Has anyone lost strength in the trunk of their body due to Covid?Also loss of signals of belly being full or food going down in belly?

Yes, I think it's from all the inflammation in my trunk, that so far no doctor or accuupuntirst can help without causing an increase in the sweats.

Thankyou so much for replying.I tried Acupuncture hoping it would help a little to and it did not.Maybe just time.No conventional Doctor I have seen has seen anything like it.
Yes. Often I either don't have signals for appetite, or signals that I'm full.
My posture has gotten slumpy from loss of torso tone, weakness. I wake up in the night with my whole torso cold even though all the rest of my body is perfectly warm.
Isn't this weird!
Yes!Thankyou for responding!My posture is slumpy as well.My walking is not normal because I just don't have the strength in my nidsection and my diaphram is mooshy as well.I don't have the muscles and nerves I use too.I barely get signals to go to the bathroom either.The doctors just have no idea.The only thing they found with my spine was minor spinal stenosis and scoliosis in my pelvis and my neck is perfectly straight.We are supposed to have some curvature in the neck.Has any Doctor been able to give you any answers?Did you happen to have covid before it came on?I just don't know if this was brought on from the Iron infusion,covid or autoimmune.
Finally am enrolling in the pain clinic. The stabbing brutal pains in my legs at night make me cry out they are so bad! I am so tired of being sick so tired of hurting so tired of all the weird symptoms !!
My Covid was Feb,2020.
Never got smell/taste back. BrainFog & long list of symptoms bagan. My aerobics class was closed pandemic. I began losing normal walking&posture June2121. Weakness&fatigue became pronounced.
Saw specialists/many tests. No help. Patient@MayoCovid Clinic Feb2023.much support, no cures.
This sounds pretty similar to what I have.I did not have issues with smell/taste,but weird breathing,dizziness and a bunch of other weird symptoms.I thought it was the infusion,but it had to have been covid.I was really active as well.I went to the gym all the time,but started walking on the Bike trail.I noticed on my long walks on the Bike trail that my body was not going to allow it anymore.It got to the point where I could only walk slumped over.You would think that I had a very bad case of scoliosis,but nothing severe is showing up on the xrays.If I meet with any Doctors that have a clue of what this could be I will let you know.
I am so sorry.I know how you feel though.I have the weirdest symptoms and no doctor knows what is going on.I pray that the pain clinic helps you.
Immediately after Covid. It's be a year and I'm still swollen.weak in trunk. My core is strong when I excersice 3 days a week and collapses in between
Yrs!When I exercise is is not as bad too,but than collapses after as well.My belly is also huge.I guess that has to do with whatever is going on.It is so hard to describe unless someone is going through it themselves.
