(WXYZ) – The list of symptoms of COVID-19 is increasing. The CDC has added several new indications that it may indicate that you may have coronavirus.
The CDC website now lists at least 11 symptoms. And the most recent additions include:
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting and
And just to refresh everyone’s memory, other features on the list include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing
- Muscle or body ache
- head ache
- New loss of taste or smell and
- Sore throat
So this is a fairly long list but unfortunately, it can grow even further as we learn more about the novel coronavirus.
It was very interesting. 164 people were surveyed and asked what their symptoms were when they had COVID-19. And get this, 96% of them said that they have one of the following: fever, cough or shortness of breath. And, 45% of them said that all three of those symptoms were.
Now, break it even farther – which of those three symptoms was the most common? Well, 84% said they have cough and 80% had fever. For shortness of breath, 82% of those who were hospitalized said that they did not have to be hospitalized, compared to only 38% of those surveyed.
It is very important to know when to seek emergency medical care, so here are these signs:
- Difficulty breathing
- Continuous chest pain or pressure
- New complication
- Inability to wake up or stay and
- Blue lips or face
Now this list does not cover every possible warning sign. We know that some people may have problems speaking or may have problems with their vision. Or maybe you feel really clouded or you are not thinking as fast as you normally would. The main point here is that you seek medical help for any symptoms that are severe or worrisome for you.
Complications can develop and, sadly for some people, it can literally cost them an arm and a leg. Amputation can occur due to oxygen deficiency, blood flow and blood pressure problems. Some people are having a stroke or problem with blood clots. It is also happening for young people. But thankfully, serious complications of this type are not very common.
