How to Deal with Post-Covid Syndrome?
The number of Coronavirus patients is growing rapidly. Many patients or Covid-19 survivors continue to have symptoms for many weeks or months after getting sick. They struggle with symptoms ranging from muscle aches to memory issues. These symptoms are known as a post-COVID-19 syndrome or long COVID-19.
Around the country, hospitals and medical centers are set up as clinics. They have added staff to evaluate and treat patients with long-term COVID-19 symptoms which last for weeks or months after their initial illness or diagnosis.
Some patients with long-term Covid symptoms are experiencing a little-known syndrome called POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system that has a variety of causes, and it existed before Covid. Some doctors believe that the coronavirus is triggering this disorder in people. People might be experiencing symptoms such as high heart rates, dizziness, and extreme fatigue after small movements or minor physical activity.
Long-Term COVID-19 Symptoms
A mild case of COVID-19 can have some symptoms, such as headaches, extreme fatigue, and body aches that make you feel uncomfortable. Also, we are observing that a number of people who have had COVID-19 continue to feel the same effects of COVID-19 illness for weeks to months after recovering from the worst of their symptoms or complications. The most common symptoms are:
Shortness of breath
Muscle pain or a headache
Fast or pounding heartbeat
Loss of smell or taste
Memory, concentration problems
Rash or hair loss
The higher percentages of people with COVID who will go on to develop post-COVID syndrome are:
Adults over the age of 50
People who experienced a more severe case
People with health conditions such as cardiopulmonary issues, hypertension, diabetes, or obesity
