It is not uncommon to experience exhaustion, difficulty breathing, and chest pain that do not pass even months later after the illness.
Recently, the long-term effects of coronavirus infection are becoming known, as many have recovered since the second wave, but some of their symptoms are still present. These are being addressed in more and more research. As early as July, a small Italian study was published in the journal JAMA, according to which 87 percent of patients treated and healed in hospital had at least one symptom even after two months. In July, a U.S. organization called the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 35 percent of non-hospitalized coronavirus patients did not fully recover after two to three weeks. The CDC further updated its knowledge base in November and expanded its research to monitor long-term effects. It has become clear that the coronavirus affects the work of many organs outside the lungs, and the infection can affect the body in several ways. While most patients can return to a normal lifestyle and health after recovery, some struggle with some difficulties weeks or even months later. This can happen even in those who have otherwise gone through the acute phase of the disease with mild symptoms. According to the CDC, the most common long-term symptoms are: exhaustion, shortness of breath, cough, joint pain, and chest pain. Uncommonly, difficulty concentrating, depression, muscle aches, headaches, fever-ups, strong palpitations. “Today, it has also been shown that the coronavirus can have more serious complications in some cases, albeit less fortunately. However, there may be problems with lung function, acute kidney disease, sleep disturbances, severe mood disorders, and the cardiovascular system is most at risk for myocarditis. The extent to which this occurs is not yet known, researchers need to constantly analyze and evaluate it, he said. Gábor Müller
, a cardiologist at the Cardio Center. It should definitely be taken seriously if someone experiences fatigue, difficulty breathing, chest pain, edema on their body during the acute phase of the infection or even weeks or months later, the specialist called attention. Scientists say Covid-19 can affect the heart in two ways. It can directly cause myocarditis and increase the chances of blood clots, and indirectly worsen the condition of cardiovascular diseases. Heart patients and those whose symptoms do not resolve are recommended to be examined for coronavirus infection. This can be useful for athletes and anyone who wants to continue their previous active life safely, the cardiologist said. Those who are at risk from a phenomenon called long, or prolonged Covid, are also being researched, and for the time being, it appears that those infected who initially have a more severe course of the disease or produce more than five symptoms may expect the symptoms to be prolonged. Old age and female gender are also risk factors, as is the high body mass index, he wrote. Homemade Pharmacy
