Covid-19 Unusual Symptoms which can be missed


The corona virus is a new strain of virus which has caused havoc globally. This started from Wuhan in China and is now taken over the world, for sure. This pandemic has managed to instill fear and insecurity in most people. Research and studies are, even now, being carried out to determine the different symptoms. All that is known is that this virus attacks the respiratory system and if not detected on time, can even lead to death. This is more dangerous for those having co-morbidities and those who are elderly.

The common symptoms of Covid-19 is cough, fever and breathlessness, but new symptoms have been detected and if you are not aware of this , these symptoms can be missed.

There are quite a few people who have presented less common symptoms of Covid-19. This includes diarrhea, nausea, delirium, lesions like chicken-pox and more. Knowing about these ‘less common’ symptoms can help you recognize if anyone is suffering from Covid-19.

Diarrhea, Vomiting or Nausea:

Research suggests that a gastro intestinal distress is relatively common in those suffering from Covid-19, though the CDC has not added this in their list of symptoms.

Loss of Smell or Taste:

The symptom of loss of taste or smell has been added in the list of symptoms of Covid-19 only recently by the CDC. The seasonal allergy or even flu can cause this loss of smell and taste. It is advisable to get yourself checked if you experience this symptom.

Muscle weakness, Dizziness, Delirium:

Besides delirium and confusion, there are other neurological symptoms present in some patients suffering from Covid-19. These symptoms appear in the early stages of the illness. There are few patients who have suffered from brain inflammation and required close monitoring.

Happy Hypoxia:

There are some patients who have low levels of oxygen in their blood which leads to reduction in consciousness but these patients have been unusually comfortable and alert. The clinicians have termed this as ‘happy hypoxia’. There is a mismatch in what is seen in the patient and what is observed on the monitor. According to scientists, this might be due to clotting of blood in the small vessels in the lungs.

Cardiovascular Complications:

There is a risk of abnormal clotting with Covid-19. When these clots are formed on the feet in the small blood vessels or other extremities, these can show minor symptoms. There are serious complications if there is blood clotting in the heart, brain or lungs. This can lead to stroke, heart attack or even pulmonary embolism.

If this virus enters the cells in the heart, this can lead to infections like myocarditis. This infection can cause heart rhythms that are abnormal, chest pain or heart failure.

It is important to increase the level of testing so that the patients suffering from this virus can be treated and the infection can be contained. There is no guarantee of safety unless testing is increased and the affected people are isolated.
