Tue, Mar 24 10:54am · COVID19: Are survivors immune from re-infection? in COVID-19

Chatting is OK – But a few facts might be useful too – Like – Are ‘survivors’ of CoVid19 immune from a re-infection?
For example, as we are after the ‘flu’.
Plenty more questions. Just looking for ‘Informed’ responses. . . . .

Tue, Mar 17 8:37am · COVID-19 and MAC: What are you doing differently to protect yourself? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

Is it an accepted fact that transmission of Covid-19 is limited to one's 'face'? Assuming that you are not around other people (minimum 6 feet?) AND you never touch your face – are you 'immune'?

Maybe start here:-
"Careful 'tapering' is needed if you have been taking Prednisone orally.
But, there are no set rules.
An example of Prednisone Tapering:-
After 2 days at 40+ mg per day; decrease dose to 35 mg for 2 days.
Then 30 mg for 2 days.
Then 25 mg for 2 days
Then 20 mg for 2 days
Then reduce dosage by 2.5 mg every 2 days.
When 10 mg dose is reached, decrease in 1-mg every 2 days
If symptoms flare up, increase dosage immediately until relief.
Prednisone works best if taken at least twice per day.
(Even 10mg or 20 mg can 'wear off' after 12+ hours).
Only the patient can determine appropriate dosage/frequency.

Wed, Feb 5 7:02pm · CMT=Charcot Marie Tooth Disease Type 2 Neurological Disorder form of MD in Neuropathy

Looks like there is a definitive test:
Found this:-We report a 14-month-old toddler. The child presented with symptoms such as unsteadiness and ataxic gait along with decreased motor and sensory action potentials of the limbs. As the father of the child was diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1A disease, a genetic analysis of the PMP22 GENE was performed confirming the diagnosis of Charcot- Marie-Tooth 1A in the child, too.
This case underscores the significance of an appropriate neurological assessment.
