Ómicron generates a “terrifying” symptom at night

When it seems that the Covid pandemic finally gave us a break, weeks before the end of the year the Omicron variant appeared, which has once again turned the world upside down because this, although in theory it seems to be less dangerous, is much more contagious, which has led to record numbers in terms of positive cases once again.

Since a trace of Ómicron was found, the scientific community turned to it in order to study it as closely as possible, with the intention of avoiding, once again, some health catastrophe like the one that was experienced with Delta.

It was thus that in previous weeks we were able to know how dangerous this new variant of the virus was, as well as its most common symptoms, which vary from those previously discovered in patients infected with Covid-19.

Although it has been found that Omicron symptoms resemble those of the common cold or flu, According to information provided by the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS), patients in that country have been observed who have presented a new symptom that many have classified as a true “nightmare” and the which only happens at night.

What are the symptoms of Omicron that usually cause discomfort at night?

According to the NHS, several patients have already indicated to their doctors that after having tested positive for the coronavirus by the Omicron variant, they have suffered something called “sleep paralysis”, which is that a person cannot move or speak when they first wake up or wake up. falls asleep.

This condition occurs when a person is unable to move their muscles due to being in sleep mode even though their brain is active. It can occur at any stage of sleep and can even cause certain hallucinations, such as thinking that another person is on you and prevents you from moving.

Despite how “scary” it may seem, the NHS says that this symptom is harmless and people could experience it once or twice in their entire lives.

At the moment it is unknown if this symptom is really related to the Omicron variant; However, experts consider that it is a secondary reaction because there is a lot of stress when someone receives a positive diagnosis of Covid, plus the effects already generated throughout this pandemic.

Night sweats, congestion, mental confusion and skin rashes are some other symptoms that some patients claim to have after becoming infected with Omicron.
