The 170 symptoms being reported by long term coronavirus sufferers

Brain fog, bed wetting and itchy skin are among an exhaustive list of symptoms being reported by long term sufferers of coronavirus.

These are just come of the conditions which are being reported by people who are continuing to have symptoms following recovery from the virus

The findings come from the Post Covid Syndrome Group which was set up on Facebook for those suffering symptoms long after the initial flare-up of coronavirus has passed.

The group was set up by creator Louise in May, with up to 200 people a day signing up.

More than 3,000 members from more than 60 countries have joined the group, and Birmingham Live reports they have reported more than 170 symptoms.

Group creator Louise said: “People are experiencing so many symptoms – we’ve counted 172.

“GPs aren’t believing them, they say they’re making it up.

“A lot of us in the group fell ill in March and people either stayed home not to put pressure on the NHS or like me got a void test or didn’t get tested at all.

The thing is doctors will have assumed we recovered.

“Employers have no idea what these people are going through either.”

Here are the symptoms recorded by Louise after speaking to members:
