Trying to get cleared to return to work after covid(been out since 12/4), it was discovered that my heart was "damaged) by the virus.
Pulse was nearly twice what it should be, BP very high also.
Dr thinks it is a by product of covid(she has 5 others with the same symptoms).
She did an EKG that she was not pleased with.
Tomorrow is an echocardiogram and a heart scan to see what damage there is.
My blood sugar was also very high and she thinks there might be a pancreas issue as well.
I had a physical a few months ago and non of this was present.
I`m a little nervous.
Not about the tests,
About
the results.

Sorry to hear this, but glad you're facing it and getting tested. Heart issues are no joke.

We’re you ever tested for Civid 19, or it’s antibodies? It is sad that all of the symptoms (short or long term) are not known. I wish you the best, in any event, for a recovery.

This is scary stuff. Surviving the virus might not be the end of things. It’s worrisome that there could be long-term effects that people will have for the rest of their lives.
