Long COVID – Reader Response


In Response to: Keys to understanding long COVID

Dear Editor,

I am writing in response to your editorial about long COVID. I am fully vaccinated and boosted, and I got COVID in July 2022. 5.5 months later, I developed post-COVID lung syndrome. I was initially treated by my family physician who thought I was developing asthma. However, I was finally sent to a pulmonologist who diagnosed me with post-COVID lung syndrome. Even a year later, I still battle with symptoms. I am on daily inhalers and rescue inhalers. I get short of breath quite frequently and feel my heart rate race off and on. It is quite the challenge. I highly doubt that I will ever be able to fully recover from this and get off inhalers.
