Anyone else have simultaneous Covid and Influenza?
Cases of simultaneous Covid and Influenza infection were news in January 2022 (I think) as if it were something new, but I tested positive for both in February/March 2021 and I can't imagine I was the first. Fifteen months later, I'm still struggling with severe, debilitating long-term effects — all the "greatest hits" everyone mentions plus heart, brain, and possibly kidney issues (still testing). And I gained about 50 pounds. I'm a 50yo male with what I would call an unremarkable medical history until Covid/Influenza happened.
A successful heart ablation procedure in Oct 2021 alleviated the more than 10,000 PVCs/day that were triggered by the primary illness. But other than that procedure, it was difficult to get any doctor to pay attention until rather recently. Now I'm seeing my regular doctor, as well as a cardiologist, neurologist, pulmonologist, ENT specialist, psychiatrist, physical therapist, and soon a speech/cognitive therapist. I'm grateful to finally be on their radar at least, but so far they have no answers and they've yet to offer any solutions that improve my miserable quality of life.
If anyone else on this forum had simultaneous Covid/Influenza, what's your post-illness experience been like and how are you doing now?
