You may have been ill with Covid-19 and not known about it: unobvious symptoms of coronavirus infection
Coronavirus infection is often manifested with minor symptoms, which is why many people do not go to the doctor. Writes about this RBC.
This disease can be asymptomatic or, in its signs, be similar to seasonal SARS. Therefore, people who have been ill with COVID-19 can be much more than official statistics say. Some specific symptoms may indicate that you have already suffered coronavirus.
So, according to scientists from the University of Oxford, there are five “mild” symptoms (without fever, dry cough and chills), which may indicate that this is a coronavirus.
Loss of smell
One of the most common symptoms of the disease is loss of smell. This data was confirmed by scientists from all over the world. As the scientists found out, some cells in the nose contain proteins that the SARS-CoV-2 strain hits in the first place. This is how the infection enters the body. Such people become “excellent” carriers of the infection, as they often do not realize that they are sick.
In some patients, abdominal pain may be an independent symptom. But sometimes it can mean the development of pneumonia in the lower lobes of the lungs. Therefore, this symptom should be taken carefully.
Such a symptom was identified by research by Chinese scientists. So, in Wuhan, half of the first 204 patients examined had this symptom.
Some patients with COVID-19 showed mild follicular conjunctivitis. It can be expressed in bloodshot eyes, burning in the eye area, accumulation of pus that sticks to the eyelashes, itching in the eyes.
A feeling of unusually intense fatigue can also be a symptom of a coronavirus. It is worth paying attention to this symptom if this feeling is not the result of overwork.
