‘Had a rough night and morning tbh – finally got an appointment with a cardiologist which really helped with my anxiety about my symptoms,’ Natasha said.

It comes after Natasha revealed on Tuesday she’d been experiencing ‘extreme fatigue’. 

The businesswoman told her 2.9 million social media followers she’d spent the entire day resting because she was feeling so exhausted.

‘I had a few great days and [I am] on the road to recovery, but today am fully back to resting and making sure I don’t push myself because my extreme fatigue is back,’ she explained.

Natasha added that acupuncture had also helped her in recent weeks.

‘My joint and muscle pain is definitely improving. Acupuncture has been my saving grace for those symptoms. I have been working on blood circulation, gut health and stress levels.’ 

Another of her symptoms is acid reflux, which she is trying to alleviate by following a strict diet.

‘Your gut health is the most important factor in having a strong immune system and although I eat very healthy and consider myself a healthy person, I clearly had an imbalance no doctor had previously pointed out to me,’ she said.

Although Natasha didn’t specify what foods she has cut out of her diet, she linked fans to a website that details a strict diet for acid reflux that involves avoiding coffee, alcohol, citrus fruits, spicy and fatty food, and chocolate.

Natasha revealed her battle with long Covid last week, saying she was still experiencing symptoms of the virus months after she was first diagnosed.

‘I have been going through something quite personal that I haven’t wanted to share until now,’ she said on Instagram.

‘Earlier in the year I got quite a bad case of Covid, I was physically down for weeks, hardly able to work or even get up at times.

‘After two weeks I was able to start to walk around or do activities for a few hours but was so fatigued I would need to immediately come home and rest.

‘The symptoms lasted for months, they included extreme tension headaches all day and night from when I woke up to when I went to bed, fatigue, extreme dizziness, joint and muscle pain and mild brain fog.

‘It really has been debilitating at times and I had a lot of anxiety and depression. I took it easy, ate healthily, did gentle Pilates, walking and stretching and slowly after four months started to see improvements.’

Long Covid refers to when individuals previously infected with the respiratory virus suffer ongoing symptoms longer than 12 weeks.

Some studies have shown as many as a third of all those infected with Covid suffer long-term symptoms, including brain fog, anxiety, fatigue and abnormal breathing.

'It really has been debilitating at times and I had a lot of anxiety and depression. I took it easy, ate healthily, did gentle Pilates, walking and stretching and slowly after four months started to see improvements,' she said
