This syndrome can occur due to lack of early treatment for COVID-19 and or receipt of one or more of the COVID-19 vaccines. Unfortunately, many clinicians in the healthcare field neither recognize or treat this syndrome. In addition, standard lab tests may not demonstrate abnormalities, so patients are often left without answers.
Symptoms of LHCS can include:
- Joint Pain / Muscle Aches
- Foggy thinking
- Sleep difficulties
- Shortness of breath and more
The severity of symptoms vary based on the individual and does not correlate with the length of COVID illness. Symptoms of LHCS can be similar to chronic inflammatory response syndrome and or a variant of mast cell activation syndrome
The good news is treatment is available for this syndrome ! Ivermectin, low dose naltrexone, prednisone, vitamin D, turmeric, omega 3 fatty acids are some of the medications that are being used to treat this syndrome. However, the longer one waits for proper treatment, the more time it will take for symptoms to improve.
