My initial illness was January 2020. I'm finally feeling better 4yrs later. After 4-5 rounds of antibiotics, the last 3 rounds were Doxycycline I'm finally feeling better. Symptoms are fewer and further between occurrence as well as less severe.
The antibiotics were for secondary issues related with COVID. Doxycycline was my requested drug because I know it treats Gram positive & Gram negative infections.
Arthritis although x-rays negative. Blood tests also negative
Deep muscle pain
And? And ….
Treatment month one: bruises make me look like a cheetay
Myalgia getting better
Another 11 Months to go
I'm so sorry for your experience having long covid. I'm wondering what your symptoms were before you were diagnosed? Thank you for sharing please stay strong and get well.
I've finally had someone confirm that I suffer from "Long Covid". None of the local doctors and specialists acknowledge the fact, and treated my symptoms - none of the treatments worked. All x-rays and blood tests also came back negative.
When the new guy (Dr Jaco Laubscher, Stellenbosch, S.Africa) explained how long covid works, I was so **grateful** to find out that I'm not a hypochondriac. Because It's almost two years since I had covid, he says the healing will take at least 12 months.
"Long Covid is an endothelial disease caused by the Covid 19 virus. The endothelium is the innermost cellular lining of the blood vessels, and it is this layer that becomes affected in Long Covid."
I have a pdf document that I would like to attach, but don't know.
I'm being treated with blood thinners because my blood had "irregularities".
I've had Long Covid since July 2020. I'm grateful for my walker. Used it the first time going to the mall today. I'm worried that my symptoms are just getting worse.
