Today is Long Covid Awareness Day, and we want to ensure everyone knows what Long Covid is and how it can affect people. Long Covid is a term use to describe the effects that some people experience after contracting Covid-19. While most people who get Covid-19 will recover within a few weeks, some people will experience symptoms for months afterward. These symptoms can include fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, and trouble sleeping. Long Covid can also cause heart, lung, and kidney problems. If you have any of these symptoms, seeing a doctor and getting check out is important. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for Long Covid, but there are things that can help. If you have Long Covid, talk to your doctor and get your needed help.
Long Covid Awareness Day: What You Need to Know
It’s been almost a year since the Covid-19 pandemic started, and we are still learning new things about the virus daily. One of the most recent discoveries is the phenomenon of “long Covid,” when people experience symptoms for weeks or even months after contracting the virus.
According to the NHS, around one in 10 people who catch Covid-19 will experience long-term symptoms. These can include fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath.
There is still a lot we don’t know about long Covid, but it is thought that the virus can cause long-term damage to the lungs, heart, brain, and other organs. It is also unclear why some people seem more susceptible to long Covid than others.
There is currently no specific treatment for long Covid, but there are things that can help to ease the symptoms. These include exercise, relaxation techniques, and talking therapies.
If you have long Covid, it’s important to see your GP so they can rule out other conditions and give you the support you need.
The Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of this condition and help people living with it. If you know someone struggling with long Covid, show them your support on this day.
