These symptoms of coronavirus are common, but surprising to some.
After a year of a pandemic, we all know what symptoms to look out for – fever, dry cough, fatigue. However, because the virus attacks the whole body, it can also cause symptoms that are miraculously often not found in the media.
These are the 11 symptoms of the corona virus that aren’t really talked about, but are worth remembering to protect your health as well as the health of the people around you.
1. DIARRHEA AND VOMITING
Symptoms that are not easy to tolerate as well as talk about. However, gastroenterological symptoms are common in this disease and may even be the only symptom that will reveal that you are ill. After a nurse in Australia reported only these symptoms, they immediately insisted that they be discussed so that the public would be informed about them as well. A study from Wuhan reveals that 50 percent of patients also reported these symptoms – diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
2. Swelling of the testicles
A new study found that a 37-year-old man from Texas had pain in swollen testicles three days after being diagnosed with the corona virus. The scientists added that there are certain complications in the disease, including problems with blood clotting, which can lead to prolonged painful erections.
3. HAIR LOSS
This potentially troubling symptom was recently discovered when actress Alice Milano posted a photo on social media showing hair loss after an illness. Experts claim that it can happen all over the scalp and can be caused by stress, fever or illness. Fortunately, the characteristic of this phenomenon is that it is only short-lived.
4. QUARTERING THE EAR
The coronavirus virus can cause dizziness and tinnitus or tinnitus, which can last. Scientists are currently studying whether kovid-19 can cause complete hearing loss because it happens that this symptom may remain present long after all other symptoms have subsided.
5. SENSITIVITY TO THE SUN
Dr. Margo Gage, an epidemiologist, recently spoke about how she herself survived a six-month battle with the virus, and there were symptoms that are not on the lists we know. One of them is sensitivity to sunlight and explains that the reaction is similar to a sun allergy.
6. VISION PROBLEMS
“Kovid-19 can cause vision problems such as varicose veins, swollen eyelids, too much moisture and watery eyes,” they say at the Mayo Clinic. Mild sensitivity or irritation is also a possible symptom. These symptoms are more common in severe cases.
7. SKIN CHANGES
You may have heard of the term “kovid fingers,” which is more common in young people and is a common result of a viral infection when a person gets a rash or blemishes on the body. The condition can cause a small blockage or micro clot in the blood vessels on the fingers, which can cause skin discoloration and pain. Symptoms usually resolve within 12 days. Elderly patients have also reported skin changes such as rashes, blemishes or something similar to watery blisters.
According to a study called “KOVID symptoms,” this happens in 20 percent of cases, so experts are demanding that these conditions be included in the list of common symptoms.
8. NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS
Fog in the brain, confusion, or inability to concentrate often occur as symptoms in people who have had the disease. But because most people are ashamed to talk about them, they are rarely mentioned. In the fall, the results of a study were conducted in which it was stated that 55 percent of people diagnosed with covid-19 had problems with these and similar neurological problems three months after the disappearance of symptoms. For this reason, experts are very concerned that there could be an epidemic of brain damage as a result of the virus infection. Also worrying is the fact that these symptoms last for a long time.
It is an inflammation of the rib cartilage, that is, the cartilaginous joint between the ribs and the sternum, and can look like a heart attack. Severe chest pain occurs, which remains long after the onset of the first symptoms.
10. EXHAUST IN WAR
It occurs when the fungus Candida settles in the oral cavity and leaves white spots behind, and one study confirmed that 42 out of 1560 patients reported this symptom. It is possible that this is a weaker immune system due to virus infection developing uncontrollably.
NBC News published a report in the fall that doctors treating patients with kovid notice an unusual symptom in patients, which is insanity or delirium. This condition can be experienced by as many as 40 percent of patients in the hospital, and is more common in the elderly. The virus can attack the brain and thus cause the inflammation that is to blame for this symptom.
Ask yourself if you have noticed these symptoms to prevent the spread of the infection at all. Wear masks, test yourself if you think you are infected. Respect social distance, wash your hands, disinfect hard surfaces, writes Ordinacija.hr.
