Lena Dunham said that when she was fighting COVID-19 in March, her body “rebelled.”
The former “girl” star publicly talked about her positive diagnosis in a lengthy Instagram post, detailing that she had endured 21 days of debilitating symptoms.
Dunham wrote: “It started with joint pain. I couldn’t distinguish it from the usual diagnosis, so I didn’t panic. But the pain soon was accompanied by impossible, overwhelming fatigue. Then, I got a fever 102. .”

She added: “Suddenly my body suddenly…resisted. The nerves in my feet burned and the muscles seemed to be unable to function. My hands were numb. I couldn’t stand the loud noise. I couldn’t sleep but I couldn’t wake up. “
The HBO actress also said that she lost her taste and sense of smell and was troubled by “coughing and coughing.”
The 34-year-old actress said that “not breathing after completing some simple tasks (such as drinking a glass of water)” is another side effect.

Dunham said that she never had to be hospitalized, but was treated by a doctor at home. One month later, her test result was negative, but she still showed symptoms, including “swollen hands” and “persistent migraine and fatigue”.
The doctor told the actress that she was suffering from clinical adrenal insufficiency, which meant that her pituitary gland “almost completely stopped functioning.”
Dunham has previously talked about how she suffered from arthritis and endometriosis.
