I tested positive couple of days ago, apart from first day, have been asymptotic. Today I have woke up feeling really dizzy and disorientated. I feel really strange. Anyone else had this

Not me personally but have recently heard of two people who had dizziness and backache and nothing else (although I don't know if they developed any other symptoms after that). I hope you feel better soon.

I didn’t have a positive test as I didn’t have any other symptoms but the dizziness. I posted on here however if it could be covid off dizzyness alone and got a few replies saying they had the same so it is possible.....

Sorry meant to add they had the same with a positive test. I didn’t have a test as I didn’t fit the criteria for one.

I've had weird dizzy/lightheaded spells all week and have just been to do a test as lost taste and smell yesterday. A friend tested positive with back pain and general unwell feeling (tested through work)so anything's possible!

I had a cough, temperature and loss of sense of smell in early April when you couldn’t get a test unless you went blue, so I’m not certain I had it. Seems pretty classic mild symptoms though. I was very dizzy the whole time. I read that in hospital patients they have recorded low oxygen saturation even without breathlessness, so I put it down to that.

yes I had dizziness and lightheadedness and feeling disorientated for 3-4 days.... plus felt like lungs in a gentle vice....

Get lots of rest and drink lots of water.

Good luck!

I’m feeling decidedly odd! Sort of shaky. Not cold and shivering but just not quite right. Funny burning pain in one part of chest.

Have thought I had a cold as was sneezing. Also get hay fever and that seems to have flared up. But for a few weeks now not just today.

No idea if I should test. I don’t seem to meet NHS criteria.

Yes I had severe dizziness back in March. Vertigo and labyrinthitis. For me was so bad the symptoms didn’t disappear for over 3 weeks! But I mean terrible dizziness, where I couldn’t sleep or anything for a couple of days. I last had a positive antibody test in September just in case anyone questions how do I know I had it back then.

@Peridot1 did you get a test?

jmh740 Sun 01-Nov-20 16:08:23

I tested positive on tues breathless coughing weak and dizzy to name a few symptoms

@jmh740 I feel the same dizzy, lightheaded and weak. It's a strange virus sad

Peridot1 Mon 02-Nov-20 12:03:53

@CanThisBeOverSoon - I did. It was negative.

Urgh - I’m feeling a bit like this today as well. I’ve put my glasses on (usually only need them for driving) as my eyesight doesn’t feel quite right either. Generally feel a bit off colour, but none of the three main symptoms. So - I dunno OP.

Oh! Just realised this was from the other day!

In March just after lockdown came in I suddenly went dizzy while making lunch, told DH I was going to lie down till it passed and didn't get out of bed for a fortnight. Fatigue was horrendous, my heart was beating so hard it felt like it would come out of my chest then it suddenly paused and a massive thud would happen. This last all day, every day for two weeks. 111 said I had anxiety (i have a medical history of MH problems) but it was nothing like anything I experienced before. I had a tight chest also but again this was explained away as anxiety.

Since all the varying symptoms of covid have come to light I wonder now if it possibly could have been. The dizziness was awful so you have my sympathy, hope it passes soon thanks
