Winning Smaller Battles Post COVID 19 Infection

If you are recovering from COVID 19 or returned home from the hospital, you will face smaller battles every day until you get back to your routine life. During and after COVID-19 treatment, you may experience some symptoms such as:

  • Low energy levels and early fatigue
  • Difficulty in breathing, and becoming breathless with even a little bit of physical activity.
  • Chest Congestion and excessive phlegm.
  • Cough with phlegm
  • Loss of appetite and altered taste in mouth
  • Headaches
  • Lack of concentration
  • Anxiety and Fear
  • Insomnia

Some of the symptoms will get better on their own, as time passes. Other symptoms will require patience and efforts from your side. However, the actual recovery may take a much longer time.

People with serious complications need ICU care and ventilator support for breathing, which can take a toll on their physical as well as mental health in the longer run. In many cases, the person may need assistance to breathe even after coming off a ventilator. The patient may need a mask or a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) ventilator at home, which would provide the required oxygen support.
