Unusual Covid Symptoms

According to the health body, a few unusual signs and symptoms associated with the new COVID variant include:

Anxiety and stess

COVID-19 is associated with increased levels of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty. It also leads to difficulty in concentrating and remembering things, mood swings, and more breathlessness.

Insomnia or sleeplessness

According to doctors, heightened stress and anxiety trigger insomnia or sleeplessness, making it challenging for individuals to fall or stay asleep. Also, the virus itself causes respiratory issues, discomfort, or fever, further impacting sleep quality.

Runny nose

According to studies, more than 31 per cent of those suffering from the JN.1 variant have reported runny nose as a symptom.

Severe or dull headache

A dull or throbbing headache can be a symptom, especially in the early stages of infection.

Fatigue and constant tiredness

Feeling drained and lacking energy without any physical exhaustion can last you up to a month, despite recovering from COVID.

Muscle aches

Generalized muscle soreness or pain in specific areas like the back or legs can occur.
