After effect: Coronavirus can cause chronic fatigue syndrome, sleeping problems
New York: Don’t breathe easy if you have recovered from coronavirus. There are other side effects that may follow. You can fall ill again even after recovering from coronavirus. Researchers have said that people who have recovered from COVID-19 may experience severe fatigue syndromes.
Chronic fatigue syndrome
At times viral infections do lead to long-term fatigue problems. There are many cases which bear testimony to this fact. There have been instances when people have experienced chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) after viral infections. This disease is also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).
People who have developed CFS/ME experience extreme fatigue and a range of other symptoms. They suffer from body pain and sensitivity to light, but why such symptoms occur is still not clear.
So naturally the though comes to mind regarding the side effects of coronavirus, whether it can lead to similar fatigue syndromes? There is a possibility it can happen.
