Actress and pro-Biden activist Alyssa Milano appeared on Dr. Oz and said she’s suffering from “extreme hair loss” and “brain fog” even though it’s been months since she believes she contracted COVID-19.
The “Who’s the Boss?” actress said “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.”
She added “Along with that also, I have the brain fog, which, again, as an actress, as someone who has to memorize dialogue and be able to emote, and respond, and be on my toes, it’s frightening.”
“My first symptoms were stomach issues and a headache like I’ve never felt before in my life, and just overwhelming fatigue,” Alyssa revealed. “That lasted for about three days. So I thought to myself, I should probably just go get tested.”
“First test came back negative,” she continued. “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?'”
“I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax,” Alyssa previously shared on Instagram. “I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying. I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt.”
