I'm just catching up with this thread. I am curious why you are definitively linking your previous case of covid to the current inflammation issues? I'm not a medical professional, but I've got to think there are a number of reasons why one might experience inflammation that are not related to covid?



I was told by both my doctors, primary and cardiologist that my covid virus was the likely cause. Nobody said "definitive".

Untreated strep throat infections can damage your heart. So can the flu.

If you think your heart isn't working correctly, then there are some other signs that you might look for other than just the fatigue. For example holding your arms above your head, while trying to change a light bulb. When your arms are over your head they feel very weak, but when they're below your shoulders they still feel strong. When riding in a car and someone accelerates, you grey out a bit and feel dizzy. Gravity feels stronger in the mornings or like someone is riding on your back. If you wake during the night, you find it difficult to stand right away or like you can't immediately move your body. You feel like you've been at the amusement park after riding in a car, or in the late evening. You have more falling dreams than usual.

So can too much cardio and exercise.



My initial heart valve destruction (endocarditis) was caused by an infection that spread through the blood to heart and valve lining. I haven't heard about too much cardio and exercise. That is a new one to me.

Endocarditis can come on and progress pretty quickly and a lot of times there are no real symptoms, other than fatigue and feeling run down and tired. This is a hindrance because people tend to not seek treatment right away and a couple days can be the difference between and antibiotic treatment and needing emergency surgery.

This has probably made me oversensitive to the symptom of fatigue. But I will say the fatigue I have experienced from covid for 4+ months is different than the fatigue I experienced with endocarditis. Kind of hard to explain the difference, but with this covid fatigue I just fall a sleep easily (especially when watching TV) and am sort of in a fog. I can hear things going on around me, but just can't seem to wake up. And it is always accompanied by a headache. Not a severe headache, just kind of a foggish headache is the best way I can explain it. Compatible to a minor hangover back when I used to drink.

For the most part, forums are a garden of misinformation.

Just ask a casino employee how their comp system works and you will get a mountain of misinformation
