor checked my lungs with a stethoscope and couldn't find anything wrong. She said it is quite possible that I did have the Coronavirus and now I'm feeling the after effects.
They did a CRP test and it showed no trace of any viral or bacterial infection which means whatever viral infection I've had is gone now. At least that's a bit of good news.
