Post Covid tiredness.

    Had Covid about 3 weeks ago. Not too bad like a bad cold but fine but I'm exhausted all the time still. Can't walk more than 30 mins without needing a break (my walks are usually 2hrs+) I've heard this is common but just trying to gauge anyone else's experience with this.

    Yes, similar.I haven't tried walking yet but I would be on my feet all day usually.Only in the last 2 days have I managed my usual levels of activity but I am feeling it in my legs.

    I am not tired in the sense of needing sleep, but my body is not cooperating, tired achey legs a lot.A slightly winded chest also, although that seems to have eased today and yesterday.

    Friends and family who have had it in the last 3 months have said the same.I tested positive just over 3 weeks ago.

    tis common alright unfortunately, fatigue is an awful thing, i suffer from mild fatigue myself, the psychological affects are the worst

    It's just getting annoying now. A friend who works in health shops picked me up these vitamin capsules and they actually work but they wear off and back to square one. Can't meet friends as I wouldn't be very good for a chat and a laugh.

    I got COVID 2 weeks ago and also experience this fatigue issue.

    It's post viral fatigue, you'd get that COVID or non COVID. 2 to 3 weeks would not be a major concern yet.
