GASTRIC SYMPTOMS COVID 19

Edited , 5 users are following.

Sorry if this is a daft question, but has anyone tested positive for covid 19 where digestive symptoms were main symptoms? I have been ill now for over a week with SEVERE abdominal p pain and severe diarrhea. Seems to be a 3 days cycle - start to get better then after day 3 am back to square one - feel as though I am trapped in a revolving door.

    I feel the exact same way. I am on day 9. I have no other symptoms except abdominal pain and diarrhea. My symptoms initially started with me feeling bloated. I had a pain in the top center of my stomach, which I thought was gas. Diarrhea and nausea followed, but the nausea only lasted about 3 days. The pain in my stomach is all over the place. sometimes its at the top of my stomach and other times it in the lower part. Super similar to menstrual cramps. The intensity and timing of the pain is all over the place. Outside of the gatric symptoms, I am completely fine. No cough, sore throat, fever, body aches and my breathing is fine. I'm beyond ready to feel normal again. Just know you're not alone.

      hi Tasha-I could have just written your entry above. my symptoms are so very similar. How are you feeling now? How long did your symptoms last? Wondering if you developed any respiratory or other symptoms? feel better! God bless!

    i started to have awful Gi issues starting in april along with severe headache, fatigue, and dizziness. After a week i took a covid test that was negative but i continued to be sick for 2 months. My illness was up and down during the day and from day to day. for a few hours i felt better then the next hour i was worse than before. i never got tested again foe covid but im not sure what else would keep me sick for so long. i still am still dealing with diarrhea to this day and i cant get answers from doctors. there is not much research about covid with only GI symptoms. im glad to know other people feel the same!
