Her primary care physician told her she was just anxious, and that none of her other COVID patients had those issues. It is also consistent with a standard feature of another chronic illness: myalgic encephalomyelitis, also known as chronic fatigue syndrome, or ME/CFS. ME/CFS patients also report cognitive impairment — “brain fog” — and orthostatic intolerance, in which standing upright produces a racing heart rate and lightheadedness. The percentage of COVD patients who become long haulers is hard to pin down — in part because many early COVID patients were not tested in time to detect the virus. In July, the nonprofit Solve ME/CFS launched an initiative aimed at understanding similarities between long haulers and patients with ME/CFS.
