Health Hint: Long haul COVID

Taking care of your health is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Baylor College of Medicine experts have plenty of tips to help you stay healthy. This month’s Health Hint offers recommendations for COVID-19 long haulers.

“People who suffer from persistent symptoms even after recovering from the acute illness are known as long haulers. While some long-haul symptoms of COVID-19 appear harmless, ones that affect the lungs, heart and brain are more concerning. It is advisable to get an evaluation so that we can assess the impact of the illness on your health and evaluate different organs that could have been affected. Some patients are experiencing hard-to-explain symptoms, and they are anxious and frightened. Those are the patients I want to encourage to seek help and learn more about this illness.”
