Hello doctor,

Last year, I acquired a COVID-19 infection, and I still have some weakness and tremors during anxiety. These things I notice only after the COVID attack. When will I get back to normal? Will I get back to normal? Is there any treatment for this? I took treatment for COVID and got alright within a month. I had only mild infection, but its effects are still lingering. Kindly help me out. I want to feel completely alright. Weakness is making me tired all time and reducing my productivity.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Post COVID-19 condition is an illness that occurs in people who have a history of probable or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, usually within three months from the onset of COVID-19, with symptoms and effects that last for at least two months. Post-COVID conditions are synonymous with many names like long COVID, long-haul COVID, post-acute COVID-19, post-acute sequelae of SARS CoV-2 infection (PASC), long-term effects of COVID, and chronic COVID.

Recovered patients after acute COVID-19 illness may experience various signs and symptoms, including fatigue, body ache, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, etc., for months to years. Unfortunately, there is no reliable data to predict the exact duration as the pandemic is just two years old.

Post-COVID conditions are found more often in people with severe COVID-19 illness. Still, anyone infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can experience post-COVID conditions, even people with a mild illness or no symptoms from COVID-19. In addition, people who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 and become infected are at higher risk of developing post-COVID conditions than those vaccinated and had breakthrough infections.

Thus I suggest the following basic measures for you,

1. I Hope you are vaccinated against COVID19, including two doses, the booster dose. If not, complete your vaccination as per schedule.

2. Hydrate with water or watery, non-sugar added liquids such as fruit juices with three to four liters daily.

3. Have a balanced, regular diet under the advice of a practicing dietitian or nutritionist.

4. Avoid alcoholic and dehydrating drinks.

5. Moderate aerobic exercise, yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation for 30 minutes daily.

6. Sleep for eight to ten hours daily.

7. Get a master health checkup to know the specific organ system abnormality such as heart, liver, kidney, etc.

8. Keep following precautions of COVID 19 like mask-wearing, handwashing, social distancing, etc.

9. Take multivitamins.

Report to the doctor in case you develop symptoms of COVID19 again. Please revert in case you have any other queries.
