Long COVID Symptoms

The damage is vast. COVID-19 has put us through the wringer, hasn't it? Some say it is the gift that keeps giving... that sounds too pleasant. Long COVID is more like the thief that keeps stealing! The symptoms areĀ broad.

Today, approximately 1 in 5 experience long COVID symptoms for five weeks. But 1 in 10 people continue to suffer a diminished quality of life for twelve weeks or longer.[1]

There doesn't seem to be an end as your whole body can be affected. Therefore, long COVID symptoms exhibit in many places. They can change and come and go over time. In a preprint study designed to characterise long COVID symptoms, on average, participants experienced 15 symptoms in 9 organ systems.[2]

In the beginning, this ability to manifest confused doctors. Thankfully, we have the data to clarify the long COVID symptoms. With several studies and anecdotal evidence, health professionals can positively make a diagnosis.

As a result, we can put together a list of symptoms. Typical symptoms include respiratory issues, heart and cardiovascular problems, an inflamed brain, liver and kidneys and gut damage.

Nevertheless, many suffer from fatigue, aches and pains, depression and anxiety, cognitive impairment or brain fog, low oxygen levels and blood clots.

Unfortunately, symptoms can worsen after physical or mental activities. There seems to be a relapse with exercise or mental activity and stress. Many, if not most, suffering from long COVID have reduced work or not working at all.

Other long COVID symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Tight chest and pain
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Mood changes
  • Insomnia - sleep issues
  • Heart palpitations or racing or pounding heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Pins and needles
  • Tinnitus and earaches
  • Sickness and diarrhoea
  • Abdominal pain and stomach aches
  • Loss of appetite, sense of smell or taste
  • Fever
  • Cough and sore throat
  • Headaches
  • Skin rashes
  • Hair loss

It's believed some people experience multisystem inflammatory syndrome after COVID-19. With this condition, organs and tissues can become severely inflamed. Doctors are noticing the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs can be affected.

Also, children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome may have a fever and various symptoms. These can include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes, or fatigue.[3]

To be honest, multisystem inflammatory syndrome sounds like another label for the symptoms, when long COVID will suffice. We already know SARS-CoV-2 damaged your body, which resulted in long COVID symptoms. Why do we need another syndrome to attach to it?

With that being the case, focus on fixing the damage caused by COVID-19 to recover from long COVID.
