Time for another thread about #longHaulCovid:

People also don't seem to grasp that even if it doesn't kill you it can wreck your life. I became sick in March with it and have been ill every day now for 267 days straight. I experience dizziness, weakness, extreme fatigue, nausea
diarrhea, pain, memory problems, rashes, heart palpitations, dvt episodes, and GERD. I can't smell or taste anything. My scans show damage to my lungs, liver, heart, brain, and gut consistent with #COVID damage. Two of my teeth broke after having the fever rigors. Cuomo did too.
I was never admitted to the hospital even when I was coughing up blood & collapsing because my oxygen levels were always relatively good, even though breathing now feels like sucking air through a straw. No one can say if it will ever go away or if this is it forever now.

1/ Most indicative of my ignorance as a young ICU doc in 1990 was my off-service note for a 28 year old w/ PROFOUND post-ARDS #PICS: “However, amazingly enough, she still manifests only single organ damage (lungs) w/ good renal, GI, & CV fxn.”

Apparently, neither her brain nor neuromuscular system were on my 🧠radar, because both organ systems were newly, severely, & permanently diseased as I penned that statement. Beware now in #COVID

By the way, of course, I showed that note 📝 and use this patient’s example with written permission from her son who wants others to learn from the experience of his mother.
