It might be covid, not anxiety

People often mistake COVID for anxiety. For 7-9 days, I thought my difficulty breathing was anxiety. It became worse after waking and at night, when I wa on my back.

Could be covid if:

-it’s easier to breathe on your belly, harder on your back

-harder to breathe after walking.

-anxiety medicine that usually works isn’t helping

Talk to your doctor. Often doctors will also claim it’s anxiety, especially if you are female or LGBTQIA+. Be adamant and ask for a chest X-ray and blood tests, if you are having difficult breathing. Also, trust hour gut. I wish I would have weeks ago.
