So lets have a chat about side effects, symptons, thing to do in insolation, Ways we can cope etc
Lots of people have lingering after effects for weeks and months on end.
Some have permanent damage.
If your unlucky, and lose your sense of smell / taste, becasue the virus killed those cells that are responsible for it.... it could be permanent.
Going through life without ever smelling or tasteing things, is kinda sucky.
Its been linked to diabetes... so if you catch covid19, your more likely to lateron in life (already noticed in statistics) get diabetes.
if it attacks a important organ (say kidneys), this thing will have lasting effects on your life.
From the CDC:
most commonly reported long-term symptoms include:
- Shortness of breath
- Joint pain
- Chest pain
reported long-term symptoms include:
- Difficulty with thinking and concentration (sometimes referred to as “brain fog”)
- Muscle pain
- Intermittent fever
- Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations)
serious long-term complications (less common):
- Cardiovascular: inflammation of the heart muscle
- Respiratory: lung function abnormalities
- Renal: acute kidney injury
- Dermatologic: rash, hair loss
- Neurological: smell and taste problems, sleep issues, difficulty with concentration, memory problems
- Psychiatric: depression, anxiety, changes in mood
The "organ" damage is the big one.
Apparently its "uncommon" that its a huge issue, but almost everyone that gets covid19, gets minor organ damage.
Its pretty common to hear, that people months and months afterwards dont feel back to 100% (and may never again be).
This virus doesnt just attack 1 area of the body, it goes basically everywere.
Brain, lunges, kidneys, heart,.... ect (important things)
Blood clots... and strokes, are things to look out for as well.
