Post COVID-19 Syndrome (Long Haul Syndrome) at Mayo Clinic


Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn, an Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine in the Division of Preventive, Occupational, and Aerospace Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, reviews his article appearing in the July 2021 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, looking at the first 100 patients presenting with long-term effects from COVID-19 infection, including, headaches, fatigue, confusion or brain-fog, sleep disturbances, among others.

He notes which patient populations are most affected by these symptoms, considers the effect they have on patients’ well-being, and notes that patients do get better over time, so there is hope for patients suffering from these long-term symptoms from their COVID-19 infection.
