According to doctors, the coronavirus from the new wave that "flooded" the world manifests itself a little differently than in the previous ones. This is probably due to his mutations
As doctors from St. Petersburg note, during this wave, gastrointestinal manifestations of the coronavirus began to appear more often, even such a term as "stomach covid" was introduced.
People often ignore gastrointestinal disorders, explaining them as a dietary disorder or general malaise. Also, many people now have chronic gastritis, so some symptoms are due to its exacerbation.
When such people take an antibody test, they are surprised by the results because they think they had no symptoms of the coronavirus, when in fact the stomach problems were just a manifestation of it.
"Stomach covid" is characterized by cramping pains above the navel at night, but they can occur at any time of the day. Stool abnormalities, heartburn, bloating and flatulence are possible.
The occurrence of "stomach covid" in a patient depends on the characteristics of his body - the coronavirus affects those organs with which he already has problems. Everything works according to the principle "where it is weak, there it breaks", the doctors emphasize.
