MAFS' Martha reveals 'weird, ugly symptoms' two weeks after Covid

Two weeks after testing positive for Covid-19, former Married At First Sight star Martha Kalifatidis has shared that she's still suffering from some symptoms that she's described as "weird" and "ugly".

Taking to Instagram on Sunday night, the 33-year-old said, "I know I've been so MIA on here, if I'm being honest I still feel pretty s**t after Covid and it's been over two weeks.

Martha continued, "I've just got all these weird, ugly lingering symptoms like I don't really do much, I can't be bothered ever leaving the house.

"I still can't taste I still have like blocked ears, blocked nose. Anyway, I'm taking all the supplements I'm doing all the things, but like, f**k I feel like s**t."


She later added that just standing up while cooking had her "puffed out".

In another Insta Story, she is seen running up a small hill and is quickly out of breath.

"I have [some] work to do... Covid was cruel to me. I was out of breath after 30 seconds," she wrote.

Last week, Martha revealed she'd lost her sense of taste, but despite the frustrating symptom, she said she was beginning to feel like herself.

When she first shared with her followers that she and fiancé Michael Brunelli had the virus, she said, "So we went to Christmas with our family, someone at Christmas had Covid and we're pretty sure we got it at Christmas.

"Some other people in my family have Covid. [Her mother] Mary, by some miracle, does not have Covid. And so we're just staying in the room at home."

Speaking about her symptoms, Martha described it as "cold and flu and tonsillitis and gastro all in one".

"Covid sucks, it is so f**king s**t," she said. "Some people are like, 'Oh it's just a cold'. It is just a virus, but it is a pretty s**t one. Michael actually got hit really hard with it.

"So there's actually like a sore throat, chest burning, nausea, vomiting, fever and then chills. If you can avoid this, avoid it. You don’t want to get Covid, especially now when it's the holidays."

Martha added, "Just try not to get it yourself. Wear the f**king masks, carry sanitiser and sanitise and do all that s**t because it helps, it really f**king helps."

"Honestly, good luck to anyone who gets Covid and they haven’t been vaccinated."

On Michael’s Instagram Story, he added that he’s been experiencing night sweats, body aches and a lethargic feeling, but was doing much better after the first two days.
