Covid complication ?: Covid-19 can cause both respiratory and neurologic after effects, with fatigue lasting for several weeks or more post infection. The "reasons" for this variance in effects of Covid are complex and poorly understood, but may result from an exaggerated "citokine" response from actions of your immune system. Eventually symptoms will correct (revert to normal) in most cases.

COVID 19: Unfortunately both cardiac and pulmonary symptoms have lingered in many people. This is why "post-COVID 19" medical follow up's have been recommended for people with significant residual sequela.
