COVID-19 can have long-term effects that people may have missed if they did not confirm their original diagnosis with a doctor.
We have been in the ebb and flow of the COVID-19 pandemic since early 2020. The disease has altered our lives, to the point where it looks like a 2019 world, without worrying about face masks, travel and COVID-19 variants. almost unthinkable.
Over the past two years, people may have contracted COVID-19 and then received their vaccines, or may have been vaccinated and then taken COVID-19, or any of those in order.
It is also possible that people may have had COVID-19 without knowing it. In fact, many of them may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 long without knowing that they are related to the disease. Because some of these symptoms are so rare, it is understandable not to connect them to a virus that is considered primarily respiratory. These people may no longer be treated with COVID-19 virus, but they may still have debilitating symptoms.
Here are three of the most common and worrisome symptoms that suggest that you have had COVID-19 and are dealing with its long-term symptoms:

They just don’t go back to normal energy or the normal feeling of good health,” he said. This condition worsens when people are exposed to other people’s physical and mental stress, but unlike other forms of fatigue, it does not improve when people rest and sleep.
Another common side effect of long COVID is muscle aches and pains, also known as myalgia. This pain is severe and can be confused with other conditions, such as a stretched muscle or even a heart attack when the pain is located in the chest area.
