A Northwestern Medicine study published in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology found that 85% of non-hospitalized COVID-19 long-haulers experienced four or more neurologic symptoms, with the most frequent being brain fog.
"Our study is the first to report neurologic findings in non-hospitalized COVID-19 long-haulers, including detailed neurologic exam, diagnostic testing and validated measures of patient quality of life, as well as cognitive function test results," says Igor J. Koralnik, MD, chief of Neuro-infectious Diseases and Global Neurology in the Department of Neurology; director of the Northwestern Medicine Neuro COVID-19 Clinic, part of the Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive COVID-19 Center; and senior author of the study.
