What is Post-COVID syndrome (PCS)?
In the past year, we have seen many people are facing long-lasting health effects of COVID-19. There are several health issues that we have seen persist more than four weeks after being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19; collectively known as Post-COVID Syndrome (PCS). Also known as Long COVID these symptoms can appear even weeks after infection.
What Causes Post-COVID Syndrome?
Post-COVID syndrome is largely attributed to direct attack by the virus, low blood oxygen levels, cytokine storm (causing a great deal of inflammation throughout the body), nutrient depletion and blood clots that might clog different organs.
People with long COVID report experiencing different combinations of the following symptoms across different organ systems:
Post-COVID gastrointestinal symptoms: Problems with nutrient absorption, Loss of smell or taste, nausea, abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite, persistent diarrhoea.
Post-COVID respiratory symptoms: Tiredness or fatigue, Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, Vomiting, Cough, Fever.
Post-COVID Cardiovascular symptoms: Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations), Chest pain, Chronic fatigue, Abnormal heart rate, Chest pain, High blood pressure.
Post-COVID neurological symptoms: Difficulty thinking or concentrating (sometimes referred to as ‘brain fog’), Headache, Dizziness on standing.
Post-COVID kidney and liver damage.
This syndrome can also include multi-organ conditions that occur after COVID-19, like multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS) and autoimmune conditions. MIS is a condition where different body parts can become swollen. Autoimmune conditions happen when your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake, causing painful swelling in the affected parts of the body.
PCS is not limited to those who had a severe case of COVID. Even patients who have had minor bouts with COVID may continue to experience generalized fatigue, brain fog and other issues.
