Side effects in some individuals who have had COVID-19 can cause neurological effects such as muscle tremors, balance issues and decrease in respiratory reserve, causing diminished endurance and in increased oxygen demand with previously mild exertion.

There are many symptoms and signs which may occur after COVID 19 infection. Long COVID has been associated with prolonged neurologic and pulmonary conditions. Pulmonary function testing and a chest image may be indicated. Physical therapy and regular visits with your physician are recommended. Please have a COVID 19 booster. Please provide information re how long ago the infection occurred.
