      but still Paracetamol helps reduce temperature so I would go for that (as well as for pain relief)

      ibuprofen is for inflammation (as well as for pain relief) - this is not part of the Covid-19 symptom from what I have heard

      yep, they are saying ibuprofen is not an issue but to me it is not the correct medicine - but if you only have ibuprofen then use it for pain relief
      Up the TSF!

        A high temperature is your body's way of fighting the virus, it doesn't like it too hot. But as well as killing pain, paracetamol also reduces temperature which can be counterproductive.

          Well I've got it and it isn't painful, simply a severe cold with a bit of a temperature. It's best to let the bodys immune system deal with it and not take any medicines, christ if you can't put up with a sore throat and cough there's something wrong with you.
          Yes we have to protect the vunerable but this panic buying is getting out of hand, I've just been on the sainsbury's website and there are no delivery slots for the next three weeks but I've got relatives who can shop for me, all I need is a cheese and onion pasty with a pickled onion and a large tomato anyway. People are spoiled these days with all this choice of 50 different types of pasta etc etc, when I was young there was potatoes and spam or corned beef and nobody was fat, chance for some of the porkers out there to lose some of those extra stones.

          Anyone would think there were bombs raining down on us, god help this snowflake generation if that ever happened, they can't even put up with a bit of name calling online without dialling the suicide hotline,
          get a bloody grip,
          can't play snooker for the foreseeable future
          Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
          but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

            Hope you get better soon. How do you know you have it without the test? Did you phone 111 for advice?

              It's all done online, nhs 111, you can't get through on the phone to anyone as the lines are jammed with callers and you're not allowed to visit your local surgery or hospital if you have the symptoms to prevent it spreading so you simply self isolate. No ones getting tested unless they're referred to hospital with breathing problems so the total number of people infected isn't known.
              Received an update from the gov/uk website on saturday that once your temperature goes back to normal after seven or so days you're in the clear and will not transmit the virus to anyone else even though your cough can remain for weeks, so I'm back to work tomorow.
              Anyone who lives alone and has developed the symptoms and self isolated for seven or so days should be OK, but if you're infected it takes around seven days for the symptoms to show so anyone who lives in a household with someone who has the symptoms should stay home for fourteen days because you're a carrier before the symptoms show and can pass it on.

                My daughter is a nurse and works in the respiratory ward. There are young people in there( under thirty) with no underlying health issues but they are struggling. If you ever saw pictures of how doctors and nurses dressed during the Ebola outbreaks, that's exactly how she has to dress at work, it's the full bio hazard look. It's strange how some can get it and hardly know they have had it and yet others are floored with it but if you get it bad it's no joke.
                Take care everyone.

                  Hope you get well soon. Back in 2011 I had the worst bout of flu and a lasting cough of my life and at one stage I thought I was going to die. My chest was so full of slime and the coughing fits were so severe I would be struggling to breath at times. It became so severe I would have to dash to the toilet at work to vomit and I should have gone to see my GP but was too scared and thought if I go to hospital an infection could finish me off. I dread the day I get an infection that leads to a cough as I don't think my lungs will be able to cope after that.

                  Worrying how Covid-19 can become so serious so quickly and lead to pneumonia and looking at the news now it's leading to violent crimes. If martial law is going to be announced it will be within the coming days.
