Post COVID Syndrome

Post COVID Syndrome is causing lingering symptoms in some Coronavirus survivors. Here are some things to know:

For many people around the world, COVID-19 does not end after the acute infectioon phase. Doctors are seeing a large amount of survivors develop symptoms that are “strikingly similar” to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A CDC survey of 292 people who overcame COVID-19 found that more than a third of the study had lingering fatigue for two to three weeks after testing positive. Fatigue is just one of the symptoms that people have reported over the past several months.

The most common Post COVID Syndrome symptoms that people are reporting even after testing negative for two weeks are:

  • Persistant cough with sore throat
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Post COVID lung disease
  • Anxiety, depression and insomnia
  • Cognitive issues similar to moderate traumatic brain injury
  • Digestive problems such as irritable bowel, nausea, bloating and abdominal pain

So What’s The Good News?

Acupuncture may play a beneficial role in post COVID symptoms!

Post COVID Syndrome

The problem of persistent cough after recovering from Covid is very common. Such patients complain of dry cough, throat irritation and scanty white phlegm. Acupuncture produces 90 per cent effective rate with no side effects.

Patients develop extreme fatigue following a bout of Covid due to depletion of their Qi, because of the decrease in activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. Acupuncture is given at selected acupoints for five days in a week for two weeks and 80 per cent patients have shown improvement in their fatigue levels.

Anxiety, depression and insomnia are very common in post-Covid patients and these can be effectively tackled by stimulating specific acupoints which release melatonin and the happy hormone — serotonin.
