Managing the symptoms of Long COVID with The Perrin Technique
Updated: Jan 15
The long-term effects of coronavirus, also known as a long COVID, have been investigated perplexing researchers and doctors for the past two years. Long COVID is when COVID symptoms persist for months or even years. It has attracted a lot of attention as millions of people across the world have been affected by the virus and felt that they did not fully recover even after testing negative. Long COVID has a lot of resemblance to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS/ME. However, during and since the pandemic this is the first time that so many millions of people have been experiencing symptoms like this.
There is no globally accepted definition of Long COVID, but it is recognised as symptoms that last typically for a month or longer after the onset of the illness and there are no alternative diagnoses. Sometimes the symptoms can go away but may return after a certain period of time. Many people find that they recover after their infection, however, a few months later they notice symptoms which they did not have before being infected by COVID-19.
Symptoms vary from patient to patient, common symptoms include tiredness, fatigue, a persistent cough, a difference in breathing and even a loss of taste or smell. Other symptoms include a change in heart rate and blood pressure, headaches, aches and pains and even changes in cognitive function. CFS/ME is similar, where patients experience extreme fatigue to an extent where they can eventually become bed-bound. The symptoms can be different between patients that it is difficult to diagnose or treat these diseases. Long COVID and CFS/ME can affect people of all ages, genders, medical conditions and lifestyles.
