If you have had Covid-19, you may be experiencing some changes in your body and your system. Although not everybody will experience changes and difficulties, it is clear that a proportion of people do. Even if you do not notice physical changes, you may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had on you. These changes should get better over time, some may take longer than others, but there are things you can do to help.
The NHS website, Your COVID Recovery, helps you to understand what has happened and what you might expect as part of your recovery. It also has information for family, friends and carers to help support you following COVID illness as they may find providing support difficult during this very stressful time.
There is also information on donating plasma if you have recovered from coronavirus, how to get tests to check if you have coronavirus, how to get antibody tests to tell how likely it is you’ve had coronavirus before, as well as really helpful advice if you were on an ICU.
Have a look at the site today for information on managing the effects of Covid, how to help with your wellbeing, and also how to help your road to recovery. There is a helpful symtom advice tool that helps you with some of the symptoms you might still be feeling.
