When the government started offering free LFTs to anyone who wanted them - and encouraged us to use them twice weekly in order to keep ourselves and others safe - I thought this was a good idea and got some for husband and self.
Unfortunately, they’re causing me big problems because I keep getting false positives. The LFT says positive but the follow-up PCR is negative, proving that I didn’t actually have Covid.
I’ve tried tests from different boxes but they keep showing positive. The only time I got a negative was when I had a cold!.
I’m wondering if there’s something in my meds - either the DMARDs or my asthma inhalers - which is skewing the results.
Anyway, I’ve given them up as being less than useful for my particular circumstances but wondered if anyone else was experiencing similar issues with them.
