Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak After Nasal Swab Testing for COVID

Are you sure you want to “just go get tested” to see if you might come up positive (even though there’s plenty of false results).

What can go wrong?

Ehhhh…. just look at the picture of the testing procedure.

It is not a little swab of the nostrils.

What can go wrong?

Extreme pain, bleeding and injury.

How about damage that causes cerebral spinal fluid to leak?

Symptoms to watch for:

~fluid draining out of your nose,
~headache, and

Serious stuff “just to see” if you might come up positive.

Here’s a paper written by three doctors about such a thing.

A woman in her 40’s got a COVID test prior to elective surgery.

She had serious symptoms shortly after:
Excess fluid draining from the nose, headache and vomiting.

It did not just get better … she had to have SURGERY to repair the damage.

You must wonder, if this virus is so contagious that we can transmit it with a sneeze or unclean hands, why do they need to take these ultra-long swabs to get a sample from way up in the naso-pharyngeal area where it is possible to cause damage?

JAMA Otolaryngology published a study by these three doctors. You can read all about it in the link below.

If you test positive, then what?

You would want to take major steps to support your immune system. I’ve written about it and recorded several videos to help you know what to do. See my website, search “flu” … here’s info for you,

You need to decide if getting the test is necessary or right for you, but did you know that there are these risks???
