Symptoms of Long Covid in Kids2021-09-29T20:36:51+00:00

Long Covid in kids occurs far more often than many realize and can occur after a mild or asymptomatic illness. Canada.gov cites that around %8% of children will have longer lasting symptoms.

One of the most frustrating things about Covid 19, is that the course of the virus seems to effect each individual differently. Healing from the long term effects can be even more convoluted.

There is no magic pill (so far) that can help. Long Covid is very much a multi system affliction, regardless if you were hospitalized. With the sheer amount of symptoms one faces, it’s difficult for both patients and physicians to create an appropriate plan.

There are no formal guidelines for diagnosing Long Covid, creating even more obstacles for doctors and patients. All Covid clinics require a positive PCR test to access support, effectively neglecting an entire subset of individuals who could not access or were refused testing in the early months of the pandemics. They may take a doctors referral, but without guidelines for doctors to follow, patients are not getting the diagnosis they need.

Finding help and treatment in Canada can be extremely difficult. There is very little information, no guidelines or consensus to guide patients or physicians.

We’re here to change that.

Mental Health

The full impact that Covid has on your mind is still being studied. Research is showing that Covid has drastic implications on your brain. Strokes, dementia. brain fog, mini blood clots, paranoia, psychosis, anxiety, terror. Survivors will wholeheartedly concur that whatever the mechanism, your mental health suffers a lot in Long Covid.

The full breadth of mental health implications after a Covid 19 infection has yet to be acknowledged, studied and published in Canada.

If you are post-covid and experiencing intrusive thoughts, severe anxiety, fear or thoughts of suicide, please seek immediate medical attention.
