Below, Dr Jess Braid discusses what Long Covid is, reasons for this & ways to deal with this.
What is Long COVID?
10% of patients with COVID-19 report fatigue (tiredness), breathlessness, brain fog and in some cases pain for 3 weeks or longer. This occurred in some people who only had mild cases of COVID-19. There seem to be a proportion of people who have ongoing symptoms for some time after COVID-19 has resolved. In some people these disappear spontaneously, in others they are still present up to 6 months later.
