Do you have symptoms of Long Covid?

Most COVID infections go away within the first couple of weeks, but if your symptoms are lasting much longer you may be suffering from Long COVID.

This means your symptoms carry on after your COVID infection has gone away, usually for 12 weeks or more. Symptoms are varied and can even change over time. They include:

Breathing and chest problems (breathlessness, tightness in the chest, a persistent cough) Feeling very tired Fever Brain problems (difficulty focusing, headache, dizziness, trouble sleeping, delirium) Stomach problems (stomach aches, nausea, sickness and diarrhoea, weight loss) Joint and muscle pain

If you're worried about your symptoms, please contact your GP who will decide on what tests or treatments you need to manage your symptoms.

If they think you have Long COVID they may refer you to the local Long COVID service.
