How to treat memory loss from COVID-19

  • Memory and concentration problems are common in long-term COVID patients, with 70% of Long COVID developing memory and concentration problems within months of their initial illness. If you're one of those with long covid brain, you may have trouble concentrating on work, forget where you put your keys, have trouble remembering names of acquaintances, or inadvertently wander off during a conversation.

    How Does Long COVID Affect Memory?

    While it's easy to think of human memory working in the same way as computer storage or a tape recorder that you can play at any time, our memories are far from perfect. People often forget or remember things incorrectly. Other times, information isn't encoded correctly in the first place, or people actively try to forget things they don't want to remember. This memory loss is normal.

    However, memory loss can be a sign of serious illness, including long-term COVID. After acute COVID-19 infection, seven in 10 patients develop cognitive symptoms such as difficulty concentrating, brain fog, and memory loss that persist for several months. Even people who don't really notice signs of cognitive problems develop memory and attention problems after recovering from a mild case of COVID-19, a recent study suggests.

    According to the article How To Get Rid Of Long Covid-19 Brain Fog?, the mainstream pathogenesis of long-term COVID memory loss was analyzed, and the ways of Western medicine to treat memory loss after COVID-19 were summarized. Due to the limitations of Western medicine in treating long-term COVID amnesia, at the same time, LongCovidCare Center also recommends some Chinese medicines, including Chinese herbal formulas and acupuncture treatments, to treat memory-related symptoms in the brain.

    Many clinicians do not have the appropriate information or experience to address the cognitive symptoms of brain fog associated with Long COVID. Please pay attention to the complications of Long COVID-19. LongCovidCareCenter has technology to detect brain dysfunction caused by prolonged COVID. Our therapists and doctors can determine which areas of your brain need help and will create a treatment plan specifically for your symptoms. We also evaluate your autonomic nervous system, vestibular system, visual system, and other areas of health that may be affected by COVID-19.

    What are the manifestations of long-term COVID amnesia?

    A large proportion of post covid brain symptoms are brain-related. In order to facilitate the unified classification and description of brain-related Long Covid symptoms, the medical community uses a folk colloquial term, brain fog. Brain fog wasn't previously a medical or scientific term, but a colloquial description of a state in which people can't think clearly when they have the flu or other illnesses.

    Most people use the fog in the brain to describe the problems that occur in their usual cognition or thinking, such as inattention, memory loss, slow thinking, insensitivity of thinking, lack of creativity, and difficulty in making plans. During recovery from COVID-19, many patients say they experience "brain fog." According to the data given in the research report, about 1% of people infected with the new coronavirus will experience symptoms of brain fog.

    Treatment at the LongCovidCareCenter was initially designed to help post-concussion patients recover from ongoing symptoms. After just one week of treatment, more than 90% of patients showed improvement. So far, LongCovidCareCenter has seen similar results in long-term COVID patients who passed our current screening criteria.
