3 COVID Symptoms Observed by Doctors That May Never End

During the throes of the virus the number of COVID-19 symptoms listed by the CDC included chills, fever, stomach distress, and many more. Now, some new research has shown that certain COVID-19 symptoms can last for months even after you have recovered. Some reports have stated: “In the first study to show a conclusive pattern, researchers at North Bristol NHS Trust found that three quarters of virus patients treated at Bristol’s Southmead Hospital were still experiencing problems three months later”.

There are a few COVID-19 symptoms that nearly 75% of patients have to deal with post recovery for a long time. Doctors are still unable to find an effective treatment that can cure these symptoms. These symptoms include:

1Breathlessness

COVID-19 can cause lung-scaring since it is a serious respiratory disease. Besides this, it can have many other side effects which include breathing difficulties. According to Dr. Scott Krakower: “The strangest thing about this illness was that he would seemingly start to recover, and then his symptoms would come roaring back worse than before. I would feel better for a period of like three or four days, almost to the point like I felt like the illness was gone, and then I rapidly deteriorated again”.

He continued to say: “And then out of nowhere, the whole thing spiraled down even more violent than the first time around. It was literally like my throat would start to swell and then I couldn’t talk”.

2Muscle aches

The NY Times reported : “Although body aches are a common symptom of Covid-19, some patients are reporting severe joint and body pain, particularly in large muscles”.

“Although it’s rare, Covid-19 can cause painful inflammation in the joints or lead to rhabdomyolysis, a serious and potentially life-threatening illness that can cause excruciating muscle pain in the shoulders, thighs or lower back”.

3Excessive fatigue

Excessive fatigue is one of the most commonly reported COVID symptoms that have been considered as a “long hauler”. The top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said at the International AIDS Conference- “Brain fog, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating. So, this is something we really need to seriously look at because it very well might be a post-viral syndrome associated with COVID-19”.
