Omicron Symptoms Usually Appear Like This

Omicron is a rare medical condition that can cause a variety of symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and can vary from person to person. Common symptoms of Omicron include fatigue, joint pain, muscle weakness, and difficulty breathing. Other symptoms may include fever, chills, and a rash.

Eat This, Not That

When it comes to managing Omicron symptoms, it’s important to make sure you’re eating the right foods. Eating a balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins can help to reduce inflammation and improve overall health. Avoiding processed foods, sugary snacks, and fried foods can also help to reduce symptoms. Additionally, drinking plenty of water and getting regular exercise can help to reduce symptoms and improve overall health.

The rise of the worldwide BA.2 subvariant of Omicron has health experts on high alert. As of now, they’re not sure if the new iteration of COVID-19 will cause a new surge in the U.S. Some reports indicate that BA.2 is causing some slightly different symptoms. They’re important to be aware of so you can get tested, isolate, and call your doctor ASAP for advice if you develop them.

Some different early symptoms have been reported with the BA.2 subvariant, said Washington State health official Francisco Velazquez recently. Namely: Dizziness and fatigue. Unfortunately, previous Omicron infection doesn’t seem to be protective against contracting BA.2, he said. But the COVID vaccines are still highly protective against severe illness or death.

Last month, scientists with the ZOE COVID Symptom Study said there had been a “sharp increase” in reports of stomach pain. “Gastrointestinal (GI) problems — such as diarrhea, stomach pains, feeling sick and losing your appetite or skipping meals — can all be symptoms of COVID-19,” they said, while noting those symptoms might also be attributable to seasonal stomach flu.

BA.2 seems to present differently depending on whether you’ve been vaccinated or not. “If you’re vaccinated, it seems to be more milder symptoms, and I’m very hopeful that we’re not going to have an additional strain on the healthcare system,” medical researcher Dr. Jasmine Plummer told ABC 7 Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Otherwise, Omicron and BA.2 symptoms don’t markedly differ from the Delta variant, the COVID Symptom Study indicates. The five most common symptoms are the same: Runny nose, headache, fatigue, sneezing and sore throat. People have also frequently reported loss of appetite and brain fog, but those were also common with previous variants.

On PBS NewsHour last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert, said that BA.2 has one “very important difference” from Omicron and several similarities.”It is more transmissible,” he said. However, “it doesn’t appear to be any more severe, and it doesn’t seem to evade immune responses either induced by the vaccine or by prior infection.”
