Hi all just wondering if anyone experiencing worse fatigue since getting covid? My fatigue for the last 6 months has been a lot worse since catching covid and been getting light headed and dizziness to also a smokey burning smell in my sinuses too, got blood test done a few weeks back as it was all driving me a bit crazy! So after get a second appointment on it all from a different Gp my test all came back normal (Again) I'm not sure all this is post covid systems more like my condition giving me more of a had time it's exhausting and if you pop the questions to your GP they just play it done and I think they are now using covid side affects as excuses to brush past the very fact you have fibromyalgia!

Take care all best wishes

I had mild covid Dec 21,and since my fatigue and energy levels have been much worse. Like you, I also experienced dizziness (had it occasionally prior to covid but been much worse since) and also had high blood pressure that I'm now on meds to control.

100%. I have Long Covid and my fatigue is over the roof. I do not have a choice but drag my legs with force to do my basic day to day activities

It’s so damn hard. Wishing you pain free days
