Almost exactly a month ago, I contracted COVID (most likely from school where I am an educator) and it hit me pretty hard. I had no underlying health issues but I was pretty much confined to bed/couch for 3 full weeks. Lots of symptoms came and went...full body ache, feeling cold and shivering, lack of appetite, always tired, headache non-stop. Toward the end of week two, I started coughing and my chest felt tight.
Glad to say I am almost back to normal, still have a hard time catching my breath, especially after climbing a flight of stairs etc. That is totally not like me and I am wondering if anyone has recovered from COVID and can let me know if they went through something similar. Is this something that is gonna drag on for months/years? I really want to start exercising again but I just can't do it yet.
