Symptoms to pay attention:
The official symptoms of coronavirus are fever, cough and shortness of breath, and recently the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requested that several more symptoms be added to the official list – tremors, muscle aches, headaches, sore throats and loss of smell and taste. .
The first symptoms usually appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus, and those that require immediate medical attention are definitely shortness of breath, shortness of breath, confusion, chest pain, bluish lips or face.
However, there are a few other symptoms that some patients have developed that are not so common as to be on the official list, although they may be a good indicator of coronavirus infection.
One of the most common recurrent symptoms in people with severe respiratory illness is muscle pain (myalgia).
Myalgia was previously a sign that more inflammation had developed in the body.
According to the World Health Organization, about 15 percent of all coronavirus patients have pain in the body or joints.
Pain is caused by chemicals called cytokines, a chemical that the body releases when it responds to an infection.
Lesions of the tongue
Lesions and spots that appear in the mouth or throat may be new symptoms of the coronavirus, according to a new study.
The researchers found that one-third of patients with Covid-19 who have a skin rash, ie. on the arms and legs also have changes in the oral cavity.
Spots and lesions on the gums usually appear two weeks after patients first had symptoms of the coronavirus, such as fever or shortness of breath.
A team from Ramon and Kayal Health Center in Madrid said doctors and nurses should examine the oral cavities of patients who are positive for the coronavirus or suspected patients to determine if they are also showing these signs.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati examined the symptoms of 114 patients diagnosed with Covid-19 and came up with surprising data based on the data collected.
As many as 47.7 percent of participants reported a depressed mood at least a few days before the onset of the first symptoms.
They said they suffered from mild anxiety, and 10.5 percent said they were severely anxious.
The study’s co-author, Dr. Ahmad Sedacht, noted that the signs of anxiety and depression are understandably related to the symptoms of Covid-19, as the disease attacks the central nervous system.
The smell of urine
Doctors now say that the strong smell of urine can be an alarm that you have a coronavirus.
Urine with an intense odor and an unusual yellow color is a sign of dehydration, which often occurs due to infection with Covid-19. The urine then gets a particularly unpleasant odor because it becomes more concentrated, precisely because of the lower level of fluid in the blood.
Therefore, anyone who notices that they are dehydrated along with shortness of breath should contact a doctor immediately.
Inflammation of the ear
Scientists have discovered the corona virus in the ears of two dead patients who tested positive for Covid-19, so studies indicate that hearing loss may be a rare symptom of infection.
Studies have shown that the virus can also infect the ear and mastoid bone just behind the ear.
This is not the first time the coronavirus has been linked to ear infections or ear problems. A study published in April found that Covid-19 causes otitis media in adult patients, an inflammatory process in which the eardrum becomes inflamed.
Although the side effects of coronavirus or Covid-19 disease vary from person to person, Spanish experts are now examining leg lesions that have occurred in some patients in the early stages of the disease.
Namely, these are lesions that look like measles, it is stated in the report of the Council of the University of Poddirija (experts on foot diseases).
According to them, in Italy, France and Spain, numerous cases of patients with the coronavirus had lesions on the legs, as evidenced by dermatologists.
This symptom was particularly pronounced in adolescents and children, but some adults also had similar foot symptoms.
