Long COVID: Many clinical pictures in neurology are well known
Treatment of Post COVID/Long COVID in the Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf
Long COVID, also known as Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 Infection (PASC), Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC) or Post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC), refers to the long-term symptoms some people may experience after contracting COVID-19. These symptoms can last for weeks or months and can vary widely.
Long Covid research is still in its infancy. Internationally, work is being done at full speed to further develop the relevant guidelines.
However, we already know the typical side effects of this disease, such as
- anxiety disorders
- Chronic Fatigue (CFS)
- Impaired memory and concentration
- shortness of breath
- Sleep disorders
- Pain and weakness in the muscles and joints
- Non-specific symptoms
These clinical pictures are usually well known in neurology and are already being successfully diagnosed and treated in other contexts at Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf.
The exact incidence of Long Covid (prolonged symptoms after COVID-19 infection) is not yet fully known, but it is estimated to occur in a few percent of recovered COVID-19 cases.
