COVID-19 has affected the lives of millions of people worldwide, and the effects of the virus can last much longer than just the initial illness. Many people who have had the virus are now reporting a wide range of lingering symptoms, commonly referred to as “long-haulers.”
Long-haulers are people who have had the virus and are still dealing with symptoms several months or even a year or more after their initial infection. While symptoms can vary from person to person, common complaints include fatigue, brain fog, muscle aches, and difficulty breathing. Many of these symptoms can be debilitating and make it difficult to go about daily life.
Unfortunately, the cause of long-hauling is still unclear. Some experts believe it could be an autoimmune response to the virus, while others think it could be due to inflammation caused by the virus. Whatever the cause, it’s clear that many people are struggling with long-term effects of COVID-19.
