My name is Missi, I'm 57 and had Covid at the end of 2020. I have many issues since having it. Brain fog, no taste or smell, fatigue and a few other things. one thing that I wasn't to ask is does anyone have problems with balance? I don't get dizzy, just off balanced.

      My lack of balance is as a result of what is currently being labeled "deconditioning". After a little research, I would call that fair. I spent nearly 6 weeks in bed in the spring of 2020 with COVID. I've never fully recovered. Lots of balance is definitely part of deconditioning.

      I was diagnosed with BPPV in April and I also have a cyst on my pineal gland in my brain. I was perfectly healthy, got covid in August 2021 and health went downhill in April 2022. Not sure if this is long covid or not? But I have chronic fatigue, dizziness, off balance, numb fingers, brain fog and ear ringing

      I thought it was just me! Ive noticed the past year (got covid christmas 2021) ive been falling over while standing or walking more often. Even when im laying down, i feel unbalanced. All of a sudden one of my legs will feel like it's been swept out from under me and im falling, yes, while laying down.

        @audRei Oof, that sounds awful! Don’t worry, it’s not just you. I hope you’re able to get some testing done to figure out what’s going on!

      Yes, and I was diagnosed with a central balance system disorder called PPPD, or persistent perceptual postural dizziness (but even though it has the word “dizziness” in it, like you, that’s not something I experience). They diagnosed it with a test that is called an ENG (Electronystagmography) or VNG (Videonystagmography). I went to an ENT first who referred me to a neurologist for the test.

      I had issues myself pre- covid but extremely worse now. Hell, I can't even walk a staight line anymore. People probably think I'm drunk! Lol!

      I had the lack of balance problems prior to having Covid (Dec 2021) but it does seem to be more of a challenge since having Covid
