Dr Charles Shepherd (Hon. Medical Adviser to the ME Association) considers the emerging evidence for a post-Covid syndrome and the problems some people with M.E. are experiencing following Covid-19 infection:
We are starting to receive reports about previously healthy people who have had (or probably had) coronavirus infection and have not been able to return to their normal level of health and energy levels in the weeks following the onset of symptoms.
These reports are largely from people who have managed at home and not had a more serious infection that required hospital admission.
Some reports are from health professionals. It seems likely that some of them are experiencing what is called post viral fatigue (PVF), or a post viral fatigue syndrome (PVFS).
