I had horrible burping and nausea (but I was hungry). About a month ago stomach pains started. Turns out, I have a stomach ulcer, which I’m sure the long Covid had a part in.

I have been nauseous the entire time( which will be 4 months on January 5th). I am having to force myself to eat & have lost 20 pounds. I hated ginger prior to COVID but now am on my 4th box of ginger tea.

Yes, I had almost constant nausea and lots of digestive issues. Based on what I learned from this blog and related articles, I tried various foods and strategies and kept notes. I started out on what was basically the BRAT diet plus baked chicken and chicken broth. The items I gradually added that worked for me are Phillips Colon Health probiotics, goat yogurt, goat milk (I used to drink lactose free milk but that started to upset my stomach). Then I gradually added back the healthy foods I used to eat such as Kellogg's All Bran cereal, oatmeal, eggs, salmon, meats, fresh fruits & vegetables and moved away from the rice, applesauce and toast. Hope this helps.

Anyone lose their appetite totally? If my appetite doesn’t trigger to eat and if i forget to eat, I can go a couple of days without it. Not sure if I are today. Lost 60 pounds. , which isn’t healthy.

Very discouraging. Have had every procedure and lab done deducted to long COVID.
