The term “Long COVID” has been frequently spoken about in the news media as of late. If you or your clients still feel like they are recovering from lingering symptoms from a prolonged past COVID-19 infection, their symptoms may be due to a case of Long or Post COVID-19.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Long COVID or Post COVID-19 as a condition “that occurs in individuals with a history of probable or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, usually three months from the onset of COVID-19 with symptoms and that last for at least two months and cannot be explained by an alternative diagnosis.”
Anyone who has been infected with COVID-19 can later have symptoms of Post COVID-19 infection. Post COVID-19 affects everyone differently, both in duration and severity. The WHO definition includes the symptoms of:
Shortness of breath
Any others that have an impact on everyday functioning
Other symptoms also commonly reported include:
Loss of sensation in limbs, “pins and needles” feeling
Dizziness on standing
Fast-beating or pounding heart
It is essential to understand that no one of these symptoms on its own indicates a Post COVID-19 infection. It could be a sign of another illness; if symptoms are persistent, they should discuss them with their primary care practitioner.
The majority of people who suffer from Covid-19 recover within a few weeks; it is estimated that between 10 and 20 percent experience Post COVID-19 symptoms. In some cases, they may have even been non-symptomatic when they were first infected by COVID-19.
You can see from the list above that there are many reported symptoms of Post COVID-19.
Prevention is easier than finding a cure. The best way to prevent post-COVID-19 conditions is to reduce risk of a COVID-19 infection. Encourage your clients to get fully vaccinated or get boostered!
