Default Alyssa Milano reveals she's still suffering the lingering effects of COVID-19

'This is a really rough illness': Alyssa Milano reveals she's still suffering the lingering effects of COVID-19... SIX months after first feeling symptoms

Alyssa Milano has revealed that she's still suffering the lingering effects of COVID-19, six months after she first experienced symptoms.

The Hollywood actress, 47, continues to experience shortness of breath and even fever-induced hallucinations, putting her in the category of long COVID sufferers.

'There are still lingering effects, like I still have shortness of breath,' she said in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment. 'I still have heart palpitations.'

Continuing to list her ongoing symptoms, she continued: 'I have, like, a high-pitched noise in my ear. My hair is falling out.

'It doesn't feel like you're only physically sick. It feels like there's hallucinations because of fevers, there's weird dreams. I think it's because the brain is affected. That's why people lose their sense of smell.'

The star also revealed her hopes for how preparations for the illness should be made in the future: 'We should definitely begin to shift the focus on post-COVID syndrome and, you know, try to figure out what the lasting repercussions are,' she said.

'This is a really rough, rough illness,' insisted the former Who's The Boss? star. 'We can’t think that this is over and done with, because it surely is not.'

Earlier this month, Alyssa said on Instagram that in her wellness check that she is 'starting to physically feel better' as she continues her vitamin and aspirin regimen.

The Charmed star said: 'Soooooo... how are you? This is a wellness check and a health update. I'm ok. I'm starting to physically feel better.'

She continued: I'm still taking an aspirin ever 3 days to thin my blood, fish oil, vitamin D, C, zinc and a B complex. I still have occasional heart palpitations. I still forget my words (absolute worst part).'

'But it's not nearly as bad as it was a few weeks ago. I feel better. I had a ct scan of my lungs and a cardiac MRI and both were normal,' she said.

Alyssa added: 'I get super scared sometimes, though. Not of getting sick again but of my loved ones getting sick. I don't ever want them to have this thing. It's a beast. So I vacillate between being so grateful and so terrified.'

Alyssa noted that she is 'grateful that it was me who got sick and terrified that friends or family will be sick. And I can't help but wonder - how are you? Please be safe. Please let me know you're ok.'

Alyssa shared two selfies while rocking a patterned top with her tresses loose around her.

Last month, the actress took to Twitter to share a video of herself brushing her locks after a shower which resulted in her pulling out several strands.

She began the video by saying: 'Hey everybody, I just wanted to show you the amount of hair that is coming out of my head as a result of COVID.

People who experienced long-term symptoms of COVID-19 say hair loss is a side effect of the virus, according to recent studies.

'This is a detangler brush, my favorite detangler brush. As you can see in there is no hair in there right now.'

Milano began brushing through her brunette tresses while wearing a New York Giants robe as she kept pulling bunches of locks from her brush.

She concluded the video by lifting the entire bunch of long hairs and saying: 'One brushing, this is my hair loss from COVID-19. Wear a damn mask!'

The actress captioned the shocking video to her followers writing: 'Thought I’d show you what #Covid19 does to your hair. Please take this seriously. #WearADamnMask #LongHauler.'

Multiple clinics and studies have reported a link between COVID-19 and hair loss with survivors of the disease reporting their hair falling out in clumps.

Experts say most COVID-19 patients are suffering telogen effluvium (TE), a temporary condition that involves hair shedding, caused by physical or emotional stress, high fever, illness or weight loss of over 20 pounds, according to WebMD.

Alyssa recently revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies after testing negative three times after experiencing symptoms in April and said she is considered a 'long hauler' by physicians.

Last month, she shared a selfie wearing a rainbow while sitting in a hospital bed.

She captioned the image: 'I was acutely sick w/ Covid19 in April. I still have many symptoms. I am what they call a “long hauler”. Last night, I had real heaviness in my chest.

'I went to the ER just to make sure it wasn’t a blood clot. Thankfully, it wasn’t. This virus sucks. Please take it seriously.'
