I hope you recover quickly. I didn't realise how bad the rashes can be. Lots of pictures here:

I was admitted to A and E with really bad hives last December 2020. I couldn't breathe properly, and thinking perhaps I actually had covid then. I was treated for anaphylactic shock via drip with cortisol and something else I can't recall.
Those hives are dangerous, and I had them in my mouth and throat, in my ears, just everywhere. I would get that rash checked out, if you still have it.
After three hours on the drip, the rash disappeared, never had it again. Take good care of yourself, hope you get better soon.

Not really a sleeping disorder, but when I had just recovered from the coronavirus (end of April 2020), I started having nightmares (absolutely scaring nightmares!) every single night, for at least 4 months, maybe longer.
Lately I am feeling sleepy all the time, I would sleep just everywhere, the floor would do too. And it's nearly a year now.

Along with a weakness and lack of motivation in everything I (should) do.

It’s much more like a that she caught Covid than the flu, no? I thought the flu was more or less eliminated in Ireland this year but Covid still widespread.

Tested positive on Wednesday and have been relatively ok. Just no energy and just don't feel right. But today my sense of smell has changed. It's not gone but its like stuff now almost stings my nose. If I had vinegar on my dinner or salt and vinegar crisps. The vinegar smell would be its like x10 and almost catch the back of my throat. Made a sandwich today and put a tiny bit of mustard on the bread and it was like I snorted it up my nose it felt so strong. Weird, unpleasant feeling.

She complained that in March 2020 nobody had told her about the long covid and how to deal with it, and she had to find that out on her own.

She said she suffers from a few issues, but the most annoying is the lack of motivation in everything she does. She's an artist in the metal handcrafts, and she said this is affecting a lot on her job.

So, this is another case of lack or loss of motivation and interest.

What is really disturbing, in my point of view, is that a year later doctors still know very little about this. I wonder when they have the answers.

This is a bit bizarre but wondering has anyone a similar experience.

Tested positive in early Jan, smell and taste completely went and then came back fully in mid February.

It had been fine till recently but had a bottle of Coke last week and it tasted very off and strange(horrible taste, I usually am a big fan). Tasted it again today and it was the same. Anyone notice a difference in taste in coke or any other Fizzy drinks?

I've heard of people having this problem with skin during and after infection.

They got creams etc but you can't put it everywhere. Eventually got prescribed a steroid tablet and it went.

Sounds awful and hope you are all feeling better now.

Can happen. I was randomly getting burning smells for a while after or Sulphur. Thought my house was on fire one night.
