Long Covid

Almost 1 in 10 people who get Covid can have symptoms >12 weeks after their infection.

Long Covid is complex and has many systems involved causing a large variety of symptoms, ranging from breathlessness, severe fatigue, heart rate and blood pressure issues (dysautonomia), anxiety, gastric upsets, muscle aches and poor concentration, to name just a few.

Post viral similar syndromes aren't new but you have to understand that

just getting on with it and trying to gradually increase exercise does not necessarily work with this group and can make symptoms worse.

The National Institute of Clinical Guidelines cautions against the use of graded exercise therapy with Long Covid fatigue and other ME/CFS conditions. The Long Covid Physio website explains this well and the dangers of graded exercise and a misunderstanding of pacing

Evidence is showing that this population often have associated breathing pattern disorders, diaphragm weakness, chronic cough and fatigue that needs to be managed through pacing strategies.
