Since the covid took over our day to day life, this one was followed by the sequels that could stay with us when the disease passed. The consequences that this disease can cause were more widespread during the first wave and since vaccines and treatments were not so advanced, these were aggravated to a greater extent by ignorance.
Today, after so much change we have been adapting and updating the Covid-19. Moreover, on 20 April the Government of Spain has approved the end of the obligatory masks indoors. A news received between fear and desire, depending on the person.
Now to this is added a last Swedish study that details that those people who have passed the covid in the last 6 months if they suffer blood clots, venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism is not surprising, since they are prone to bleeding episodes. Researchers at the University of Glasgow have discovered and observed these sequelae in the first three months after infection.
The reason lies in the inflammatory response generated in some patients during Covid-19 infection being more likely to produce an increased risk of blood clots after this. But how do we know we’re having a thrombosis or pulmonary embolism?
Venous thrombosis causes:
- Swelling usually in legs and arms.
- Pain or tenderness in the leg.
- Reddish and bluish tones on the skin.
- Leg or arm warm to touch
If we focus on the pulmonary embolism, some of its symptoms are:
- Shortness of breath.
- Chest pain that is magnified by breathing.
- Heart rate is up.
- Unexplained cough, sometimes accompanied by blood.
