Long Covid and Peri Symptoms Confusion
« on: November 30, 2020, 07:58:53 PM »

Hi all,

I have recently read an interesting article about long covid. There is still a load more research to be done in this area obviously.

Anyway, I  believe I may have had covid back in March and ever since then have had a sore throat and cough that comes and goes since then to date, and really bad breathing issues to the point that even getting up from a seated position makes me out of breath - add to that chest pain that comes and goes and a racing heart beat that comes on especially at night.

Most recently (I think I had a seizure) after jolting up out of sleep with heart racing. My legs and arms were shaking uncontrollably, it was so strange and scary. I think it stopped after about 3 minutes.

Anyway, maybe my eye is off the ball and I'm chalking up all my symptoms to peri symptoms, but really it's long covid or a bit of both. The problem is that docs probably won't take it seriously if I mention it.

Check this article out and look at the symptoms. Fast heart rate, chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue and so on...

Does anyone else suspect long covid?

You can pay for a test that can tell you if you have had Covid.
I think it’s quite expensive but might be worth it to settle your mind.
I have a friend who is suffering from long covid .
I think you have said you are suffering from panic attacks. Maybe after you have had your tests you might feel a bit more settled.

Yes, I was thinking of buying a test, may be worth it. At least as a process of elimination, what with all the symptoms I'm experiencing - it would certainly help.

Thank Franny! :)
