Possibly/pulmonary: A virtual consultation is available. If you had a chest image initially, please discuss a follow up imaging study. If there is cough/wheezing and shortness of breath as a result of bronchospasm, Albuterol may be helpful in your management. Avoid caffeine and please see your PCP. There are cases of post COVID cardiac disease, and this should be evaluated. Have a flu vaccine.

Co-morbidities: Many varied post-acute syndromes are being reported due to involvement of blood vessels. Here I would be careful re. Cardiac arrythmias and suggest Holter monitor also.
