Patients and Caregivers

Long Covid may include a wide range of ongoing health problems and these conditions can last weeks, months, or years. It may be difficult to diagnose and some people might not realize that their symptoms are in fact indicative of having Long Covid. In addition, people who were not aware that they had an asymptomatic Covid-19 infection may also not suspect they have Long Covid.

Some of the most common symptoms of Long Covid are:

  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Loss of Sense of Smell
  • Muscle Aches

However, there are many symptoms one can have after a COVID-19 infection, including:

  • confusion
  • forgetfulness
  • lack of focus and mental clarity
  • chest pain or tightness
  • difficulty sleeping
  • heart palpitations
  • dizziness
  • pins and needles
  • joint pain
  • depression and anxiety
  • earaches, tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • feeling sick, diarrhea, stomach aches, loss of appetite
  • a high temperature, cough, headaches, sore throat, changes to sense of smell or taste
  • rashes

If you believe you may have Long Covid, consult your physician.
