Do you have brain fog?
Brain fog has been found to occur in up to 20 percent of people after acute Covid-19 infection. Symptoms of brain fog usually occur 4-12 weeks after acute infection.
Even mild cases of Covid can cause brain fog. Symptoms can manifest as problems with word finding, concentration, problem solving, and working memory.
Covid-19 crosses into the brain and causes inflammation. This is damaging to the cells in the area of the brain responsible for memory. It also damages the insulation that surrounds our nerves. This causes messages to be transmitted more slowly along our nerves. That means that a person with brain fog may take longer to think of words or to formulate a thought.
We can help if you are experiencing brain fog or other symptoms related to long Covid, and we have recently established a clinic dedicated exclusively to this illness. Contact us at ME@physiciansqualitycare.com if you would like to be seen.
