Covid positive with digestive system problems

Edited , 1 user is following.


My symptoms started 5 days ago with runny nose, headache and fever. I went for the covid test and it came positive. My doctor prescribed a few medicines and these symptoms have gotten better now, though I still feel weakness, loss of taste, lack of hunger and occasional nausea. So, I am still using the medicine. The worrisome part is that I have developed constipation. My GI tract also seems weakened to force anything out. I have not defecated for five days now. So I am only using liquids and juices now. My doctor has prescribed me duphalac (lactulose) which I have taken for two days now, but still nothing. Anyone with the same problem and some advice?
