Side Effects Post Corona Recovery – Long Term & Short Term
Now my wife & I are almost recovered from Covid 19. Well there are lots of people who get mild corona infection, recover completely and get back to normal selves. But there are many people who continue to have corona post recovery side effects & symptoms that prevent them from getting back to their normal lives.
This is a real problem and we are going to dive into this a little deeper in this article. Here is good news first!
Most people who have coronavirus infection recover completely within a few weeks.
However, some people — even those who have mild versions of the infection — continue to experience lingering post corona recovery symptoms & side effects, known as post-COVID-19 syndrome, even after having tested negative for the disease.
The most common symptoms and signs that continue even after having recovered from the illness include: Reduced Stamina, Reduction in Muscle Strength, Fatigue, Shortness of breath, Cough, Joint pain and Chest pain.
And other long-term signs and symptoms may include: Muscle pain or headache, Fast or pounding heart beat, Loss of smell and taste, Memory, concentration or sleep problems and hair loss or rashes
Although COVID-19 is seen as a disease that primarily affects the lungs, but it can also damage some other organs as well. Besides lungs it can damage heart and brain, which increases the risk of long-term health problems.

1, Older people
2. Individuals with pre-existing health conditions, especially cardiopulmonary issues, hypertension, diabetes or obesity.
3. And People who suffered with severe COVID 19 symptoms.
That said, even young, otherwise healthy people can also feel unwell for weeks to months after infection.
