Many people who get infected with COVID-19 only develop mild symptoms, but now researchers have discovered that even if a person survives their mild symptoms, they can have health problems months later.
The official terminology for this "post-acute COVID syndrome", and according to an article by ABC7, it is especially prevalent in people who are between the ages of 40 and 50 and who have suffered mild COVID-19 symptoms. Doctors are now reporting people within these categories returning back to the doctor's office months later with crippling health problems.
One of these people is Jeff Engman, a 58-year-old who said he was in the "best shape of my life" before COVID-19. Once he caught COVID-19, he experienced fatigue and said, "The fatigue, I was really drained and, you know, could hardly get out of bed". After a few weeks, Engman said that he believed that he recovered from the infection, and now 10 months later, he has found out that "COVID caused some abscesses in my lungs."
