Almost 8 weeks I’ve been ill. It started with a bit of a tight chest, no cough, no temperature. A couple of days later and my chest started to feel raw and sore just assumed i had a virus ....probably covid. My chest started to burn constantly all day long the burning lasted 3.5 weeks. Then sharp pains felt like it was flipping from one side of my chest to the other, also felt like the burning went down to my tummy area. Shortness of breath begun day 7. Sometimes it was so bad I had to really concentrate on my breathing to catch my breath. Also my heart rate has been through the roof as soon as I move, walk a little it goes really high like I’m fast walking/jogging etc 145bpm feel dizzy. Week 2 started with the hot night sweats! Waking up like I’m on fire. Sweating awful Body odour-I don’t suffer with this normally. Still having the hot sweats week 7... every night. Also had facial flushing and have had a temp on and off for 6 weeks. headaches and body aches I was given antibiotics after 3 weeks Incase. I went to the hospital as the doctors said it couldn’t be covid as it was going on too long. I had a chest X-ray that was clear. Sent home. I wondered if the virus has caused some sort of gastric issues and that the burning is due to severe acid reflux. Something I’ve NEVER suffered from only when pregnant. I’m now on Omeprazole 40g for 2 weeks. The burning and pain in my back has eased. I’m now left with the some chest pains but the high heart rate upon walking around my house has not gone away nor has the acute breathlessness. Has anyone had high heart rate, severe gastric issues eg oesophagitus and shortness of breath , hot sweats with this illness? Can’t take much more of this. im 39 on no meds no heath condtions usually active mum of 4!
