It has been two months since Alyssa Milano tested positive for COVID-19 and she’s opening up about the symptoms she’s still experiencing.
The 47-year-old actress is making an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, which airs on Friday (October 9).
“My first symptoms were stomach issues and a headache like I’ve never felt before in my life, and just overwhelming fatigue. That lasted for about three days. So I thought to myself, I should probably just go get tested. First test came back negative. I would say, two days after that first test, it settled in my lungs and that’s when it got really scary. I said, ‘This is the moment. Do I go to the hospital, do I go to the emergency room or do I stay home?’” she shared.
Dr. Oz replied, “Let me let me focus on one symptom that I know it’s lingered for months. It’s the extreme hair loss that we looked at early on. What’s it like seeing a part of your body fall out?”
Alyssa said, “It’s hard, especially when you’re an actor and so much of your identity is wrapped up in those things, like having long silky hair and clean skin. Along with that also, I have the brain fog. Which, again, as an actress, as someone who has to memorize dialogue and be able to emote, and respond, and be on my toes, it’s frightening.”
Alyssa previously shared a video to show the hair loss she was experiencing.
