Lingering Covid symptoms pose ‘really serious problem,’ researcher says

A new study out of Northwestern University shows that 85% of long-haulers — Covid patients who have largely recovered from the worst of the disease, but continue to experience long-term symptoms — experienced four or more neurologic symptoms. Those symptoms include brain fog, headaches, numbness or tingling, loss of taste and smell, and muscle pain.

Northwestern scientists call it the first study of its kind. It tracked 100 Covid patients, mostly women at an average age of 43.
