Strokes, seizures, memory and movement disorders among problems that develop in first year after infection
If you’ve had COVID-19, it may still be messing with your brain. Those who have been infected with the virus are at increased risk of developing a range of neurological conditions in the first year after the infection, new research shows. Such complications include strokes, cognitive and memory problems, depression, anxiety and migraine headaches, according to a comprehensive analysis of federal health data by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the Veterans Affairs St. Louis Health Care system.

I certainly have noticed more memory issues since COVID! I don’t know if any are reversible or if my brain can re-learn and have strong new pathways. Optimism is still alive and well…thank you, Tony! Your columns brighten my day and my outlook! 🫂🖖👏

Thanks very much for sharing that. I have heard the ‘brain fog’- whatever that is – can result for a bout with COVID, too. Good luck! Remember, no matter what, it is best to keep moving with daily exercise.
