Lesser-known mild Covid-19 symptoms that a number of those later diagnosed with corona virus have reported experiencing are stomach ache, eye infections, brain fog and fatigue. Check out more about Covid-19 symptoms which are less known here.
A study, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, suggests people might experience digestive issues, such as diarrhea, when they are infected with Covid-19.
The British Association of Otorhinolaryngology, which represents experts in ear, nose and throat medicine, also say that the eye infection conjunctivitis may be another sign. In a statement, the docs said: “Evidence from other countries that the entry point for the corona virus is often in the eyes, nose and throat areas.” It’s thought that losing the ability to smell or taste could be due to the virus destroying cells in the nose and throat.
Some people may experience brain fog, also known as mental fatigue, as another symptom of corona virus. It’s not been officially looked into as a symptom but it’s another indicator that those who have experienced the illness have reported experiencing.
Another symptom that corona virus patients have reported is feeling extremely fatigued before Covid-19 symptoms develop. According to a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association, up to 44 per cent of those hospitalized with Covid-19 reported exhaustion and fatigue.
