Anyone else still extremely fatigued weeks after COVID symptoms? I’m still sleeping 10+ hours a day with low energy throughout. Need naps and feel faint a lot.

It will take time. Drink plenty of water, EmergenC, make sure you eat nutritious meals, drink green juice and tea with ginger (helps with energy too).

Quite a few viruses out there can cause damage to their host's mitochondria, which will cause fatigue for awhile until cell turnover clears the old damaged cells. If that's all it is, I wouldn't be too concerned

No problem! I personally avoid most supplements given the lack of government regulation with them, but was pretty desperate to get some function back and found the studies promising so I went for it after my doctor's approved me trying it. Even if you don't go that route, there are other ways to support mitochondrial health, like diet and moderate exercise (for example, I'd avoid alcohol for awhile bc it depletes NADH which is needed for ATP production- ATP is an energy carrying molecule)

My partner can hardly walk and talk at the same time without gasping for air. In addition hot/cold flashes. Nightmares. No sense of smell. Pressure on chest. Loss of sensitivity in some nerves - and a few other things. It’s been 3 weeks since her quarantine and she used to be really fit (27).

Yeah. ‚Only a flu‘. 😕


(Edit: her symptoms during the active infection where going on for 2-3 weeks. High fever, trouble breathing/pressure on chest, loss of smell/taste, some dry coughing, some diarrhea, muscle cramps, joint pain, very weak - not hospitalized, but really not far from it)

I hope you and your partner feel better soon as well! I’m hoping for antibody tests to become widely available so I can know for sure. Also, the crazy nightmare dreams, such a weird symptom. I have insane dreams every night. Last night was a Battle Royale style murder party.

It took me about a month to get my energy back. Don’t push it, give yourself time to recover.

It’s been about 4 weeks since I started experiencing symptoms (extreme headaches, nausea/ vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, fever, cough, chest pain and pressure, body aches and extreme fatigue — and probably forgetting a few but it was rough). The last week it’s been more pneumonia-like symptoms, could barely walking for a few days. I’ve been feeling okay the last three days but still get very fatigued still. I’ve always had underlying asthma and I get winded a lot, which before all of this I did cardio and weights every day. I’m not sure when I’ll feel 100% again but I’ve heard it’s a very long recovery process from my best friend who is a nurse in a COVID-19 unit. Hope you all feel better soon!
