We've learned that recovering from COVID-19 doesn't end when you're no longer sick. Many experience lingering side effects, from more severe symptoms that keep you from returning to normal, to mild symptoms you might not even be aware of.
As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing more and more people affected by lingering side effects. Doctors began noticing increased adverse long-term effects in their patients.
