Clearing the Haze: Tackling Brain Fog in the Aftermath of Long COVID

Before we delve into long COVID and brain fog, let’s see who might be affected by it. This will give us a better understanding of the condition.

  • Do you find it hard to concentrate or remember things after having COVID-19?
  • Are you feeling confused or forgetful more often than before?
  • Have you recovered from COVID-19 but still feel mentally tired or unfocused?
  • Do you struggle with tasks that used to be easy, like reading or following conversations?
  • Are you experiencing mood changes or feeling more frustrated than usual?
  • Do you feel like your thoughts are cloudy or not as sharp as they used to be?

If any of these sound familiar, you might be experiencing brain fog due to long COVID.

WHY DOES BRAIN FOG HAPPEN WITH LONG COVID?

The exact reasons why brain fog happens after COVID-19 aren’t fully understood yet. It could be because the virus affects your brain directly, or it could be a reaction from your immune system. It’s also possible that the stress and anxiety from the illness play a part.

Brain fog from long COVID can happen to anyone who’s had the virus, even if they had mild symptoms or none at all.
