Long COVID

Signs and symptoms of post COVID-19 syndrome (also known as Long COVID) develop during or following an infection consistent with the virus which continues for more than twelve weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis. The condition usually presents with clusters of symptoms, often overlapping, which may change over time and can affect any system within the body. It also notes that many people with post-COVID syndrome can also experience generalised pain, fatigue, persisting high temperature and psychiatric problems. 

Symptoms that may arise but not limited to: cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological, musculoskeletal, metabolic, renal, dermatological, otolaryngological, haematological and autonomic systems in addition to psychiatric problems, generalised pain, fatigue and persisting fever. Information provided by NICE, SIGN and RCGP
