Eat This, Not That!
When you first heard about the coronavirus, chances are you were told the symptoms would last 2 to 14 days, if you felt them at all. But now that the COVID-19 has been on these shores for a while, doctors are finding that certain symptoms can last for weeks and sometimes months—even after the patient tests negative for COVID-19. Here’s a list of those problems that are currently being reported. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these 35 Places You’re Most Likely to Catch COVID. 1 Chest Pain and Discomfort I feel “a burning and tingling across my chest and my neck that came with a hot flash,” Kerri Noeth, who was on day 36, told WABC News. “It’s just been a wide range of lingering symptoms, particularly heart palpitations, and extreme discomfort in my chest and in my ribs.” 2 Lack of Smell and Taste One symptom that has come up for a lot of people is losing the ability to taste and smell—normally at the beginning, but for some, it hasn’t returned. “I would love to get my sense of taste and smell back,” Susan Silverman, who was on day 38, told WABC News. 3 Vertigo Silverman also had vertigo. “Vertigo is a sensation of feeling off balance,” reports WebMD. “If you have these dizzy spells, you might feel like you are spinning or that the world around you is spinning.”RELATED: This is the #1 Way You’ll Get COVID, According to Doctors 4 Lung Tissue Damage “Chronic fatigue after recovery from a COVID-19 infection is possible and some people who recover continue to feel respiratory symptoms as a result of damage to lung tissue,” says Dr. Ari Bernstein, MD, advisor for Fruit Street Health and CovidMD. “Researchers have also found that long term scarring of the lungs, known as fibrosis, can be a problem, which could cause varying levels of long term breathing impairments.” 5 Heart Issues One could experience heart palpitations and mild heart dysfunction. According to WebMD, “palpitations make you feel like your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering.” 6 You Have a Persistent Dry Cough “The hacking dry cough that is present in COVID is due to irritation of the lung tissue. As air enters the lungs and goes past the irritated tissue, it triggers the cough,” says Dr. Leann Poston. “It’s likely that your cough will still linger until your body completely heals any damaged tissue,” says Dr. Seema Sarin, Director of Lifestyle Medicine, EHE Health.RELATED: Dr. Fauci Says Most People Did This Before Catching COVID 7 Post-ICU Syndrome “This is a common outcome of having to be intubated and housed in an intensive care unit for a long period of time, which isn’t uncommon in COVID-19 patients who need hospitalization,” says Dr. Christine Traxler. “The main symptoms seen are similar to PTSD, with anxiety, depression, nightmares, flashbacks, and a higher risk for suicide and long-term mental and physical health complications coming out of the stress of this type of medical experience.” 8 Shortness of Breath “As you recover, you may notice that at rest, you can breathe fine,” says Dr. Poston. “But as the demand for oxygen increases (i.e., increased activity), you are short of breath.” “I’ve been short of breath for two months, with a firey feeling in my lungs,” one patient tells Eat This, Not That! Health. “Even after testing negative for the virus, with my oxygen levels looking OK, the constricting feeling remains.” RELATED: The Unhealthiest Supplements You Shouldn’t Take 9 Brain Damage “For those patients who were more seriously ill with COVID-19, the changes in lung and kidney function could lead to the presence of chemicals in the blood that are toxic to the brain,” says Dr. James Giordano, Professor of Neurology and Biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC. “The effects of these chemicals can cause changes in brain function, some of which may last for several weeks to months (if not longer in some cases).” 10 Stroke-Like Symptoms “There is evidence that, for young people in particular, the first evidence of a COVID-19 infection could be a stroke due to a blockage of a major artery supplying the brain,” Dr. Traxler. “If not treated within a few hours after onset, the stroke symptoms are likely to persist and might include arm and leg weakness, facial droop, swallowing problems, balance issues, and speech deficits.” 11 Symptoms like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome a.k.a. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, warned many patients develop post-viral syndrome with symptoms resembling chronic fatigue syndrome a.k.a. myalgic encephalomyelitis. “Brain fog, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating,” Dr. Fauci said at the International AIDS Conference. “So this is something we really need to seriously look at because it very well might be a post-viral syndrome associated with COVID-19.” Traditional ME can last a lifetime. 12 Make a Plan for Your Recovery Work with your medical care team to determine the best course of action for you. Ask for second opinions if you aren’t satisfied. Keep a diary, so they can understand what you’re feeling and when. And remember this inconvenient truth: Doctors are still learning about the virus. So although they may not be able to help you, informing them about any long-lasting symptoms will eventually help the experts better understand COVID-19. As for yourself: To get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don’t miss these 4 Things You Should Never Do Now, Warns Dr. Fauci.
Sticking with the Galaxy S20? Pick up the S-View Flip Cover for just $20 – XDA Developers
Not picking up the Samsung Galaxy S21? Completely happy with your Galaxy S20 Plus or Galaxy S21 Ultra? Good on you for being frugal. Since it’s coming up on the launch of the Galaxy S21, you know you can save big on S20 accessories. Take the really neat Galaxy S20 S-View Flip Cover, for example. You can now pick one up for just $20!
Seriously, the S-View Flip Cover is really cool. The biggest downside of a flip case is that you can’t exactly see the screen when it’s closed–which makes sense, as a lot of the point is to protect your screen from scratches and imperfections. Samsung’s flip case, however, allows you to see the most important information without removing the cover. You’ll see the time, battery life, and notifications–so basically, everything on your lock screen, right on the outside of the Flip Cover!
Samsung is, of course, looking to clear out Galaxy S20 inventory as they turn their attention to the S21 line, but that means it’s your chance to save on the S-View Flip Cover! Available for the Galaxy S21 Plus and S21 Ultra, these cases usually retail at $50. But, you can now pick it up for just $20! That’s an incredibly good price on one of the most useful cases I’ve ever seen.
Unfortunately, if you have the standard Galaxy S20 or the S20 FE, you can’t take advantage of this particular deal. What you can go for instead is this wallet cover, which gives you the time without flipping it open! Not exactly the same functionality but it works!
For those that aren’t impressed by this neat case, don’t worry! Samsung has discounted a variety of Galaxy S20 products. Take a look through the Samsung Store’s selection and find the perfect accessory for your phone.
Apple Faces Lawsuit in Italy Over iPhone Battery Life – The Deep Dive
It appears that Apple is in hot water once again, this time about making misleading claims regarding the battery life of older iPhones.
Altroconsumo, an Italian consumer organization, on Monday announced it has filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple, alleging the iPhone manufacturer of planned obsolescence. The association is seeking $73 million in damages, after Italian consumers were allegedly mislead regarding the battery life of older iPhone models, specifically the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, 6S, and 6S Plus. Sales of the iPhone models in Italy totalled over 1 million between 2014 and 2020.
In an emailed response to the lawsuit, Apple maintains that it has not done anything intentional to reduce the lifespan of its products, or diminish the user experience in order to increase consumer upgrades. However, this is not the first class-action suit of its kind: similar lawsuits were previously filed in the US, claiming that the iPhone manufacturer purposefully created software updates that reduced the performance of older devices.
In November 2020, Apple agreed to pay US$113 million to settle the case with several US regulators. In the meantime, US consumers are still awaiting the results from a US court regarding a class-action settlement worth up to US$500 million.

“I’ve loved walking ever since I was a little girl in the Smoky Mountains,” Parton said in the official Apple press release. “I think it’s so important to be able to get out and walk if we can during this time. I do my best thinking when I walk. And while many of us feel confined during this time, I’m hopeful that people will take a walk down memory lane with me and we can all feel a little more freedom taking the time to walk together.”
“Taking a walk is a great way to clear your mind,” Mendes said in the release. “It’s the most simple thing you can do to calm the body and soul, reflect, and slow down. I hope people get to feel the same sense of calm I do while walking and can bring that to their own experiences.”

New episodes will automatically appear on the Workout app on Apple Watch and on the Fitness+ tab in the Fitness app on the iPhone.
