Anyone recovering from Covid ? long covid?(5 Posts)
For those of you who have tested positive, just wondering how your recovery is going, as I am still having mild symptoms, but horrible fatigue, although it is improving.
How long before you felt back to normal?
I tested positive around 10th October, overall it was a mild case for 10 days, with waves of symptoms which felt like I was hit by a truck, then it would ease off for a few hours and hit again for another few hours, I didn't have respiratory issues, just a mild cough, fever, joint and muscle pain. I had horrible headache, dizzy spells and constant nausea and vomiting, then I broke out in hives last week.
I am still experiencing queasiness and headaches and have had 2 neurological 'episodes'. Dr. did blood tests last week which showed I am still fighting an infection and liver and kidney tests were slightly elevated. I have to keep track of the 'episodes' and if it continues I will be referred to a neurologist, thankfully I haven't had another one in 2 weeks, although I am finding I can be really slow to find some words, its pretty upsetting.
I am 100x better than I was, and feeling better everyday, but I can't shake the feeling that something has changed permanently, anyone else has experienced something similar, and are back to their normal self after a few weeks.
Hello, have a look at the 'my lungs' threads and the covid xxx weeks threads and you can read lots of similar experiences. I had covid back in March (no testing available then) and was ill for several months and Still have a few nerve pain symptoms/fatigue. Resting as much as you can will help recovery. Hope you feel better soon
Interesting to hear matt Hancock announce long covid clinics springing up. Hopefully people will start getting more help.
Thank you, I will look for those threads @emoojoo
I had it for 6 weeks. For me, days 33-42 were more intermittent.
