Coronavirus long haulers often face fatigue, neurologic symptoms months later: study - Fox News
May 12, 2021 1 min, 5 secs

Some young, otherwise healthy patients who experienced mild coronavirus reported experiencing fatigue, respiratory issues and neurologic symptoms months after recovering from the illness, according to a new study.

While imaging studies appeared normal, patients reported "debilitating symptoms," building on the complexities of post-COVID-19 syndrome.

"Most patients in the study had no preexisting comorbidities prior to COVID-19 infection, and many did not experience symptoms related to COVID-19 that were severe enough to require hospitalization," said Dr.

"Most of the patients had normal or nondiagnostic lab and imaging results, despite having debilitating symptoms.

An analysis of 100 non-hospitalized "long haulers" found that most patients reported more than four neurologic symptoms, with "brain fog" being the most predominant

Igor Koralnik, chief of neuro-infectious diseases and global neurology in the Ken & Ruth Davee Department of Neurology at Northwestern Medicine, suggested this presented a "possible neuropsychiatric vulnerability" to incurring lingering symptoms associated with "long COVID." In the study at hand, 34% of patients experienced depression and/or anxiety prior to infection

"As the pandemic continues, we expect to see more patients who experience symptoms long after infection, and health care providers need to prepare for this, know what to look for, and know how to best provide for their patients' needs," Vanichkachorn added, advising that providers be selective in suggesting pricey, often inconclusive diagnostic tests
