Alyssa Milano Says Her Lingering COVID Symptoms Include 'Occasional Heart Palpitations'


Alyssa Milano continues to experience lingering symptoms after testing positive for COVID-19 antibodies.

The “Charmed” alum gave fans an update about her health on Instagram on Tuesday night.

"I’m starting to physically feel better. I’m still taking an aspirin every 3 days to thin my blood, fish oil, vitamin D, C, zinc and a B complex. I still have occasional heart palpitations. I still forget my words (absolute worst part)," she explained in the caption.

She assured fans she’s doing “ok” and that the symptoms are “not nearly as bad" as they were "a few weeks ago."

She also revealed that a recent CT scan of her lungs and a cardiac MRI of her heart yielded “normal” results.

The actress said the whole experience has been terrifying and she’s scared of getting her loved ones sick.

"I don’t ever want them to have this thing. It’s a beast. So I vacillate between being so grateful and so terrified. Grateful that it was me who got sick and terrified that friends or family will be sick,” she noted.

She then turned the mic over to fans to ensure that they’re coping well amid the pandemic. "And I can’t help but wonder—how are you?. Please be safe. Please let me know you're ok,” she wrote.

Last month, the actress revealed she tested positive for antibodies. Despite having “basically every COVID symptom,” she tested negative for the virus itself.

"Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible," she said at the time on Instagram.

Even four months after recovery, she said she experienced several lingering symptoms including “vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise.”

She shared her story to urge her fans and followers to take the virus seriously, adding that it’s not a “hoax.”
