Other possible symptoms of long Covid can include:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Heart palpitations
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Not being able to think straight or focus (brain fog)
  • Change to your sense of smell or taste
  • Persistent cough.
