How did a Long Hauler COVID Clinic help you?
Well I waited over 6 months to go to a long hauler covid clinic in Central Florida and I'm very disappointed after my first and only appointment with this doctor.
I read so many reviews that she was working diligently and I'm sure she is with long hauler patients so I made an appointment since I've been sick for 2.5 years with many neurological and sensory and cardio and autonomic nervous system symptoms that are debilitating for 2.5 years now.
Well my first appointment after waiting 6 months was this past week. I told her that my husband and I both became deathly ill in late November 2019 along with many other people not only in America but around the world who became deathly ill with symptoms that absolutely 100% mimic covid yet the doctors at that time were not aware of it so they label it as a unknown upper respiratory virus. I was tested for the flu and pneumonia and it was all negative at that time but I could hardly breathe and had to go on albuterol and I had severe fatigue and brain fog and fever and dry hacking cough that lasted 2 months yet since there was no covid test at that time I was just labeled as having an upper respiratory virus of unknown origins and the same for my husband.
I explained all this to her and told her since that virus which I believe was covid and if you read reviews from around the world many many people were deathly ill in November and December of 2019 and many of us fully believe 100% it was covid. Yet the world was only told about this virus in January of 2020 only one and a half months after many of us became very very ill.
The doctor told me that it could not have been covid in late November 2019 because the first diagnosed patient in America was in I believe she said either December 2019 or early January 2020. I don't understand this just because a patient in America was the supposedly the first one diagnosed with covid in either December 2019 or January 2020 that that would exclude everybody else that was deathly ill one or two weeks prior to that supposed first diagnosed covid patient in America.
So basically after I gave her all of my debilitating symptoms which is kept me from even holding down a job for 2.5 years and I've been chronically sick and in bed a lot of times not able to function and my quality of life has gone to dirt she dismissed all of the symptoms and told me that they basically could not be from covid because of course as mentioned the first diagnosed covid patient in America was not until about 2 weeks or 3 weeks after my husband and I were deathly sick and Augusta Georgia.
So after waiting 6 months thinking I had some hope that a doctor would dig into this matter because I truly 100% believe as time passes by many of the doctors will have to awaken to the fact and the truth that covid was circulating way before January 2020. In fact many of the people who have come forward in China said that the virus was circulating in the summer of 2019 into the fall of 2019 and with the massive travel around the world people coming in and out of America thousands and thousands by the day from China there's no doubt in my mind my husband and I had covid yet not one doctor will recognize that and try to help me.
Therefore with hitting roadblock after roadblock after roadblock with doctors basically shutting off their ears to watch so many patients are telling them I am just washing my hands of it all. I will go to my grave being deathly ill fully knowing that all these neurologists and cardiologist and endocrinologist and primary care doctors have their nose firmly adhere to the wall and will not acknowledge or research or try to help patients that have never recovered and have heart issues or breathing issues or severe chronic fatigue or neurological autonomic nervous system malfunctioning etc and just because this supposed patient in America for the first patient in America that was diagnosed with covid was several weeks after my husband and I were sick yet the flu test was negative and pneumonia was negative so the doctors back then just diagnosed us as undetermined upper respiratory virus and I had to be put on albuterol and spiriva just to breathe when I've never had breathing problems and I've had many flu bugs in my day I'm 62 years old and I've had many many many cold viruses and flu viruses and I've never ever ever had those severe debilitating symptoms.
So once again I've been brushed to the side and was told last week that since my second covid diagnosis in March where I was tested for covid and it was positive and I had to have a monoclonal infusion that with that test showing covid in March of 2022 which I had the same exact symptoms in March 2022 as I had in November 2019 that she had to go by the March 2022 symptoms which showed nothing new except for more fatigue so that was the only symptoms she would work off of and she told me I should be gaining my strength and feeling better in a short time. She would not listen that I've been chronically fatigued for 2.5 years since the initial November 2019 virus. So I was sent on my way out the door with not even a follow-up appointment
I am washing my hands completely with all these doctors in America. This is absolutely disgraceful but you know what the truth will be told and I may not be alive to see it or hear it but the truth will be told that so many of us patients from around the world, not just America, who got a severe virus in the end of 2019 that we actually did have covid yet none of the doctors are willing to recognize that and try to help us. And of course it's brushed off as anxiety and stress and go on an antidepressant go on an anti-anxiety medicine go see a psychiatrist etc and I'm fed up with hearing that too.
