New symptoms: doctors have reported frequent cases of atypical course of COVID-19
Doctors report new symptoms among young people with a positive result for coronavirus. Some of them did not have a traditional fever for COVID-19, but other manifestations were observed, atypical for most previously recorded cases, writes Daily voice.
The most obvious symptom of COVID-19 - fever - was largely absent in people between the ages of 20 and 30. That being said, doctors across the country working in states with peak coronavirus cases have reported many times that young patients experience abdominal pain.
When the United States pandemic was just beginning, abdominal pain was not considered a defining symptom of the disease.
Headache - another symptom that's increasingly seen now - was also not on the original list of symptoms reported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Some young people who have recently become ill have reported suffering from "debilitating migraines."
“There are headaches that aren't always controlled by pain relievers like acetaminophen,” said Dr. Karen Landers of the Alabama Department of Health.
A preliminary study suggests that more than 80% of people aged 20 and younger may not have any symptoms after being infected with coronavirus.
The study was conducted by the Bruno Kessler Foundation in Trento, Italy, in collaboration with the ATS Lombardy COVID-19 task force and other initiatives.
According to the CDC, the symptoms of COVID-19 usually appear 2-14 days after infection with the virus.
The CDC now lists the following symptoms of the disease:
- fever or chills;
- shortness of breath or shortness of breath;
- muscle and body pain;
- loss of taste or smell (if not before the illness);
- a sore throat;
- runny or stuffy nose;
- nausea or vomiting
The CDC says that if a person has at least one of the following symptoms, you should immediately seek emergency medical help:
- labored breathing;
- persistent pain or pressure in the chest;
- confusion (if not before the disease);
- a person cannot be awakened or has difficulty staying awake;
- bluish or bluish tint of the lips or face.
