7 signs you’re a covid long hauler, says new study

“It’s clear that many patients have had [COVID] symptoms lasting longer than 2 weeks, a month, or even 3 months,” says Chuck Vega from UCI Health, Department of Family Medicine, to Medscape. “What symptoms do we see with long-haul syndrome? We are seeing fatigue and dyspnea with exertion. Patients can experience difficulty with basic activities of daily living …. They have persistent cough, and some have chest pain. We know about the loss of smell and taste … which, although reversible, can take several months to improve.”
