I had COVID back in March. I lost my taste/smell, had fever, body aches etc for about a week or so but I was coughing for a really long time. I was coughing up phlegm for probably around 3 months.
For a few weeks, the cough got so bad that I must've bruised my ribs. Every time I needed to cough, I would have to clutch my body because it hurt so bad.
BH that went away after a few weeks. My smell fully returned after a few months, and I have no lingering symptoms.

However, since then, I have lingering pain in my rib. Every time I sneeze, or get up the wrong way from a lying down position, I feel pain in my rib.
I've been thinking I should go to the doctor, but can't imagine there's anything to do about it either way.

Maybe there's a fracture that didn't heal correctly?

That's what I'm thinking. I don't think there's anything to do about that either way and I loathe doctors, so I'm ignoring it for now

Why would you loathe doctors? Do you mean you loathe seeing a doctor?

Correct. I have nothing against (most) doctors

I think it's is normal for bruised ribs to hurt for months afterwards. I once had a time where I was coughing constantly and even after it stopped my ribs would hurt me for months. It will get better and disappear with time. But can't hurt to go to a doctor to have it checked out.

That makes perfect sense. I have issues in general with talking/singing. How do I teach myself to blow and breathe from my lungs?

They need a system to classify this and break it down to cohorts. People who have some minimal symptom doesnt compare to people who still have severe symptoms six months out.

Should indicate vaccines are effective at preventing reactivations, though it may be placebo

I am slightly hopeful, but there is a big chance that it is indeed the placebo effect taking place here.

40% is pretty high for a placebo effect no?

For symptoms that are hard to diagnose in the first place? Maybe, but I'm not convinced yet. Obviously, would be great if the vaccines helped for this, too.

"heard" immunity would help for that too!

Long COVID, or the government using it as an excuse to burn money?
