Episode 248 Lingering Symptoms of COVID 19/ Long Haulers
Perhaps you are one of the millions of Americans with COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) and have not felt the same since. There is a condition you should be aware of, and it is called Post-acute COVID-19 syndrome (if symptoms and abnormalities occur from 4-12 weeks beyond acute COVID-19) or chronic post-COVID-19 syndrome when symptoms and abnormalities persist 12 weeks of the acute COVID-19 and not caused by other diagnoses. Another term that is used for people with chronic post-COVID symptoms is “long haulers. In any way you look at it, post-COVID issues occur when the immune system and other systems of the body continue to be compromised from the effects of the original COVID infection.
