Covid parasthesia (numbness, tingling) 2 weeks after recovery?

So, I contracted Covid around Jan-10. I recovered around the end of January.

Starting yesterday, though, I’ve had a weird tingling and numbness in my left arm and hand. The fingers, especially, get tingly, if I rinse them with cold water. My chest (heart region) also gets this weird twingy sensation every now and then. None of this is severe, it’s more of an annoyance than anything. Nor does it hinder my movement or use of those body parts.

I had read that about 30% of Covid patients experience this sort of parasthesia. But two weeks after I recovered? Is this normal, and have any other Dopers had this?

I personally did not experience paresthesia, but poking around on google it looks like some people experience it for as long as 3 months.

FWIW, I’m same as @engineer_comp_geek. Have had no issues like that. But evidence is some people do.

I hope you’re planning to mention pain in the heart region to your doctor.

I’d call the doctor right away, and discuss. Left arm and chest? Maybe it’s not parasthesia.

While I agree, I wouldn’t be too worried about it either. It’s more of a just in case thing.

But do get it checked out. It could be blood flow problems.

Definitely rule out heart issues. The odds of cardiac events (really all the medical events) increase significantly after having COVID.

I would see my doctor with those symptoms.

I’ve had tinnitus since I had Covid in July :frowning:

Bumping to inquire about updates. Hope you’re OK, @Velocity.

Hi, sorry, my absentedness. I saw a cardiologist, he did an EKG and said there was nothing wrong with my heart, my blood pressure was fine too. The tingling has diminished down to almost zero. He said it was probably more of a nerve thing than anything blood/heart related. Another doctor said it’s fairly common for some viruses to cause weird nerve tingling of this sort. I am guessing it should be all gone this week.

That’s a relief. Glad to hear you’re doing better, and that your heart is in good shape.

Oh, good. Glad you did see the cardiologist, though.

Glad to hear it’s nothing serious. And good for you, getting it checked out!
