Anyone recovering from Covid ? long covid?

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

I had it for 6 weeks. For me, days 33-42 were more intermittent.

@YouAreAmazing0, I am so much better finally ! The dizziness is gone, but I still get bouts of mild queasiness. Dr. told me to take motilium for the nausea, but it really didn't help that much. I hope you feel better soon.
