Lingering symptoms after 3 weeks - stomach pains/nausea

Edited , 10 users are following.

I had a postive test over 3 weeks ago, symptoms started with a cough, aches and pains the loss of taste and smell came on about day 5/6 , also had a feeling of nausea constantly

im 3 weeks on now and just not feeling better at all . The nausea is still there, along with abdominal pains now, and dizziness. Also had a sore chest/tightness, in which the doctor sent me the hospital, they done an ecg, chest xray, and bloods . All came back clear!

Has anyone else suffered with stomach pains, or nausea after having covid? Its really getting me down now as I just feel so unwell everyday !

    I was tested positive on the 31st My symptoms were overwhelming waves of nausea and I felt so ill at times I wondered if I wanted to live. I still have occasional nausea and pains in my stomach and am frightened to eat sometimes. Everyone says it will go away eventuallly and that it is only time. I would be interested to know how you are going on. another thing that Covid brings is skin problems and I am having these in spades. trying to keep positive.

    Im much the same the nausea is the worst at the minute, the pains in stomach have only started a couple of days ago, feeling shaky at times, just feel like theres no end to it at all!

      Hi Linda, yes I empathise with you, its awful. My symptoms are similar to yours. For some reason mine are worse at night. Sleep is very poor and anxiety levels from worrying dont help. Do you take vitamin D supplements at all? Just curious as I have heard Vit. D3 may help prevent symptoms getting worse. NHS defines long covid after the symptoms last for longer than 12 weeks after symptoms first started.

      No charles I have not been taking any vitamin D, I shall try that. I also dont really have a problem sleeping either. My main issue is a sore chest, some days are worse than others. im into week four now , and really hoping it will get better soon, couldnt stand feeling like this for 12 weeks or longer!!

      Sorry to hear youre suffering still Linda, lets hope we get a break from this soon and recover well. I find its always difficult to think positively when I have bad symptoms. Regarding the Vitamin D, if you have access to youtube, the title of the video is : Mr David Davis MP and Vitamin D. He talks with Dr. John Campbell , so worth a watch. Its a bit boring to start with but once five minutes in, we get more interesting information about Vitamin D. It helped my somewhat about how high to dose with Vitamin D.

    Hi Linda, yes I can certainly empathise with you there. Some days I feel almost normal, then it all starts over again. Lets hope in time the symptoms will start to become less and less. Thanks for sharing.

    hi linda75236 me and my husband caught covid around the 7 th jan got tested on the 10th the first week we thought we will get the bad flu symptons lots of drinks etc and we will get over this, well by the second week we were likes ghosts. then in my case the nausea started that was hell . it stopped me sleeping if i could just puke and get it over with but it was not happening . i was precribed three different types of anti sickness tablets . ice lollies helped . now its the 27th and after a bout of tummy aches i am now quite constipated . also i feel like i still have a low grade fever low energy but by the afternoon I am good for nothing. i kept asking the doctor if anything else is going on here? but they said its another covid symptom ? so i was interested in finding this thread, other people with similar symptoms and have they fully recovered yet ? I am expected to go back to work on the checkouts in a few days but if you ask me in the morning when i get up i would say i feel a bit better but a few hours in and I am exhausted . any one else on sick leave ? thanks sue

      Hi Sue, I was due back in work 11th Jan, (finished isolating the 8th) but Im just not well enough for it, I have been signed off until 31st, doctor said if im no better, I have to ring them back and speak to them again. Im like you, can wake up in the morning and feel ok, but by afternoon, im feeling like crap again, been for a short walk today, and ive never felt so bad, feeling nauseous and shaky. My chest is still quite sore too. cant see any end to it at all!

      hi linda75236 how are you feeling I have another week sick note I still feel under the weather . i work on a busy checkout, I feel i would last a shift at the moment . trouble is I hate time off as I feel work isnt very sympathetic when I ring and I am sure others recovered quicker . I remember years ago i had a blocked bile duct which felt a bit like this , that got better by itself. the reason I mention this is my stools are very pale . anyone else have this ?

      Hi Sue, Im much the same, I have the odd times when I feel ok, but most of the time Im generally just feeling unwell, the last few days have not been good, spoke to my doctor yesterday, hes signed me off for another 2 weeks, to be honest I dont think they know what to do really , and I feel like they dont even want to see you, they just put everything down to covid and told me it can take weeks/months to recover and everyones recovery is different. just feel at a loss, sick of feeling unwell.. I hope your feeling better soon.
