    Thought it could be useful with a thread on stories of ME-patients with Covid-19.

    The newspaper VG has an article about one of the youngest patients that has been hospitalised so far in Norway with Covid-19. She is also diagnosed with ME.
    She was at the hospital for a sinus operation, but deteriorated when she came home and developed sepsis. Back at the hospital she tested positive for Covid-19.
    She says the sepsis was much more worrying for her than the virus infection. She felt very well taken care of. The sepsis is now gone and she was dismissed from hospital on Friday and is now in isolation at home.

    VG: Marielle (28) var innlagt med coronavirus: - Tungt å puste
    google translation: Marielle (28) was hospitalised with corona virus: - Difficult to breathe

    I presume rather than "printed" this means she was diagnosed on Friday??

    She was dismissed from hospital on Friday. It's called being "written out", and yes, one can say the same thing about printing. Never thought about that before :laugh:

    Update on Sally (Foggy Dog)

    She has also followed up with a couple of quick films (to save typing) with her symptoms, so you can read the updates on the twitter feed

    I believe you phone the NHS 24 or 111 and they will send out paramedics who will arrange for you to be taken to hospital if you need it.
