If you’ve had COVID-19, you already know that symptoms can range from mild to severe and last for days to weeks.
Recovering from COVID-19 doesn’t look the same for everyone, either. For some individuals, symptoms linger well beyond testing negative for the virus — a condition now being called post-COVID syndrome.
The most common symptoms of post-COVID syndrome include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Joint pain
- Chest pain
- Brain fog, including an inability to concentrate and impaired memory
- Loss of taste and/or smell
- Sleep disturbances
