Will feel great. . . short lived. . . poof it's gone!
I see another member posted the same experience, ditto for me on several occasions and then poof. . . it's gone! I just don't get it.
I have Covid twice, or maybe even 3 times. At this point, I'm extremely ill and barely surviving and down to 89 lbs. All one and scared. Brain isn't functioning at 100% anymore. . . sorry if I have any typo's here. I left a voicemail for a new Dr. yesterday and they said I didn't live my cell number for call back, but theirs!
Over 3 yrs ago, when my Doc told me it's anxiety/depression (of course – always go-to answer) I took Escitalopram and about 2 weeks later I remember waking up and felt fabulous started to gain a few lbs and even went back into the office. Got on my knees and thank or Dear Lord. Unfortunately, that was short-lived and I went back to feeling very ill again with new and worse symptoms each and every month.
I just don't get it. Why would we feel better for days or even weeks, then we take numerous steps back only to feel much worse and get more symptoms?
Has anyone else experienced this? I'm sure stress played a big part, because Doctors don't believe what we're experiencing.
I'm now at the stage with no medical help whatsoever, Docs don't know what to do, since many tests turn out fine, including Mayo, I feel so very dizzy, lightheaded and weak, like I could faint, I have periods where I experience derealization, like my brain isn't functioning and I'll go into a sweat and panic PTSD like feeling, especially if I just try to lay down and rest. I have the terrible internal vibrations and shakiness, I found out I need surgery for a hernia which they can't do due to my extreme weight loss and current health and risk involved. Hernia is in the groin area and burns and hurts so bad.
If I go to the emergency room, they just send me home. Notes will show all tests (except for hernia) are fine, all Docs say it's anxiety, or the don't know why to treat LT Covid . Even when I asked my PCP at Northwestern University in Illinois to PLEASE help and admit me to the hospital about 2 yrs ago, they kept me there only 1 day, did an MRI and kicked me out.
