Q I got Covid last summer, and I still don’t feel well. I’m tired and “foggy-headed” quite often, sometimes for days on end. I had another Covid test, which was negative. How can I restore my health and vitality?
Many viral diseases have a “post-viral” syndrome, in which no discernible trace of the virus can be found, but health is not restored. An early and much documented example is post-polio syndrome. A more modern example is chronic fatigue, which is generally attributed to a significant infection with Epstein-Barr virus, often occurring in high school years, and known as mononucleosis.
It’s thought that the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 may have similar longterm effects in some people.
