Post-Viral Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: The Overlap & Implications for Long COVID

Post-Viral Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: The Overlap & Implications for Long COVID
Covid-19, Rare Diseases
Member News

As a second emerging crisis of the pandemic comes to light, 10% of all ‘mildly’ affected patients with COVID-19 have not recovered within 14 months of the initial infection (referred to as Long COVID-19). Many are healthcare providers who are unable to return to work. 

This series of patients are reporting overlapping symptoms with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). Specialist ME physiotherapists and consultants strongly emphasise the need for this patient group to be screened for post-exertional malaise. 

GPs, in particular, have indicated a need for further training in ME. Therefore, our hope is that better education in ME will ensure that all patients with prolonged post-viral symptoms will have the best possible chance for improvement or recovery. 

This one-hour course will provide a reliable and evidenced-based introduction.
