Help! Anyone with Post COVID get infected again?
Hello! Newbie here. Here’s a little backstory:
COVID April 2020
Moderna vaccine Jan-March 2021
COVID May 17, 2022
Other neuro history: concussion July 2020; balance issues and numbness / tingling post pardum in 2008. Tested for MS but nothing showed up.
March of 2021 was the start of me slowly declining. My diagnosis came in the fall after many tests and consults, as a diagnosis of exclusion really, as we were all just starting to hear about long COVID. Cognitive issues, hearing issues, balance issues, ears ringing, sensitivity to heat where it felt like my ears would fill up and I’d get confused/ acted drunk with slurred speech. I got weaker and weaker. Couldn’t drive, I’d hit a few things it was crazy. I’d walk into my daughters volleyball game and get completely overloaded sensory wise and feel as if I was losing my balance. I’d get quiet snd confused. Numbness and tingling. Very very slow processing.
The recovery from COVID again has been scary. I was given the anti viral which helped me recover symptom wise acutely but the fatigue as bd brain fog has been awful. I’m back to work with shorter days and slowly trying to get it together. But now symptoms of last summer are slowly creeping back in. Headaches, ear/ jaw pain, I fell on Sunday. My legs just have out. My legs are burning and weak walking the halls at work. My breathing is a little better but I still have trouble.
I’m trying to get an appointment at a long COVID clinic. This is all so scary. Any tips/ advice?
Since last year I’m on some supplements to boost my immunity. 2 inhalers. 3 medications for heart/ blood pressure. And now I feel like I took one step forward snd 2 steps back.
Has anyone had long haulers twice?
Has anyone experienced it after the vaccine?
