Most of those who contract “Covid-19” recover quickly within a few weeks. But some people, even those whose symptoms are mild, continue to have symptoms after an initial recovery. Older people with serious medical conditions are more likely to have symptoms of COVID-19.
Signs and symptoms that commonly persist over time include:
1 – Fatigue.
2 – Cough.
3 – Shortness of breath.
4 – Headache.
5- Joint pain.
Although Covid-19 is seen as a disease that mainly affects the lungs, it can damage many other parts of the body as well. Organ damage can increase the risk of long-term health problems. Organs that may be affected by COVID-19 include:
1 – the heart
Imaging tests taken several months after recovering from Covid-19 showed permanent damage to the heart muscle, even in people who had only mild symptoms of Covid-19. This may increase your risk of heart failure or other heart complications in the future.
2 – the lungs
The type of pneumonia commonly associated with COVID-19 can cause long-term damage to the small air sacs (alveoli) in the lung. The resulting scar tissue can lead to long-term respiratory problems.
3 – the brain
Even adolescents may develop several brain conditions as a result of Covid-19, including strokes and convulsions, which cause temporary paralysis. It can also increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
4 – Blood clots
Covid-19 can increase the chance of blood cells clumping and forming clots. Although large strokes can cause heart attacks and strokes, it is believed that most of the damage to the heart as a result of the Covid-19 virus is caused by small clots that block the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) in the heart muscle.
5 – lungs and other organs
Other organs affected by blood clots include the lungs, legs, liver, and kidneys. Covid-19 can also weaken blood vessels, which may contribute to long-term problems with the liver and kidneys.
6 – Fatigue and mood problems Covid 19 injuries, which are characterized by severe symptoms, require admission to the intensive care unit, where patients are provided with devices to help them breathe. Simply going through this experience and surviving it increases a person’s likelihood of developing depression and anxiety
