Lena Dunham Details The Symptoms She Had While Affected With Coronavirus

Lena Dunham has revealed on her Instagram that she had COVID-19 coronavirus back in March.

The 34-year-old entertainer wrote to her fans on the platform about her experience with the virus.

“The fact is, the Coronavirus kills people. We know that. But it will also alter the bodies and lived experiences of so many who are infected, in ways they could never have predicted,” she wrote in her lengthy post, alongside a selfie with her wearing a mask.

Lena went on, sharing all the symptoms she had experienced through it all, citing she had “achy joints”, among other things.

While she was already used to dealing with chronic pain, she “didn’t freak out.”

“But the pain was soon joined by an impossible, crushing fatigue. Then, a fever of 102. Suddenly my body simply…revolted,” Lena shared, saying that she also had difficulty breathing and pounding headaches, numbness, difficulty sleeping and and a loss of taste and smell.

“This went on for 21 days, days that blended into each other like a rave gone wrong,” Lena wrote. “I was lucky enough to have a doctor who could offer me regular guidance on how to care for myself and I never had to be hospitalized.”
