I was infected with covid in aug. 2020 and then again in dec 2021. The first time I had covid, symptoms were very mild, brief sinus headache and congestion but also had mild difficulty taking deep breaths, it was a tightness in the chest. All my symptoms were gone in a few days except for the chest tightness and that weird issue where sometimes taking a deep breath was hard. It got better over the next year or so but recurred on occasion (maybe once a week or so for a few hours).
When I got covid in Dec 2021, I had no symptoms except my chest again felt a little tight and the breathing issue became more frequent, every day. Mind you its not a major issue, but I am concerned about permanently damaging my lungs. The question I have is, would it be ok to go back to my normal workout routine (Crossfit, i.e. high intensity aerobic workouts) or will I possibly wreck my lungs? How long should i wait? Anyone else had this issue?
The strange thing is my symptoms were SO mild but my chest is still experiencing tightness 1 month later (after my 2nd infection). Welcome any comments from those who may had a similar experience.
For background, I am a 29 yr old male, in great health and in excellent physical condition, I work out 5x or more per week at a crossfit gym.
