Millions of people continue to suffer from long Covid — the constellation of symptoms that can linger months after an infection. The chronic illness can include feelings of exhaustion, cognitive problems, shortness of breath, headaches, joint pain and more. Studies estimate that perhaps 10 to 30 percent of people infected with the coronavirus may develop long-term symptoms.
This week, we’re asking you for resources that may help.
If you’ve had long Covid and managed to treat or deal with some of your symptoms — even a little — we’d like to hear about it. We’re not looking for medical advice, but the approaches or things you have tried that made your situation better. Perhaps it’s a certain type of physical therapy that you hadn’t tried before, a support group you found or your go-to brand of candles for scent training.
