COVID Long Haulers' Syndrome

Nicknames are given to things that are familiar.  We characterize things that are well-known and commonly experienced.  The long-term effects of COVID infection are nicknamed Long Haulers' Syndrome.  Think of the long and endless highways traveled by long-hauling truckers. This nickname sets an expectation of long and endless disability.  

 

According to Mayo Clinic, infection by COVID-19 not only can impact the lungs, it can also attack the heart, brain, and blood vessels.  Mayo Clinic describes long term post-infection problems with mood instability and severe fatigue.  While older people are more likely to experience lingering effects of the infection, even otherwise healthy, younger people report feeling unwell for weeks to months after infection.  

At Fisher Behavior, we specialize in holistic, evidence-based treatment of brain and central nervous system dysregulations.
