Long Covid.


Recommended Posts

What are people's experiences.

I'll start. Not felt the same since recovering from a bout of this flu like illness.

Beer tastes oddly different. Get tired more often. Get the Delhi belly often. Sh*t through the eye of a needle often.

Will admit, the ale is flowing to help keep spirits up.

But, definite change in how I feel.

Does it ever leave your system? Do they know something we don't I wonder?

The whole thing is getting very weird now.

A month or two later, he told me that he was feeling cold and that the circulation in his fingers wasn't what it was. I pointed out that we were walking through snow in Berlin at the time and he's in his early fifties.

The human brain is great at finding patterns, even patterns that aren't there.

No reflection on the OP's situation; just a comment that correlation is not causation. Teasing out cause and effect for any of this is going to be tricky.

I think I agree with this. When gyms were last open I remember mentioning to one of the bros about how some weeks you are lifting well and other weeks it all feels a struggle. Never seemed to be much reason for it apart from maybe carb intake so muscle glycogen stores

Very few professional sports people who have tested + have had long term issues. 

A few outliers have taken a while to get back to full fitness. But relatively tiny numbers. 

Longest I've heard about was Newcastle player. Funny name. He was playing the full 90 mins last night again and looked fine.

It was him and Lascelles. Both black and living in Newcastle, poor sods.

Good point. Probably vit D deficient. 

With all the high paid nutrition "experts" these teams employ - I'd wager many are still clueless on the basics of vit D.

Yep, I've had that. Fingers and toes feeling very cold very often, even now as I type, my hands and feet are cold. I'm early fifties, in pretty good shape, fit, but this thing has definitely left a marker on my system.

I have a regular steelly like taste in my mouth. The same taste after taking a Zopiclone sleeping pill the day after the nights sleep.

I'd say stop drinking if you're not well.

I’ve suspicions on lingering fatigue, but as noted hard to really know.

I read that as "lingerie fatigue" and was finding it hard to feel sorry for you.

I've had this in the past after ordinary flu and also while pregnant.  After a few months it passes.

I think I had this current lurgy well before it was even supposed to be in the country and I've since read that it was supposedly in Wuhan in autumn 2019 so before the Chinese realised it existed.  I was ill over Christmas 2019 and I can remember saying to the doctor it was not like any flu I'd had before.  I had a terible cough which lasted for weeks and temperature plus a racing heart.  My tastes changed a lot and it took a few weeks to feel back to normal.  The  metallic taste was part of it.  I think I read somewhere it is suposed to show a zinc deficiency or something.

Cheers. But I'm a responsible drinker. I never spill a drop.

To go tee total under these current restrictions would kill me off quicker.B|

I had that metallic taste in my mouth on and off for months/a year or more over around 15 years or so ago.

I’ve no idea what caused it but it just went away. Never had it again.

For around that time I’ve endeavoured to reduce man made chemicals as much as I can. It’s impossible to avoid but that’s how modern life is.

I’m not keen on doctors and stay away from them. Luckily I’ve had no emergency or worrying health issues where I’ve thought I need tests etc.

Many symptoms just pass and it’s useful, in my opinion, to do your own research and try some natural type self help options for a while.

I knew it, recently passed the big five O. It's all downhill now, you will notice the other deteriorations soon.

Apparently one in 8 Brits have had covid (ie, have antibodies; about double the official positive cases, which sounds about right).

If long covid was an actual thing you'd see evidence of it every day.

As it stands, long covid is a weird and rare condition that the BBC have to try very hard to find examples of.

I don't think it exists beyond normal post viral fatigue and the impact of long term hospitalisation for octogenarians.

Just got over it but seem to have a shortness of breath when I go for my usual brisk walk which I didn't have before.  Also I have felt poor circulation in my fingers.  My toes are itchy and swelled up slightly - something called 'Covid Toe' !

Well I hope you are correct bud.

This whole lockdown bollocks must be the reasoning behind the symptoms.

Driving me insane.

I think I had it Christmas 2019. Was still ill end of January, got tested for vitamin D: was very low. 

Cold symptoms disappeared around that time. Felt fairly unfit for the rest of the year:

Usual 10 min aerobic warm up at the gym was a struggle initially. 

Running was awful when gyms shut first time. I was never a good runner but it was like starting fron scratch, even though I did do some exercise at the gym. 

Running in second lockdown was even worse! Now I am just walking lots. Sweating but don't get out of breath anymore. 

I think part of the problem this year was sitting around all the time because I don't need to walk to work, and not going to the gym. 

So yes, I was sick for a long time but I blame the very long term lack of fitness on the lockdown.

I'd like to think that I mainly feel wiser. If it wasn't for the lockdown, I wouldn't have had quite so many questions and time to follow this site, and various alternative news quite as much.

itchy toes and feet, theres me thinking it was the cat and his fleas or some fungal infection, had it for a couple of weeks, woke me up and had to go wash my feet in warm salty water or put calamine lotion on them to ease it, was so bad i couldnt ignore it like i usually can with itches so i dont make them worse by scratching.

Actually felt more akin to heat rash but no rash, might well have been a bit swollen as well. Poor cat, he had 2 weeks of de-fleaing, even though i found very few maybe 2 or 3 the whole time.
