More than half had fatigue

New research released this week found that more than half of COVID patients in one study reported fatigue they just couldn't shake, ranging from mild to severe.

The odd, growing list of Covid-19 symptoms, explained

  The odd, growing list of Covid-19 symptoms, explained Fever, Covid toes, and a loss of taste: Why are Covid-19 symptoms so weird and varied?Beyond the most common symptoms of cough, fever, and shortness of breath, patients have reported other troubling maladies: vomiting, rashes, a loss of taste and smell, muscle aches, and even Covid toes.

"Fatigue is a common symptom in those presenting with symptomatic Covid-19 infection," said Dr. Liam Townsend, an infectious disease doctor at St. James's Hospital and Trinity Translational Medicine Institute in Dublin, Ireland, in a statement. "While the presenting features of SARS-CoV-2 infection have been well-characterized, the medium- and long-term consequences of infection remain unexplored."

Researchers interviewed 128 people who'd been diagnosed with COVID-19, an average of two-and-a-half months after their infection (by which time it was expected they'd recovered). But 52 percent reported persistent fatigue. It didn't matter how serious their bout with coronavirus was—even people with minor infections reported lasting fatigue.

"A survey conducted by Dr. Natalie Lambert of Indiana University School of Medicine and Survivor Corps analyzed the long-term experiences COVID-19 survivors are having with the virus. The COVID-19 'Long Hauler' Symptoms Survey Report identified 98 long-lasting symptoms." Click through from least common to most common to see if you've experienced any.

The results "may identify a group worthy of further study and early intervention," the researchers said.

The study, which has not been peer-reviewed, will be presented at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Conference on Coronavirus Disease (ECCVID) later this month.

Latest evidence of "Long COVID"

It's the latest evidence that coronavirus is not the flu—it has a constellation of symptoms, a wide variety of outcomes, and can affect body systems from head to toe. As the pandemic wears on, researchers have reported that the virus's effects can last for months in "long-haulers," who just can't get back to feeling the way they did before contracting COVID-19.

Many experience a phenomenon similar to chronic fatigue syndrome, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious-disease expert, on Aug. 13. "We're starting to see more and more people who apparently recover from the actual viral part of it, and then weeks later, they feel weak, they feel tired, they feel sluggish, they feel short of breath," he said. "It's very disturbing, because if this is true for a lot of people, then just recovering from this may not be okay. You may have weeks where you feel not exactly correct."

The First Sure Signal You Have Coronavirus

  The First Sure Signal You Have Coronavirus “This order is especially important to know when we have overlapping cycles of illnesses like the flu that coincide with infections of COVID-19,” said Peter Kuhn, professor of medicine, biomedical engineering, and aerospace and mechanical engineering at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. "Doctors can determine what steps to take to care for the patient, and they may prevent the patient's condition from worsening." require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Other studies had similar findings on fatigue

According to the Long Hauler Symptom Survey at the Indiana University School of Medicine, among the top 50 long-lasting symptoms of coronavirus, fatigue is #1—reported by 1,567 of 1,567 patients surveyed.

Scientists aren't sure why the virus causes fatigue that's so prevalent and long-lasting. Fatigue can be caused by the malfunctioning of a wide variety of body systems and processes, and it isn't yet understood how the virus produces the severe effects that can lead to the worst outcomes: inflammation that can stop the lungs and heart from working altogether.
