What is Long Covid?

​Long Covid is an illness that occurs after a Covid-19 infection.   The symptoms include fatigue, breathlessness, headaches, brain fog, palpitations, anxiety, poor sleep and loss of the senses of taste and smell.  To be classed as Long Covid, the symptoms must be present for at least twelve weeks. 

Symptom Management

​Pacing is key to managing many of the symptoms of Long Covid.  On this site, you will find advice on ways to optimize your energy levels by, for example, eating well, controlling breathing, exercising gently, relaxing and managing your bedtime routine to aid restful sleep.
