Living a Healthy Life after COVID-19: The Mysteries of Long COVID

Living a Healthy Life after COVID-19: The Mysteries of Long COVID

The world has changed in many ways since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. While we now have vaccines and treatments that reduce the risk of becoming seriously ill, the COVID-19 virus is still with us. For some, a previous COVID-19 infection has left them with long-term effects known as post-COVID conditions or long COVID.

There are more than 200 reported symptoms associated with long COVID—some of which can be debilitating and interfere with daily life—including:

  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Cough
  • Heart palpitations
  • Brain fog
  • Headache
  • Problems sleeping
  • Lightheadedness
  • Change in taste or smell
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Stomach pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint or muscle pain

If you or someone you know is dealing with post-COVID conditions, you might be wondering, what now? What exactly are we dealing with, what can we expect and what treatment options are available?
