See your doctor NOW: We are just learning about the COVID "long-haulers" who have recurrent or lingering symptoms. While many viruses can trigger autoimmune issues, we are not sure how COVID-19 works. Please go back to your provider ASAP! And then stay in close touch with that office

COVID 19.: Agree with Dr. Herbert in that there are a number of people who have lingering symptoms or sometimes worsening symptoms after a COVID 19 infection. Many doctors are now recommeding post - Covid medical assessments for those people.Get urgent care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, persistent significant chest pain/ pressure or new onset confusion.

Tachycardia: If your resting heart rate is persistently around 120 beats per minute, this is decidedly abnormally rapid. Causes are many & include fever, cardiac arrhythmia other than simple sinus tachycardia, overactive thyroid, inflammatory processes, anemia, certain medications including components of allergy medications. See your physician for evaluation & an EKG in view of rapid heart rate&chest pains
