COVID Symptoms, Headache and fatigue

  • COVID Symptoms, Headache and fatigue



    Headache and Fatigue

    Dark Horses of COVID Symptoms

    Most commonly experienced early symptoms are:

    Headache, 82%

    Fatigue 72%

    This is the case for all age groups

    9% of COVID-positive adults aged 18 - 65 didn’t experience headache or fatigue

    1% of people who reported fatigue and/or headache tested positive for COVID

    3% of people who tested positive had headache and fatigue alone


    Having either or both of those symptoms alone is unlikely to be indicative of COVID.

    The Classic Three are Still Key

    Cough, fever, loss of smell

    40% of all age groups, fever in the first seven days

    People with COVID-19 may be short of breath, have a cough, fever, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, chills, fatigue, runny nose or congestion or loss of taste or smell. Sometimes, people may throw up, get diarrhea, or their stomach may hurt.

    Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

    Talk to a doctor, a local clinic, or use the screening tool on the Minnesota COVID-19 Response website to help decide if you should get tested. (

  • Recognizing Day to Day Signs and Symptoms of Coronavirus


    Before proceeding, please note that this general overview is compiled for initial self-assessment only and may vary for each individual. If you're not feeling well, you should immediately consult a medical practitioner to have an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of COVID-19.
    The typical daily symptoms are concluded from the study of 138 patients at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University and another study involving 135 patients from Jinyintan Hospital and 56 patients from Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital.
    These symptoms are broken down into:
    DAY 1 TO DAY 2
    The beginning symptoms are similar to the common cold with a mild sore throat and neither having a fever nor feeling tired. Patients can still consume food and drink as usual.
    DAY 3
    The patient's throats start to feel a bit painful. Body temperature reads at around 36.5° celsius. Although it's uncommon, other symptoms like mild nausea, vomiting or mild diarrhea are possible to set in.
    DAY 4
    Throat pain becomes more serious. Other symptoms like feeling weak and joint pain start to manifest. The patient may show a temperature reading between 36.5° to 37° celsius.
    DAY 5 TO 6
    Mild fever starts. The patients show a temperature reading above 37.2° celsius. The second most common symptom, dry cough, also appears. Dyspnea or breathing difficulty may occur occasionally. Most patients in this stage are easily feeling tired. Other symptoms remain about the same. These four symptoms are among the top five key indications of COVID-19 according to the final report of the initial outbreak conducted by the joint mission of China and WHO.
    DAY 7
    The patients that haven't started recovering by day 7 get more serious coughs and breathing difficulty. Fever can get higher up to 38° celsius. Patients may develop further headache and body pain or worsening diarrhea if there’s any. Many patients are admitted to the hospital at this stage.
    DAY 8 TO 9
    On the 8th day, the symptoms are likely to be worsened for the patient who has coexisting medical conditions. Severe shortness of breath becomes more frequent. Temperature reading goes well above 38°. In one of the studies, day 9 is the average time when Sepsis starts to affect 40% of the patients.
    DAY 10 TO 11
    Doctors are ordering imaging tests like chest x-ray to capture the severity of respiratory distress in patients. Patients are having loss of appetite and may be facing abdominal pain. The condition also needs immediate treatment in ICU.
    DAY 12 TO 14
    For the survivors, the symptoms can be well-managed at this point. Fever tends to get better and breathing difficulties may start to cease on day 13. But Some patients may still be affected by mild cough even after hospital discharge.
    DAY 15 TO 16
    Day 15 is the opposite condition for the rest of the minority patients . The fragile group must prepare for the possibility of acute cardiac injury or kidney injury.
    DAY 17 TO 19
    COVID-19 fatality cases happen at around day 18. Before the time, vulnerable patients may develop a secondary infection caused by a new pathogen in the lower respiratory tract. The severe condition may then lead to a blood coagulation and ischemia.
    DAY 20 TO 22
    The surviving patients are recovered completely from the disease and are discharged from the hospital.

  • Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast: ‘COVID fatigue’ fueling a rise in cases


    With the COVID-19 pandemic entering a tenth month, experts says adherence to public health measures appears to be waning in some parts of the country. COVID fatigue, meaning failing to comply with masking, hand hygiene and physical distancing guidelines, has fueled a resurgence in COVID-19 cases in more than half of the U.S. states.

    On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, discusses the rising number of COVID-19 cases and how vaccine experts in science and industry are working together in unprecedented ways.

    COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, affects people in many ways. Early symptoms have included fever, cough and chills. The list of symptoms in people with confirmed COVID-19 disease has expanded since early reports of the disease. We're learning more about the virus and more about the syndrome that it causes as people have become infected with it, says Dr. Stacey Rizza, a Mayo Clinic infectious disease specialist and researcher.

  • Mayo Clinic doctor explains what is known about post-Covid syndrome


    Many people with Covid-19 experience a bad cough or a fever, but some Covid patients are experiencing long-term effects after contracting the virus. This is impacting their ability to go back to work. Greg Vanichkachorn, occupational medicine specialist at the Mayo Clinic, joined Squawk Box on Wednesday to discuss what doctors are calling post-Covid syndrome. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Coronavirus patients who develop “post-Covid syndrome” brain fog and fatigue — often referred to as “long haulers” — may feel the effects for more than a year, according to a Mayo Clinic doctor studying the phenomenon.

    Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn, an occupational medicine specialist, told CNBC in a phone interview Wednesday that he won’t be “too shocked” if some Covid-19 long-haulers were to experience a similar, lengthy recovery trajectory as some sufferers of severe acute respiratory syndrome. SARS, a respiratory virus similar to the novel coronavirus, sparked an epidemic in 2003.

    Long-hauler SARS patients back then improved, “but it took quite a bit of time, sometimes even more than a year for them to recover their function,” he told “Squawk Box” on earlier Wednesday.

    There are considerable knowledge gaps among researchers about what causes certain Covid-19 patients to have lingering symptoms, Vanichkachorn said. While the percentage of people who get sick with Covid-19 and go on develop post-Covid syndrome also remains unknown, he stressed that it’s “not something that is rare.”

    At the Rochester, Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic, where he and his colleagues created a rehab program for Covid-19 survivors, Vanichkachorn said he has seen more than 100 long-hauler patients.

    “I can’t say there’s a genetic basis for the differences in the outcomes,” he said. “We, of course, have seen patients who have had more severe cases of Covid, like those patients being in the ICU or the hospital or patients of advanced age, being more likely to come down with post-Covid syndrome.”

    ″[But] I think one of the real startling things about this is that those kind of patients, hospitalized patients or the elderly, don’t make up the majority of the patients we have been seeing,” he added. “In fact, many of the patients we are seeing are younger in age and are quite healthy and physically fit before their Covid infection. So unfortunately, it does seem like this is something anybody can come down with after their infection.”

    Short-term memory issues and concentration challenges are common symptoms experienced by post-Covid patients, Vanichkachorn said, also adding shortness of breath to the list.

    The most-common symptom, however, is fatigue, he said. “It’s not just like any fatigue, like the fatigue we get from a bad night of sleep but rather profound fatigue.” He explained, “Patients will say that doing something as simple as taking a dog for a walk, going up a flight of steps in their home, can often result in them needing to take a nap or a rest for several hours afterwards.”

    People who develop post-Covid syndrome can often be stigmatized, particularly from individuals who may have recovered from Covid-19 quickly, Vanichkachorn said. However, he stressed that people who have symptoms for months should not be blamed for their condition.

    Vanichkachorn advised patients to be careful as they recover from Covid-19, saying that “doing too much, too quickly” can ultimately be detrimental. “Their recovery may be longer and if they are too tired or fatigued, they really need to listen to their bodies and pace themselves,” he said.

  • Fatigue, headache most common Covid-19 symptoms in children: study


    Fever, fatigue and headache are the most common symptoms associated with Covid-19 in children, while a few may show a developing cough and may lose their sense of smell or taste, a new study has found. Researchers at King's College London stated that there is an urgent need for people to know the key symptoms at different ages, rather than a blanket approach. For the study, the team looked 198 children who were positive out of 16,000 tested. More than half of the symptomatic children had fatigue, 54% had a headache and half of them showed a fever. A relatively smaller proportion had a sore throat, skin rash or diarrhoea. In contrast, most common symptoms in adults were a persistent cough, loss of smell, sore throat, fever and headache.

    Video Transcript:
    Patients come to us with flu symptoms and most of them have a panic situation that they have acquired COVID-19 disease. See, COVID-19 generally has a high grade of fever, point number 1

    Point number 2, they have sore throat. One more thing is, they present with dry cough

    And patients start to have difficulty in breathing
    The fever is not subsiding even after three days
    And the patient continues to have breathing difficulties
    The definitely he has to consult a local physician

    In normal flu, fever is generally in milder form
    They have simple sore throat which subsides in three days on its own

    Fever is a very simple term, but it has so much in it
    There are fevers that do not have flu as well
    Like, an episode of three to four days of fever
    following which there is body pain, joints pain and all that

    So in that case it might be a dengue fever or malarial fever
    Malarial fevers generally present with fever with chills and all that
    which occurs every two days

    If a fever is not subsiding for three days then have to generally contact a physician

    Fever is generally due to an infectious cause and an non infectious cause
    The most common are infectious cause
    Infectious fevers again the causes are multiple
    Like bacterial infections are more common and viral fevers are more common
    There are fungal infections, there will be parasitic infections as well
    Like Malaria, Helmentia

    Non infectious causes of fever are also plenty
    All the cancers like Lymphoma, Leukemia, they present with persistent fevers running for long days
    Drugs like Atropine can cause fever
    In heat stroke too the patient might have a fever
    which is a non infectious cause

    So the reasons for fever are plenty
    So we have to find out what are the causes of fever
    for that you need to consult a physician

    You cannot prevent most of the fevers
    Few fevers like malaria and dengue, vector borne fevers can be controlled by effectively maintaining the hygiene around the environment

    Cover19 disease, in which individual hygiene matters a lot
    Maintaining hygiene of your hands, maintaining social distancing
    and using masks in crowded places.

    If the patient has fever with flu
    I request them to just isolate themselves to a single room
    And if the patient has any other symptoms aggravating like
    high grade of fever is still persistent
    or breathing difficulty or something like that is there
    for that you need to consult a physician

  • Covid-19 and Long-term Recovery


    Most of the world has been working on the assumption that when a person recovers from Covid-19, everything just goes back to normal. As the pandemic progresses though, we're learning about some patients who experience long-term complications from the disease.

  • COVID-19 and Post Viral Fatigue: Growing Recognition


    There is now growing media recognition that a significant proportion of people are experiencing protracted debilitating symptoms after an initial COVID-19 / coronavirus infection.

    The symptoms are not predictable, nor are they responsive to traditional forms of treatment. How many people are affected, and how should they be treating themselves to give the best chance of recovery?

  • Recovering from COVID-19 / Can Coronavirus cause Post Viral Fatigue?


    What happens once you recover from COVID-19? Are you better straight away? Maybe… but maybe not.

    Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS) can be a debilitating illness and there is a growing amount of evidence that this novel coronavirus may be responsible for it, even after only mild symptoms during the initial infection.

  • Battling COVID-19 fatigue


    If you've been feeling down about where we're headed with the pandemic, you're not alone. Many people right now are experiencing Covid fatigue.

  • COVID-19: Fatigue & Tiredness – Dr. Susan Wilcox, Harvard Medical School – Covid19@home / ACEP


    Go to to find out more crucial information, on how to take care of COVID-19 symptoms. | Fatigue and intense tiredness are key symptoms of COVID-19. Patients describe having no energy at all, to get up, move around, or do the normal things they would do. Even sitting up in bed can be difficult. This is different than feeling normally tired.

    Note: Center for Disease Control has created an easy online “Self Checker” tool that can help you assess the severity of your symptoms, whether they are linked to COVID-19, and when you should seek medical attention.

    It's important however to make sure you get up, and make sure you're staying hydrated. Kidney failure is common, because people become dehydrated while fatigued.

  • A new symptom and more argument


    Delirium, a new clinical feature (5th October)

    A key sign in frail, older people

    N = 322 patients admitted to hospital

    N = 535 users of the COVID Symptom Study app who tested positive

    A state of acute confusion

    Associated with a higher risk of serious illness and death

    Be aware of delirium as a possible early warning sign in the elderly

    Delirium, tiredness, breathlessness, more common in frailer people

    A third experiencing delirium lacked ‘classic’ COVID-19 symptoms of cough and fever

    For 18.9 % delirium was the only symptom

    Dr Rose Penfold

    Watch out for any changes in mental state in elderly people

    Confusion or strange behaviour

    Could be an early sign of coronavirus infection

    Put in place infection control measures such as isolation

    Increased hygiene and personal protective equipment

    Log health reports on behalf of friends and family who aren’t able to access the app

    Significantly increased the number of older people in the study
