When it comes to COVID-19, testing negative is only the first step in recuperation. Medical practitioners have realised that COVID-19 is not always merely a two-week illness. Many have reported that they experience lingering effects of the virus, extending to weeks or even months after they have “recovered”. Experts have termed this Post-COVID Syndrome or long-haul COVID-19.

What are the indications of Post-COVID Syndrome?

Symptoms of this syndrome include:

  • Fatigue
  • Joint pain
  • Chest pain
  • Lowered cognitive function
  • Sleep disorders

Although the exact symptoms vary, fatigue seems to be the most commonly found. The symptoms that appear sometimes bear no relation to any preexisting conditions or symptoms experienced during the illness. For example, someone with no history of heart disorders may have an inflamed heart muscle due to Post-COVID Syndrome. In some cases, patients have also reported that they experience gastrointestinal issues, loss of sense of smell and rashes among other symptoms.

Who is at risk?

Symptoms of this syndrome include:

People who are more likely to develop this syndrome are those above 50 years of age, those who experienced severe symptoms during the illness and those with underlying conditions. However, it has been noted in some cases that even those with mild or no symptoms have also felt the effects of Post-COVID Syndrome. In order to battle this efficiently, it is advised to visit a primary care physician for a general assessment at regular intervals post testing negative.

Post-COVID Care

Specialised care and regular check-ups after testing negative are important components in the Post-COVID regimen. Each person may require personalised treatment plans depending on the symptoms and their severity. However, the most commonly recommended tests include

  • Body Test analysis
  • Complete Blood count
  • Liver function test
  • Renal function test
  • Spirometry
  • Chest X-Ray
  • Thorax CT scan

At HealthBay, we offer a specialised package to examine these important and commonly affected organs. The Post-COVID check-up packages at HealthBay start from AED 899. Our physicians will guide you at every step to take any additional tests as required.
