Some COVID-19 patients continue to have lingering effects well after the virus has left their systems, leaving many to wonder: Do I have long COVID?
Little is known about the phenomenon as research is still being conducted to learn more about its symptoms and the long-term effects it may have on adult’s — and children’s — health.
According to the CDC, many people who have dealt with post-COVID conditions have complained of muscle aches and heart problems, brain fog, fatigue, a loss of taste or smell, and several other symptoms after having been infected.
The timing and frequency of long COVID symptoms can also vary from person to person, and treatment can depend on symptoms.
Staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines is still the best way to prevent and help with long-haul symptoms.
