    Not gonna lie the tightness/pressure/pain in the dead center of my chest still has me freaked out. Definitely way worse when I lay down. It's not my lungs and it's not heartburn. Really all started after getting the first vax shot in March 2021. Lingered for a couple weeks and then was gone. Totally reappeared last week when my symptoms started.

    The chest "spasms" when I laid down to go to sleep were the weirdest/scariest. Nothing to do with my breathing or coughing. Very center of my chest. No spasms the last few nights luckily. Probably Thurs/Fri/Saturday nights these lightening bolt hits dead center. Definitely heart related. Like my heart "skipped a beat".

    When I went to the Dr about it last Spring he definitely brushed it off. "Myocarditis isn't really a thing....I guess we could do a sleep study...." That's when he did an EKG in the office and all was good, so I just kind of assumed he was correct cause he's the doctor.

    Guess I'm just writing this down so there is at least some record if I don't wake up one of these days lol.

I was also told to do a sleep study, which I never did and frankly should do, as I think I likely have some issues from waking up in the middle of the night after feeling like I stopped breathing for a bit.

    I'm still not completely convinced though This all started about a decade ago right after I came back from a Vegas trip where I didn't treat my heart very well.
    Sounds like you have sleep apnea, which is pretty serious. Luckily, the cute is pretty simple, a cpap.

    Don't delay it

    I was chatting with my dental hygienist today who said there had never been a case of covid known to be transmitted in a dental office. Apparently this checks out--although it's obviously impossible to be sure about something like that.
    https://dentalcaremarlboro.com/cdc-r...ices%E2%80%A8/

    She did have Covid, which she believes she got from her sister. No one else in the office has had covid. They have been wearing N95's since they reopened after the start of the pandemic. That would seem to be pretty good evidence for the effectiveness of N95's, at least against pre Omicron variants.

    Dental office in Nevada or Sac county? Nevada Co has not been doing contact tracing where they test close contacts. The Dir of Public Health explained this during the initial delta surge in September 2021 on a local media zoom check in.

    The link refers to a statement by the CDC so presumably Sac County, Nevada County, and every other county in America. That said, the CDC's statement can't be conclusive since no doubt the source of most covid infections is probably uncertain at best and unknown at worst--due in part to the lack of contact tracing as you say and due to the multiple potential sources for many cases. Still, the absence of cases determined to be acquired in dental offices should give some reassurance that good masks are effective, which is my point.

    It does sound like sleep apnea. Iíd also recommend you check out the book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor. I read it last fall after it was mentioned by a mag in another thread. He explores a variety of health issues including sleep apnea that are related to how we breathe. Iíve tried some techniques he talks about and theyíve had a positive impact on my health. YMMV

    If a funny feeling in the chest comes and goes but lasts long enough to check your pulse it's easy to feel if the heart rate is irregular.
    Abnormal heart rhythms can be caused by sleep apnea and a lot of other things.
    A constant pain and pressure in the chest is not caused by an abnormal heart rhythm unless the abnormal rhythm is constant.

    You guys are talking about a number of different tests:
    a sleep study is done in a lab where they observe you and measure various things while you sleep, heart rhythm being one of those things.

    A 24 Holter monitor which you do at home looks at your heart rhythm for a continuous 24 hours. It doesn't have anything to do with detecting sleep apnea although if you have a heart rhythm problem due to sleep apnea it will detect the rhythm.

    An event monitor is similar but it only records the heart rhythm when it detects an abnormal rhythm. It is worn for a week or longer.

    If a heart monitor detects abnormal rhythms only while you're sleeping that certainly suggests sleep apnea but that has to be confirmed with a sleep study.

    Xposting from the other Rona thread - I might have posted this in the wrong place because I have no tolerance for arguing with antivax idiots:

    Sorry to interrupt the constant stream of trolls and bad faith actors here, but I was wondering if I could get some medical advice on a ski forum.

    I'm quadruple vaxxed (2x Novavax and 2x full Moderna), and I believe that I have come down with the Cron. Fever of 101, achy as hell, chillz for days. This is my third day with some degree of noticeable symptoms, but I have yet to test positive on an antigen test (understandably).

    I've got a trip to Canada that I leave for on Jan 22 - up to the Ymir lodge to do any avy 2 with doebedoe, and I'm wondering if it's game over or if there's a chance I can recover in time to get a negative test.

    Any anecdata to make me feel better? Dumbolddad - what about a lead on some deworming medicine? At this point I'd do anything to make this trip happen, but I'm afraid that I might be well and truly fucked. We've both been so careful, too. Damn.

    OG? Any pearls of wisdom you might have?

    My experience with two coworkers who have recently been positive, they both showed negative within 10 days after first symptoms. Not from first positive test, which was a couple of days after symptoms.

    tgapp -

    honestly, your timeline is tight -
    You could push a test out as late as whenever they will guarantee to have results for you.

    other options may not be moral.

    Good luck -
    seems like one of you wrote of this trip months ago...

    Good luck. skiJ

    My point, which Iím sure you understood, is that our county has never attempted to trace back to the likely source of infection for any cases. Thatís never been their goal. Not enough resources.

    My beard disappeared to improve mask effectiveness. My kids still canít believe itÖ seeing my chin for the first time ever

    tgapp, I don't think this helps you, but you can enter Canada without a negative PCR if you have a POSITIVE PCR test taken 15 to 180 days before entering Canada. So you might want to get that PCR test as soon as possible, so if positive, you could enter Canada in 15 days. Also, average COVID infection last 10 days (at least that's what I read on Trevor Bedford's twitter recently). So decent chance you will be able to get the negative PCR test and still go.

    My doc, just 2 days ago in a covid eval, said you are 99.9% not contagious 10 days after symptom onset. Testing neg is another story. Thing #1 was still testing + yesterday, 14 days after symptom onset, days after no symptoms, others in the household who got it at the same time now testing -. Fuck man, sorry.

    My wife had symptoms (bad headache) 3-4 days before she same home with a fever and collapsed. 911 to hospital, tested positive. Came home next day. 10 days later contact tracing said we were good to go. I tested negative the day before. I still had to stay home 10 MORE days.. 5 days in to that I lost my sense of smell. 100% sure I got it from her about day 11 or 12, maybe longer sinse it was like day 15 since her headache started..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
