The coronavirus is a deceptive disease. The majority of people suffering from coronavirus disease recover fully in a couple of weeks. But some people, even those with benign versions of the illness continue to develop symptoms after their first cured.
These people sometimes present themselves as 'long haul carriers' and the condition is known as post-COVID-19 syndrome or extended COVID-19.
Read on to see if you have these symptoms and to protect yourself and others, don't miss the COVID-19 symptoms that usually show up in this order.
Long-term symptoms of COVID-19 could be summed up by the old quote: 'I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.' The several symptoms of COVID-19 experience are as varied as people are. For some, it is clear a viral disease has gotten hold of them and for others, they are not even aware they have been infected.
The most common symptoms could also be the same ones which last for weeks or months known as long-haul symptoms.
A profound fatigue is generally the most common. Muscle and joint pain could happen and is usually related with weakness and lethargy in individuals with lasting symptoms.
The virus is a respiratory disease and could cause lasting damage. Many people are experiencing a prolonged recovery from these symptoms. This could vary from a nuisance to use of oxygen therapy for prolonged periods.
Frequently the most bothersome long haul symptom is described as brain fog. This difficulty with concentration and thinking coupled with profound fatigue has resulted in some of my patients taking prolonged time off work and requiring to look for mental health treatment because of the stress of not knowing when they will recover.
People have expressed long term pain in their joints (arthralgia), following COVID infection and recovery from the acute period of the illness.
A prolonged loss of smell or taste is a tell-tale sign that you have previously had COVID. A common clue left behind by the virus is a lingering loss of smell or taste, even if benign. If you can't taste your morning coffee or breakfast as you did, it could be a persistent symptom of getting the virus.
Fever is a prevalent symptom of COVID-19. Within a few months of experiencing a high fever or recovering from an illness, many people experience noticeable hair loss. While many people think of this as hair loss, it is actually hair shedding.
It occurs when more hairs than normal enter the shedding phase of the hair growth life cycle at the same time. A fever or disease could force more hairs into the shedding phase.
COVID-19 primarily affects your lungs but as with any other viral disease, it leaves lasting damage to other organs of your body as well. Some other organs that may be damaged include -
COVID-19 causes extensive heart damage and makes survivors prone to heart attacks.
The disease causes stroke, violent seizures & Guillain-Barre syndrome (temporary paralysis) in Covid long-haulers. It can also cause Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s disease in the long run.
The air sacs in the lungs can be damaged extensively & can cause pulmonary diseases in the long run.
COVID-19 makes you more prone to blood clots which can cause heart attacks & strokes.
It remains unclear how COVID-19 will impact people over time. Although, researchers suggest that primary care physicians closely monitor people who have had COVID-19 to see how their organs are functioning after recovery.
Many large medical centers are opening specialized clinics to offer care for people who have persistent symptoms or associated diseases after they recover from COVID-19.
It is crucial to remember that most people who have COVID-19 recover quickly. But the potentially long-lasting complications from COVID-19 make it even more crucial to reduce the spread of the disease by following precautions like wearing masks, avoiding crowds and keeping hands clean.
As much as we think we’d like to know what exactly Covid operates & how long the pandemic’s gonna go on, we can’t predict its course.
Its best to take preventive measures to avoid contracting COVID-19 in the first place. Call us on (214) 475-6078 to book an appointment today.
