Diarrhea and Vomiting

Research from Wuhan, China, found that 50% of COVID-19 patients reported gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, or stomachache.

Testicular Swelling
A new study in The American Journal of Emergency Medicine reported that “several genitourinary complications have been reported” with COVID-19, including blood clotting issues that can cause a prolonged, painful erection.

Ringing in the Ears
The coronavirus can cause dizziness, vertigo, and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, which can linger. “Often these issues — which include tinnitus, or ringing in the ears — persist even after other symptoms of the illness subside.”

Eye and Vision Problems
“COVID-19 might cause eye problems such as enlarged, red blood vessels, swollen eyelids, excessive watering and increased discharge,” the Mayo Clinic notes. Light sensitivity and irritation are also possible; these symptoms tend to show up in people with severe COVID-19 infections.

Skin Changes
People of all ages have reported that their coronavirus infection came with skin changes, such as a red, bumpy rash; hives; or breakouts resembling chickenpox. According to the COVID Symptom Study, these happen in up to 20% of cases.

Neurological Symptoms
“Brain fog,” confusion or the inability to concentrate or focus, has been commonly reported by people with COVID. In August, a study published in The Lancet found that 55% of people diagnosed with coronavirus have neurological symptoms three months after their diagnosis.

Ongoing chest pain, which can scarily resemble a heart attack, has been reported by people with “long-haul” coronavirus symptoms. It’s caused by costochondritis, an inflammation of the cartilage that connects ribs to the breastbone.

Thrush occurs when a yeast-like organism called Candida albicans grows in thick white patches over the mouth, tongue, and throat. In a recent study of 1,567 COVID patients, 42 reported having long-term issues with thrush.
