Long Covid therapy
Long/Post- COVID syndrome
Since 2020, more and more people are suffering from corona. In most cases, COVID 19 heals without secondary damage, but unfortunately more and more people suffer from long-term damage, the so-called Long COVID or Post COVID Syndrome.
Definition of Long COVID or Post COVID Syndrome:
The UK National Institute for Health and Care Excelence (NICE) guideline recommendation, already published at the end of 2020, defines Long COVID as health complaints that persist beyond the acute illness phase of a SARS-CoV-2 infection of four weeks, or also new onset. Post-COVID syndrome is defined as symptoms that persist for more than 12 weeks after the onset of SARS-CoV-2 infection and cannot be otherwise explained.
The Association of the Scientific Medical Society (AWMF) additionally names the worsening of existing underlying diseases as further possible manifestations of long/post COVID.
In rare cases, Long COVID symptoms also occur after vaccination against coronavirus.
Possible symptoms of Long COVID:
- chronic fatigue/exhaustion (fatigue)
- Shortness of breath even at light physical stress
- Muscle weakness
- Neurological disorders
- Heart pain
- Concentration disorders
- Sleep disorders
- Headache and/or sore throat
It is estimated that these persistent symptoms can occur in two to ten percent of all people with COVID, regardless of the severity of the corona disease.
We recommend that patients with the above symptoms be thoroughly examined by their family doctor. In addition, the heart and lungs should also be examined by a specialist for possible damage. However, often no organic changes are found.
Until now, there is no oconventional medical approved therapy for Long/Post COVID.
According to my own experience in my family practice and according to reports of recognized experts such as Dr. Egor Egorov, many patients suffering from Long/Post-COVID syndrome can be helped with oxygen cell therapy. This procedure supports the body to heal itself.
