Sure Signs You Have the BA.5 Variant
If you’ve been feeling a bit off lately, it could be a sign that you have the BA.5 variant. This rare genetic mutation is linked to a variety of health issues, including fatigue, headaches, and digestive problems. Here are some sure signs that you may have the BA.5 variant.
1. You Experience Unexplained Fatigue
If you’re feeling tired all the time, even after getting plenty of rest, it could be a sign that you have the BA.5 variant. People with this mutation often experience unexplained fatigue, which can make it difficult to get through the day.
2. You Have Digestive Issues
Digestive issues are another common symptom of the BA.5 variant. People with this mutation often experience abdominal pain, bloating, and constipation. If you’ve been having digestive issues that don’t seem to have an obvious cause, it could be a sign that you have the BA.5 variant.
3. You Have Headaches
Headaches are another common symptom of the BA.5 variant. People with this mutation often experience frequent headaches, which can range from mild to severe. If you’ve been having headaches that don’t seem to have an obvious cause, it could be a sign that you have the BA.5 variant.
4. You Have Trouble Concentrating
People with the BA.5 variant often have trouble concentrating and focusing on tasks. If you’ve been having difficulty concentrating, even when you’re not feeling particularly tired, it could be a sign that you have the BA.5 variant.
5. You Have Unexplained Weight Loss
Unexplained weight loss is another common symptom of the BA.5 variant. People with this mutation often experience sudden and unexplained weight loss, which can be a sign that something is wrong. If you’ve been losing weight without making any changes to your diet or exercise routine, it could be a sign that you have the BA.5 variant.
What to Do If You Think You Have the BA.5 Variant
If you think you may have the BA.5 variant, it’s important to talk to your doctor. Your doctor can order tests to confirm the diagnosis and help you find the best treatment plan for your symptoms. Eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise can also help manage the symptoms of the BA.5 variant.
The one thing that stays constant about the COVID-19 pandemic is that it’s always changing. This week’s big news is the emergence of the BA.5 variant, which has become the dominant strain in the U.S. and is spreading rapidly. These are the signs you have the BA.5 variant of COVID. Read on to find out more—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don’t miss these Sure Signs You’ve Already Had COVID.
It’s well known that each successive COVID variant has been more contagious than the last. But BA.5 is exceptionally so, and it seems to be the most adept so far at eluding the protection of vaccines and previous infection. This week, NBC News reported that BA.4 and BA.5 are about three times less sensitive to antibodies from existing COVID vaccines than the original version of Omicron. So far, BA.5 accounts for about 54 percent of infections in the U.S.
BA.5’s ability to snake around prior immunity means we might be on the cusp of a “reinfection wave,” as The Atlantic put it this week. “Not only is it more infectious, but your prior immunity doesn’t count for as much as it used to,” Dr. Bob Wachter, the chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, told NPR on Monday. “And that means that the old saw that, ‘I just had COVID a month ago, and so I have COVID immunity superpowers, I’m not going to get it again’ — that no longer holds.”
NBC 5 Chicago reported that according to statistics in the UK—where BA.5 is already the dominant strain—the most common symptoms of BA.5 are runny nose, sore throat, headache, persistent cough, and fatigue. In the UK Independent this week, a doctor said that an unusual symptom that is common with BA.5 is night sweats.
The CDC hasn’t changed its list of the most common symptoms of COVID-19, which include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
Symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms, and even people with mild cases of COVID have gone on to develop “long COVID,” symptoms that linger for weeks or months after initial COVID infection.
