Long Covid or Post Covid-19 syndrome: what it is, causes and symptoms

Long Covid or Post Covid-19 syndrome is a term that already worries and will continue to concern healthcare systems even after the critical phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is a multisystem disease that describes long-term health consequences, weeks or even months after the illness and includes symptoms that last more than 4 weeks after an acute infection.

The P.O.Y. chose the term “long covid” or “post covid syndrome” to describe these medical data and officially recognized it as a syndrome in 2021, of which the most common symptoms are:

  • Dyspnea with reduced exercise capacity
  • Persistent cough
  • Palpitation
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue and getting tired easily
  • Stomach ache
  • Headache
  • Sleep problems
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness or orthostatic (postural) hypotension
  • Skin rash
  • Unpleasant taste or smell
  • Inability to think or focus

 

Early diagnosis and treatment of symptoms is important!

Aegean Medical Service

As we have already mentioned, the syndrome of Long Covid or Post Covid -19 is diagnosed a few weeks after the beginning of Covid-19 symptoms, with the specific indications being a continuation of the acute phase symptoms, meaning they are still present.

According to the recent studies, 10-35% of people aged 18-49 who have been infected with the Covid-19 virus show long-term symptoms, while in people who are over 70 years old it can reach 85%.

The Post Covid Checkup examination by Aegean Medical Service includes a complete clinical and laboratory examination for the treatment and rehabilitation of patients affected by the coronavirus.

We must not forget that this syndrome affects a large part of the world population that has already been affected by Covid-19. Given the importance of the situation, we should understand that it is extremely important that a medical specialist examine a person who shows Post COVID symptoms.
