COVID and Stroke
Knowing that a common symptom of the COVID virus is blood clots, how often is this symptom present? [%] Knowing the new mutations [Delta and others] are more powerful & contagious, how much more likely are they to present blood clots?
I have had 3 TIAs for which my doctors have no explanation. I do not have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, definitely NOT overweight, no diabetes, heart disease or AFib [a fib is being looked for/monitored – three years]. What WAS discovered: I have a PFO [hole in my heart] which allowed the blood clots to cause the 3 TIAs. I am unable to find any mention on line or information from my doctors of the degree of danger this condition presents in regards to COVID. I have been in solitary isolation since March 2020 and remain so. I am otherwise in very good health, and at age 78 I am still working, teaching active stretching classes via ZOOM. Any information regarding the dangers regarding my situation will be appreciated.
