Long Covid

What is Long Covid?

Long covid is a term used to describe those who are still unwell at least three months following their acute covid19 infection.The symptoms are widely varied, as the virus attacks many parts of the body. However, the underlying mechanism appears to be brain and nerve inflammation, and most patient symptoms are a function of the damage to the nervous system. With time, some people improve, but many with long covid, up to thirty percent in some studies, including studies we have done ourselves in Ireland, have persistent pain syndromes, brain fog, head pressures, concentration problems, energy problems, and mood problems. This can be mild or can be debilitating.

The main focus of treatment needs to be 'neuro rehabilitation', with training the brain to repair the damage done, and taking medicines and supplements that will decrease the inflammation and repair the immune damage done by the COVID19 virus.

Our Treatment Plans

At initial consultation, a full history and exam is performed as indicated. Blood tests may or may not be necessary. The treatments are individualised, based on the presenting symptoms, but often include a series of supplements and melatonin which we have piloted in the treatment of Long COVID. LDN appears to have an anti-inflammatory effect, and some kind of immune modulating effect.

A treatment plan is designed, and six months of prescriptions are provided for each patient, as this is the timeline for patients to start improving. A repeat appointment is advised at six months.
