About one out of every three people who had COVID-19 develop symptoms of long haul COVID, defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a group of symptoms that linger for weeks or months after a COVID-19 infection. These symptoms can cause problems in multiple organs and body systems at once. Even people who had a mild case of the virus can have persistent COVID symptoms that disrupt their daily life.

What are some of the of Long Covid symptoms?

Neurological symptoms:

One in three people with COVID experience neurological symptoms. These symptoms can linger for weeks or months after the initial COVID-19 infection. As leaders in neurology, our experts treat cognitive problems and issues that affect the nervous system, including:

  • “Brain fog” (difficulty thinking, reasoning or concentrating) after COVID-19
  • Eye issues, including blurry vision or double vision
  • Headaches
  • Loss of taste and loss of smell (parosmia)
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)


Cardiovascular symptoms:

Severe COVID-19 infections can cause long-term heart damage. But people who had mild symptoms can also have recurring or chronic heart and vascular problems. These include:

  • Blood clots and vein (vascular) damage
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness when standing up (orthostatic hypotension)
  • Fast-beating or pounding heart (heart palpitations)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Respiratory symptoms:

Can cause persistent problems with the lungs and oxygen levels in the body. Many people experience lingering:

  • Cough
  • Exhaustion after little exertion
  • Fatigue
  • Hypoxia (low levels of oxygen in tissues throughout the body)
  • Shortness of breath


Mental health symptoms:

A range of psychological problems can occur after a COVID-19 infection. These issues can result from the virus itself or from the stressful experience of being treated for a serious illness. They may also come with the challenges of living with long-term physical symptoms. Mental health effects include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
