Over the last two years we’ve heard all of the symptoms that pop up and sometimes stay with Covid-19 — waves of fatigue, inability to smell anything, a racing heartbeat, and more. Although they aren’t as debilitating as the long Covid-19 symptoms that can leave people bedridden or unable to perform daily functions, it’s still common for these symptoms to take weeks or months to fully recover, and some have coined it “medium Covid”.
WHYY reporter, Nina Feldman, experienced Covid-19 symptoms that persisted into what she calls, “medium covid”. She, like so many other Americans, contracted Covid over Christmas — although she was vaccinated and boosted. Her symptoms were mild, that of a sore throat, sinus pressure, headache, and fatigue. By the eighth day, she as feeling better and soon tested negative. In the weeks that followed, Feldman experienced lingering symptoms; a heavy chest, extreme fatigue, weakened muscles. These symptoms lasted for about six more weeks before she started to feel like herself again.
