Long covid is an extremely forgotten about illness in its own right. People do suffer a long time, some with no end in sight. Symptoms are miss diagnosed or people are left to get on with it.. Some have said their covid illness was mild but the after effects were extreme. 

I think its another side of Covid that should be highlighted more and hopefully they will now..

There was a great article interviewing a few consultant specialists at the beginning of the year, and they were saying that we might end up with a class of disabled people called Long Covid patients, just like there was a group of "polio children" in the 1950's who were disabled for their entire lives as a result of it. My friend's wife is suffering from Long Covid and it's so debilitating. It's terrible. It really has ruined their life. I think we must hope that Long Covid eventually wears off and people recover from it.

You could take the following to your doctor or apply to get in the trial.  My husband just finished a 6 week course in a chamber and it was life transformation
