Welcome, Greg. I moved your question about gastro symptoms post-COVID to this existing discussion that @sieb369 started called "Covid Recovery: How can I manage GI issues?" https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/covid-recovery-and-gi-pain/

I did this so you can connect with Sieb and others talking about GI symptoms like @ineedanswers38 @tschumpers5 @luisa22 and @lauriekh

If you are also dealing with nausea, check out this related discussion:
– Has anyone had nausea with the coronavirus or post-COVID? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/coronavirus-2/

Greg, what symptoms are you experiencing? Do any foods trigger the issues or help?

Hi Greg I too have been experiencing gastrointestinal issues, I have had diarrhea at least twice a week and also a lot of gas. Even if I dnt eat anything hours before I go to bed I still wake up feeling very bloated and stomach hard and gassy.

Thank you for your help, Colleen, greatly appreciated. Triggers have been hard to pinpoint since the symptoms are so frequent. Anything spicy is likely a trigger and one that might be a trigger, that I am curious about, is refined sugar. Symptoms: abdominal pain and burning, diarrhea, disorientation, lightheadedness, some fatigue, and headaches. Thankfully, the intensity of the headaches has greatly diminished! During my initial infection, and first two months after, the headaches and eyeball aches were very bad. Thanks again, Greg
