The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the first corona confirmor in the United States in January. In the months that followed, more than five million confirmed cases have occurred, and the associated academia is still battling the virus. What is striking is that many of those who have been cured of Corona19 complain of long-term aftereffects after a long period of time.
This patient is referred to as “Longhowler” in the United States, but it is not a medical term, but he or she has symptoms and aftereffects of corona 19 after the cure. In other words, it means that the long-term symptoms.
According to Janice Johnston, medical director of Direct Health in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, “Most patients infected with Corona19 will fully recover within one to two weeks, but it takes up to three to four weeks for the more severe symptoms to be cured.”
“It is not yet clear which patient will show long-term symptoms called ‘Longhowler’. However, patients with high-risk or severe symptoms of corona19 are more likely to have long-term symptoms,” he said.
Long-term aftereffects have been reported, such as heart disease, nervous system problems, and memory problems. Corona19 After the cure, you have to fight these symptoms. It’s a question of sometimes getting angry, frustrated, losing power, or changing lives. HuffPost asked medical professionals about the ‘Longhower’ problem and asked what aftermath was left after corona 19 was cured.

Shortness of breath, cough, stuffy breasts
Johnston said the most common aftereffects are similar to those seen in the acute phase of the corona virus, and are the main symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough, and stuffy chest.
Corona 19 saw the biggest aftereffects of everyday life after a patient who had respiratory problems or blood clotting treatment after being cured, he said.
“These patients take a long time to restore lung function and overall muscle mass, and in severe cases require a number of medications, oxygen inhalers, and physiotherapy.”
Sandy Lairdan, 60, from Arizona, USA, said in an interview with HuffPost that his lung capacity has not been good since he received corona 19 two months ago.
“It’s hard to walk for more than 30 minutes. Swimming that is good for the lungs was little by little. Platelet levels were also significantly lower than normal. Blood flow tests showed that I had a big problem. X-rays took my lungs and luckily i was clean and i got hope,” he says.
Many patients complain of extreme fatigue as a common symptom of the long-term aftereffects of Corona 19. “I also suffer from extreme fatigue,” says Raredan. This fatigue will not go away easily.”
“This fatigue is a matter of body, mentality, and cognition,” said Aluko A. Hope, co-director of the Corona 19 Recovery Clinic at Montefiore Health System in the Bronx, New York. The body is as tired as it is to try to recover from this serious disease.”
“For example, recent corona 19 healers may have difficulty getting up and down the stairs immediately. Because the muscles have not yet fully recovered. It can also be physically challenging to answer calls or receive mail,” he added.

Hope also said that many patients suffer from memory loss after recovering from Corona19. Cognitive abilities may not be possible in the past. It can be difficult to go to the mart to see the chapters. It can be hard to figure out what to buy, walk for more than 30 minutes and think about various things.
Hannah Davis, an independent researcher and artist based in New York, said in an interview with HuffPost that she has been suffering from the aftermath for more than 140 days. Davis showed his essay and said it was hard to even check the characters.
“It wasn’t difficult. It was just a little longer than the regular character, and I wasn’t really focused. It was late at night and I thought I was a little tired. But an hour later I realized I was getting a fever.”
Davis also suffered from the aftereffects of the nervous system. He said he often felt his memory blurry and his sense of reality was dull, and he had forgotten what he had to do more often, and often missed out on medications he needed to take.
“After four months, I still have a fever every day, cognitive impairment, memory loss, and severe headaches. Blood pressure is high blood pressure above the basic 150 and feels severe muscle pain, even if nothing does. My body seems to have forgotten how to breathe.”

Heart model picture
Jennifer Hayes, an intensive care cardiologist at Columbia University Medical Center, said, “We’ve seen cases of permanent cardiac dysfunction among patients. My heart was weak and my blood supply was not working properly. Myocarditis and inflammation, which can cause chronic chest pain and cardiac arrhythmias, also occurred.”
Corona 19 can affect blood circulation and affect hearing. “Just as proper blood circulation is essential to our bodies, if blood is not circulating well, it leads to hearing loss,” said Shelley Borgia, ph.D. in hearing science at the New York State Hearing Aid Association.
“Corona19 Confirmors May Suffer From Blood and Oxygen Deficiencies, Which Can Significantly Reduce Human Capacity and Reduce Hearing.”
“I’ve seen cases of patients experiencing momentary hearing loss, difficulty understanding the language,” Borgia said.
“My patients often complained of tinnit. I experienced constant ringing or spitons in my ears. No one else can hear this, and each patient has a unique symptom.”

Symptoms that change from day to day
Christine Smith, 33, from New York, who was confirmed with the corona virus in March, suffered from a number of symptoms. “The first two weeks were really bad,” he said, adding that he still suffers the aftermath of Corona 19 five months later.
“After three months, I felt fine one day. My husband and I spent the day celebrating, but the next day I was sick again. Symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, chills, hallucinations, rapid heartbeat, heart palpitations, leg numbness, finger swollen, esophageal redness, extreme fatigue”
“I consulted every possible doctor and underwent every possible scan (neurological examination, cardiac ultrasound, brain CT scan, etc.). It all came out that there was no problem,” he said.
He said he is in solidarity with others who are experiencing the same symptoms.
“It is so important to inform you of this situation. I recently joined corona 19 ‘Longhower’ support group, and it was very helpful to know that I’m not the only one in this situation.”
He said that people who are experiencing these symptoms, including him, have improved on the situation than they were at first, but it is doubtful whether they will be able to completely return.
“It’s a lot better than it used to be. But he did not recover. I’m afraid I’ll have to live like this for the rest of my life. I feel like I’ve been caught somewhere in the middle of death and recovery.”
