Post-COVID syndrome: Heart and lungs

Post-COVID syndrome: Heart and lungs

Now that we’re a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re beginning to have an understanding of the lasting long-term effects the disease has. Prolonged symptoms have colloquially been called long COVID, and those who are experiencing these symptoms are colloquially called long haulers. Long COVID may also be referred to as long-term COVID, chronic COVID, or post COVID syndrome, as no official term has been established yet.

  4. 120s… post covid medication doesn’t work anymore and doctors already tried 3 different BP meds on me. I’m constantly between 145-160. I have no idea what to do 🙁

  5. i have been having burning feelings on the top left of my chest, also been having shortness of breath. I have also this feeling where i may faint may cause me to panic. I do not know why but hopefully it is serious. I have taken Heart Rate tests, oxygen levels were fine and blood test. All show to be good so i dont know if it is anxiety or not.. Please Let me know.

  6. this is all because of the vaccine, i was completely fine. got my second shot 2 months ago, ever since i’ve been experiencing chest pain, lung pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and difficulty breathing

  7. Anyone having trouble eating ? every time i eat something it doesnt feel right,and my stomach almost always hurts and its not digesting properly,aside from anxiety this is my biggest problem also…also 0 appetite,idk when to eat or when im full but the feeling in my stomach is just disgusting,chest pain is also present…. Will this ever go away is my concern

  8. It’s crippled me. Got it the second time and I’m out of work I’m so fatigued. Chest pain when I walk anywhere or stand too long.
    Headaches confusion etc. it’s no joke

  9. I am 20 years old and I developed asthma after catching covid back in October of 2021. To this day I have days where I feel okay to do something but have to stop, and there are days like today where I can’t get out of bed because I can’t breathe standing or moving around. I seen a pulmonologist and I currently take generic Advair 113/14mcg and my rescue inhaler I use almost 4 times a week. I’ve been out of work since then because I can’t breathe, I was taken to the hospital from work in an ambulance for an asthma attack and left home by ambulance multiple times for asthma attacks. It’s 6 months now and I feel like I’m never going to get better, trying to keep hope. Praying everyday to be healed. The doctor said it takes time, how much? We don’t know exactly but he did say up to a year.

  10. Caught Covid December 22, 2022. Somedays I can mow the yard with no problem and somedays i push the mower for 5 minutes and I have to stop. My heart races and I feel anxiety. After 5 minutes of rest I can mow for 5 minutes again and repeat. Yes, this is real and I don’t know how to fix it.🥺

  11. As I have experienced

    Also there's few red dot in my skin which is like pimples but no.. 😂

  12. Post covid from the beginning of this year being double vaccinated, i experienced intense coughing, wheezing, and breathlessness. I managed it for a few weeks and one day at work I couldn’t talk and had chest pain. They said i had bronchitis due to covid and put me on prednisone and zpack and gave me an inhaler. i have not experienced the breathlessness again but now have asthma and have to use my inhaler a few times a week. combined with my allergies i have everyday it’s been very tough and it’s two months after
