When Nina Dalsania Makadia felt the first symptoms of COVID-19 in March, she
braced herself for a couple of miserable weeks.
The Kennesaw mother of three young children expected the virus to be like a bad
cold or the flu. Her headache, chills and fever would require rest and recuperation in
bed, she thought. After that, she’d be better, and life would return to normal. But things haven’t returned to normal for the 38-year-old.
Three months since falling ill, Makadia still can’t shake extreme exhaustion. Even
going up and down the stairs in her home leaves her winded. Then there’s the leg
soreness, dizziness and gastrointestinal bleeding.
