Could you be suffering from long COVID? Common signs to look out for.

What is long COVID?

The vast majority of people who have COVID-19 will start to feel better within a few days. However, for some individuals, these signs & symptoms can continue for much longer, with the record sitting at an incredible 411 days! This is what we know as long COVID.

Long Covid is still being studied, and doctors are continuously coming up with new ways to treat it. However, you might be asking yourself, what are the signs of long Covid? We thought we would take a closer look. 

The most common signs & symptoms of long Covid 

There are a wide range of symptoms that come with COVID-19, but some of the most common signs that you could be suffering from it include:


Fatigue is one of the most common signs that you could be suffering from long Covid. Fatigue is constant tiredness that can be physical, mental, or both. 

Shortness of Breath

Are you regularly out of breath? This is another common sign that you could still be impacted by coronavirus. 

Muscle Aches

Many long Covid patients also report that they find their muscles ache. This is reported to feel similar to muscle ache when suffering from the flu. 

Loss of taste & smell
