Alyssa Milano Says She is Suffering “Extreme Hair Loss” and “Brain Fog” Months After Covid-19 Diagnosis


Actress Alyssa Milano is continuing to make the news due to her outspokenness against President Donald Trump.

The actress never misses a chance to villify the president at any given moment.

One such method she has used is that of pointing out Trump’s coronavirus response over the last year.

While President Trump appears to have defeated Covid-19 in roughly a week, Milano is still claiming to be suffering lingering effects from her own diagnosis from over 5 months ago.

Milano claimed on Dr. Oz’s show that she is still suffering “extreme hair loss” and “brain fog.”

USA Today has more on Milano's Claims of lingering Covid symptoms:

Alyssa Milano is detailing the lingering effects COVID-19 has had on her life as an actress, along with the effects on her physical health.

On Friday's episode of the Dr. Oz Show, the 47-year-old actress said her initial symptoms were "stomach issues," "a headache like I've never felt before in my life" and "overwhelming fatigue" that lasted for three days. Later, she said, she started experiencing other symptoms such as hair loss.

"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," Milano said, adding that she experienced "brain fog" as well.

"As someone who has to memorize dialogue and be able to emote and respond and be on my toes, it's frightening."

Milano hopes that by sharing her personal experience, she can help educate others about the severity of  this "debilitating type of illness."

"I felt that there were a lot of conflicting opinions about what was going on and how severe the virus was and whether or not you should wear a mask or not wear a mask... and so I felt that it was important to share my experience so that people could understand the severity of what it is.

Milano discusses her Covid experience with Dr. Oz

MSN with more on Milano's initial symptoms:

Milano detailed her initial symptoms and the early testing process.

“My first symptoms were stomach issues and a headache like I've never felt before in my life, and just overwhelming fatigue,” she shared. “That lasted for about three days. So I thought to myself, I should probably just go get tested."

"First test came back negative," she concluded. "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?’'

While nobody with a heart should wish the experience of Covid-19 or any such illness on anybody else, Milano seems to be oblivious as to how tone deaf she comes across when describing the lingering effects of Covid particularly hard, "especially when you're an actor."

One also can't help but wonder if some of the symptoms that Milano is suffering from might have something to do with her well-documented case of 'Trump Derangement Syndrome.'
