Long-Haul COVID Cases Cast New Light on Chronic Fatigue Sufferers

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.
