A woman has revealed the strange Covid side-effect that has stuck around three and a half weeks after she was infected. 

Former journalist Charlotte Mortlock tested positive earlier this month and has openly shared the effects the virus have had on her.

While she has mostly reported standard lingering symptoms – fatigue and anxiety – there was one starnge symtom that stood out.

On Thursday Ms Mortlock shared she had an unusually high heart rate that won’t drop even when she’s sleeping or resting.

‘Since covid 3.5 weeks ago, my heart rate is high all.the.time.,’ she wrote in a tweet.

‘My Garmin tells me every day that I’ve had ‘almost no restful moments’.’

‘I am reading. I am meditating. I am exercising. I am sleeping. I even made the ghastly choice to quit coffee! How long till this goes away?!’

However, Ms Mortlock wasn’t alone in her recovery as one person said he was experiencing the same thing.

Ms Mortlock wrote that her heart rate refuses to relax, even when she's resting and sleeping

‘I’ve had the same Charlotte. I also had covid about 4 weeks ago and have had a high heart rate and palpitations ever since,’ the person wrote.

‘Doc said it should go in time but running more tests to check and be safe.’

Several people wrote they had similar symptoms after receiving the Covid vaccine.

The British Heart Foundation said many Covid cases had reported a faster heart rate after recovery and suggested it could be related to how the immune system effected the nervous system during recovery

‘I had the same thing after my second vax. Didn’t sleep for 2 weeks,’ one person said.

‘Now having chest pains and shortness of breath most says. It’s safe and effective though.’

‘Mine looked like that directly following the 2nd jab and booster – when I was experiencing side effects,’ another wrote. 

‘Reading the Garmin manual, the stress monitor measures irregularities between heart beats.’

Although it isn't as widely discussed as fatigue and aches, increased heart rate has been recorded in several long Covid cases

Long Covid is essentially when symptoms of Covid stick around for a long time. 

The British Heart Foundation told news.com that many Covid cases had reported a faster heart rate after recovery and suggested it could be the immune response to the infection effected the autonomic nervous system, not the actual heart.  

Australian neuroscientist David Putrino has urged all Aussies who contract the virus as the severity of symptoms do not indicate whether a person will contract long Covid or not

Australian neuroscientist David Putrino leads several Covid rehabilitation clinics in New York and told the ABC that ‘pushing through’ Covid symptoms – however mild – cold put you at a higher risk of developing long Covid.

‘What we’ve seen over and over again is that the severity of the disease in the acute phase does not predict who’s going to go on to get quite severe long Covid,’ he said.
