What is Long COVID?

Are you one of the almost 1 billion people who contracted the SARS-CoV-2 virus? At least 10% of the billion didn't recover within 6 months.

These people have what is referred to as long COVID or post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC).

Long COVID can present with dozens of disabling symptoms typical of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), including:

  • Central nervous system symptoms like fatigue, headache, and problems thinking clearly and quickly;
  • Autonomic nervous system symptoms like postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS);
  • Low cellular energy causing severe fatigue and post-exertional malaise;
  • Reactivation of viral infections;
  • Disturbances to the gut microbiome causing irritable bowel symptoms and generalized inflammation;
  • Cardiovascular and pulmonary symptoms including increased heart rate, shortness of breath, and decreased exercise capacity;


Long COVID, like ME, has been met with skepticism by physicians and researchers, causing those who suffer from it considerable frustration and anger.

The sheer number of people suffering, however, is pushing the research establishment to study the causes and possible treatments.

That research clearly shows that long COVID is real and serious.

Dr. Stein's interview on the CBC Alberta provincial late news on April 18, 2021

- long haul COVID


- 10 to 30% of people who contract COVID 19 don't recover fully as expected. These lingering symptoms are referred to as "long  haul" or "Post-COVID".
- The symptoms of Post-COVID include severe fatigue, post exertional malaise, unrefreshing sleep, brain fog and unstable blood pressure - very similar to symptoms of ME/CFS.
- Number one take home message if you have long haul COVID is to PACE. This means living within your energy bank account. Try to save a bit of energy every day so the body can use it to heal.
- We hope this sensible self-management will help people with long haul COVID recover.
