The most dangerous symptoms of PTSD are severe headaches, dizziness, local neurological symptoms such as numbness in the arms and legs, and severe pain in the abdomen and legs. In a conversation with “Lenta.ru” they were named by the immunologist, Candidate of Medical Sciences Nikolai Kryuchkov. So he commented on the statement of the head of the clinical research department of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor Khadizhat Omarova that about a third of those who have suffered coronavirus three to four months after the illness cannot fully take care of themselves and do their daily activities.
On August 16, Omarova said that symptoms can persist after COVID-19 for several weeks or months, even if the person’s PCR tests turn out to be negative. According to the physician, in most cases, postcoid syndrome resolves within six months, but sometimes it can persist for a longer period.
Kryuchkov noted that depression is also a dangerous symptom of postcoid syndrome.
“There is a violation of the quality of life, the inability to work, as well as suicidal thoughts. It is quite dangerous, ”the doctor said.
According to him, it is important to understand that after COVID-19, the symptoms of the disease, as a rule, should go away within a month. With prolonged treatment for coronavirus, they can remain for up to two months. The symptoms that appear after two months are called the postcoid tail by the doctor. They need to be treated separately, the specialist concluded.
