Are you often depressed and sad for no reason? This could indicate that you had a corona infection without noticing it. Because, as doctors from Germany are now reporting, cases of post-Covid are increasing – even in patients who only had a mild course.
While the term long covid describes symptoms of the disease that last up to four weeks, post-covid describes various symptoms that can persist longer after an infection, such as symptoms of exhaustion, reduced resilience or shortness of breath. “Those affected have a harder time remembering things, words can no longer come to mind. Many patients find this very stressful, ”said Paul Baum from the Leipzig University Hospital to the German broadcaster RTL.
It is surprising that men and women are particularly often affected with a mild course. After a Covid infection, the doctors also observe depression in some of the patients. The reason for this is not yet known; for example, theses on dysregulation of the vessels are being discussed.
