"Post-acute COVID-19 Syndrome"

Posted by Merry, Volunteer Mentor @merpreb, Dec 1, 2020

There are a lot of people who have survived COVID-19 but who have had very lasting effects months after testing negative (long-haulers). Some medical professionals are brushing them off as emotional and others are treating each symptom. One covid-19 post patient, a doctor, says that she believes everyone because that's how she feels. The symptoms, fatigue, pain, the havoc wrung by COVID-19 sounds like chemotherapy. There is damage done by the virus and others from our own immune system attacking organs in order to rid the body of the virus. It's a quandary because there hasn't been enough time to study these side effects.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I just read an article about 10 year old twins who got ill in March with Covid-19. They are now so called long haulers, suffering from fatigue, neurological symptoms and cannot attend school. They are now enrolled in a clinical study for children.

@astaingegerdm– It's always so sad when children are ill. Covid can leave such devastating traumas to the body and mind.
