While post-COVID symptoms can range from joint pain, brain fog to chest pain, a recent study published in the journal JAMA has found 2 of the most common symptoms experienced by individuals post-recovery.
Patients, who had earlier been discharged from the hospitals after recovering from COVID-19, were evaluated and observed on the basis of their prolonged symptoms. The study facilitated a standardised questionnaire that was given to each participant, following which data on specific symptoms were analyzed. Researchers asked the individuals to list down the symptoms that were present and absent during their course of illness and whether they were still prevalent at the time of their visit.
It was found that 87.4 percent of the recovered patients complained of experiencing at least one symptom, two of the most common being fatigue and dyspnea.
