I tested positive on February 17 and started the 5-day treatment of Paxlovid that evening.
By February 24, I started to improve and thought that I was on the mend. But by Sunday, February 26 the symptoms returned with a vengeance (severe congestion, cough, fever, headache, fatigue).
I went to the sick clinic at my doctors office on Tuesday, February 28 and was seen by a nurse who said she didn’t think it was rebound and only a sinus infection. She put me on antibiotics. I felt unheard and unseen. It seems to me to be classic rebound, but it was as if she didn’t want to acknowledge it (maybe they didn’t want to report it?).
Isolation is recommended for 5 days following the first day of rebound, so I have treated it as a rebound to protect my husband who is diabetic.
Has anyone else experienced rebound with Paxlovid? Anyone end up with a sinus infection with COVID?
