What Experiences With Covid Are Patient’s Having

What Experiences With Covid Are Patient’s Having

Want to know if PD got worse after recovering from Covid

Hello. Having Covid exasperated my symptoms and now my off periods come sooner. Definitely still have the fatigue and it's been about 5 weeks since I had it

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member, you still have symptoms-wow! I did really well. It was thought the pneumonia scared my lungs because I need oxygen whenever I lay down, but the damage is on the outside of my lungs;; it is part of the dysautonomia. The muscles are weak. I hope you regain some strength; with PD the last you need is permanent loss of energy and acquired fatigue to slow you down. You’re in my prayers.
Hugs 🤗

I had no trouble recovering except I now use oxygen with my Bipap machine; it helps my headaches. I had it before the vaccine was available and because of a medication I take I have been advised to not take it. I’ve had repeated exposures to others getting sick with no problems.

We are boosted but still worry about my husband’s symptoms getting worse if he gets it. Did you have the vaccine when you got it? Thank you and I hope you get back to your baseline.

Hello Danish,
After a serious bout with Covid, my right hand started shaking and it has been over a year and there are days that I get that covid fatigue. Lol
So yes I think it affects each of us differently, however I was worse after covid.
Best and God Bless you and family.
