Nearly one in three patients were diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorders

Nah that's just the Fox News overdose.

Stomach pain, lack of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting were among the commonly reported conditions.

Remember the article from yesterday about how TFG was losing weight?

A friend is about to hit his COVID anniversary, and still hasn't recovered.  He's doing a lot of art therapy to stay sane.

Another friend who had COVID last March recently told me she still can't taste things, except for fresh fruit which tastes like rotting flesh.

With the way this disease has been going in 5-10 years it'll come out that having long-covid increases your likelihood of getting incurable cancer in some form.

A fully vaccinated good friend of mine got it back in May. She had no history of asthma but now has an inhaler at all times and has to ration what activities she does on a daily basis because she gets extremely fatigued at the drop of a hat.

Never hospitalized but it has absolutely impacted her negatively every single day since contracting it.
Who knows what other long term effects it'll have.

Definitely lack of taste.
Have you seen Trumps home decor?

Someone's going to sell covid-19 infections as a diet plan, aren't they?

It's been done with tapeworms.

Has she tried rotting flesh, on the off-0chance i might taste like fresh fruit?

Our current Governor here in Virginia got COVID in 2020 and still hasn't gotten his sense of taste or smell back.

FTFA: During their illnesses, many patients with COVID-19 experience symptoms, such as tiredness, difficulty breathing, chest pain, sore joints and loss of taste or smell.

Man, I must've gotten long Covid in 2003 because I've felt all of those since I turned 18.

I have to ask ... how, exactly, does one know what that tastes like?

My SIL had Covid last Oct and had lingering symptoms until she got vaccinated in March. But apparently it left her lungs vulnerable bc another respiratory virus landed her in the icu for a week and out of work for two months. She still gets easily winded and is now asthmatic.

The sense of taste is linked to a persons sense of smell.

The hubs and I had it last November and the only lingering issues we have are that he gets way worse hangovers from way less booze than he used to, and I now always feel sinus pressure in my ears.

My son had it last summer. Everything tasted like garlic or burnt toast, he said. Symptoms thankfully went away after he was vaccinated.

I know several people who tested positive for covid, got over the sickness, then had lingering health problems since.

I have also met several people who told me they got covid months ago (although never confirmed this with a test), got over it in a couple days and had zero health problems after... which is why they don't need to get a vaccine.

Half-half anecdotally fits with the people I know and their covid stories. But it's a very very suspicious half-half.

Have you seen a Trump rally?  I'd say covid increases your appetite...for mayo

We think it was a contributing factor to my FIL's death. He did get the vaccine when it was available and like many people he felt a lot better after that but there was damage done and it certainly didn't help things to be weakened for months.
 
2021-10-13 3:44:37 PM  
The article says 79% of the people surveyed were hospitalized because of Covid. Gallup reports that the hospitalization rate for unvaccinated population who catch Covid is 0.89%, and that nearly everyone seems to think it is actually much higher. So that study is heavily biased toward hospitalized people. I expect the rate of long covid will be much lower if you include more of the 99% of people who don't need to be hospitalized.

I'm sure there have been many deaths to which Covid-19 strongly contributed, but they're not counted as covid deaths. My wife's aunt would be one of them. She died something like eight months after having covid-19 bad enough to be in the hospital for several days. After that she was in and out of the hospital several times with respiratory problems. She then died at home. Respiratory failure. Part of the family, the anti-vax part who look for anything they can to dismiss the effects of the pandemic, said oh, her mom had respiratory issues too. Yeah, but her mom lived into her 80s. This woman died in her 60s, and we know serious cases of covid-19 cause long term lung damage. So... duh.

"Half" of all people diagnosed with covid having long covid doesn't seem like the right number.

The study group is 250,351 people who were diagnosed with covid. Of those people, 79% were hospitalized.

People who caught covid and were not hospitalized seem to be under-represented.

It's a bad headline for sure.  The facts are scary enough as they are.

You mean like massive lung scarring increases your risk of cancer?

This monstrosity cannot be "lived with." No disease that leaves half of its victims disabled can be "lived with."

It will take a long time, but it must be exterminated.

A year and a half later my energy is close to back. Brain fog mostly gone. Sense of smell and taste are close. Coordination is taking a long time. Lungs still won't let merunbut are doing better.

100% agree, but i also meant elsewhere in the body, since it attacks everything.

I'm a long hauler. Evidence points to me getting Covid in Dec. 2019/Jan. 2020 and have had numerous random and strange health occurrences since. Two required emergency hospital visits. I've been tested for everything you can imagine, had ultrasounds, MRIs etc. with no actual diagnosis. May 2021 I got my first Pfizer shot and saw an almost immediate change and by my second shot the vast majority of my symptoms have dramatically lessoned or disappeared. There are still a few symptoms that are linked to Covid, but there is no definitive proof. I'd love to get a booster or a Moderna shot to see if it finally returns me to normal. I'm part of a Covid study here in Ontario so I've been keeping pretty thorough records. It will be interesting to see their findings.
