SpainHeadache is one of the five most commonly reported symptoms of the Omicron variant.
Headache and fever are the two most common symptoms of Covid-19. Researchers at the Universitario de La Princes Hospital in Madrid, Spain, found that if the F0s present as the first symptom of a headache, they are usually mild and have a low risk of death.
Headache is also one of the most commonly reported persistent Covid-19 symptoms. Although less common, some people also experience persistent fevers, which may or may not be accompanied by a headache. Researchers have shown that 10%-70% of people with Covid-19 suffer from headaches. About 25% of people experience migraine attacks, while 75% experience tension headaches. Headache is one of the five most commonly reported symptoms of the Omicron variant.
In addition, experts say headaches in the case of infection with the Omicron variant are an inflammatory response of the body when fighting the virus and can last for three days, even if the patient takes regular painkillers.
Researchers identified 55 long-term symptoms of Covid-19. They define a persistent symptom that will persist for 14 to 110 days after infection. More than 80% of F0 develop at least one long-term symptom, the most common being: fatigue (58%); headache (44%); poor concentration (27%); hair loss (25%). and shortness of breath (24%). 11% of people have intermittent fever.
If you suspect you have Covid-19, it’s important to isolate yourself from others. Most cases of F0 can be treated at home with plenty of rest. However, the patient should seek immediate medical attention if the body develops symptoms such as shortness of breath or chest pain. Doctors recommend that people seek care if their headaches are associated with slurred speech or blurred vision.
