Who might need post-COVID-19 recovery services?
COVID long haulers and post-COVID syndrome are different names for the same health problem. These names describe people who continue to experience symptoms even though they’re officially clear of the COVID-19 virus.
Though some people have a higher risk of developing long-lasting COVID symptoms, everyone who has the virus is susceptible. Even young, healthy adults can feel unwell for months.
One study found that 20% of adults ages 18-34 struggle with long-term symptoms. These adults were never hospitalized and didn’t have any underlying health conditions to complicate their recovery.
The highest risk factors for developing post-COVID syndrome include people who had severe COVID illness, who needed hospitalization, are over the age of 50, and those with underlying conditions such as obesity, heart disease, or lung disease.
What symptoms indicate I need post-COVID recovery care?
Some patients never fully recover after the COVID-19 virus clears out of their body. Others feel better for a short time, then relapse and develop symptoms.
The most common post-COVID syndrome symptoms include:
- Brain fog
- Difficulty breathing
- Joint pain
- Chest pain
- Body aches
- Loss of taste and smell
Extreme fatigue and shortness of breath prevent many people from returning to the same activities they enjoyed before COVID-19.
