Confluence News reporter Chen Junkai/Taipei report

The number of confirmed cases in Taiwan is increasing, and the trouble caused by the “long new crown” syndrome may be greater than the infection! In the outpatient clinic, a female office worker was infected with the virus in May this year. After recovering, she continued to suffer from fatigue, headache and other symptoms. She even rammed her head into a truck while riding a bicycle, and almost lost her life. The doctor thought it might be brain fog. phenomenon harmful. The Taiwan Neurological Society reminds that the COVID-19 syndrome is mostly related to nervous system disorders. If you have symptoms, you should actively seek professional medical assistance.

July 22 is World Brain Health Day. The Taiwan Neurological Society came forward today (22) to call on the public to pay more attention to brain health under the challenges of the epidemic and various diseases, in order to avoid the consequences of systemic disability.

Lu Yunru, a neurologist at the Taipei Branch of the Hospital Affiliated to China Medical University, said that although the woman had mild symptoms when she was diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia, she began to feel tired and headache after recovery, which seriously affected her thinking and speaking ability. Fragmented, unable to think or answer questions correctly, and ended up crashing into a big truck by himself in a moment of confusion while riding.

Lu Yunru pointed out that the woman should be the brain fog phenomenon in the long-term new crown syndrome. Fortunately, with the help of diet adjustment and treatment, the symptoms gradually improved, and life returned to a normal pace.

Hu Chaorong, chairman of the Taiwan Neurological Society, emphasized that the COVID-19 syndrome is closely related to the brain and nervous system, and the brain is very important to the health of the whole body. One person diagnosed has the so-called “long-term new crown” syndrome. Common symptoms include: headache, sore throat, abnormal sense of smell or taste, fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain or chest tightness, joint pain, depression and anxiety.

British research statistics also show that about 63% of patients said that the long-term new crown syndrome has seriously affected the ability of daily life. Among them, chronic fatigue, inability to concentrate, low mood, and sleep disorders are the most likely to affect the work or school performance of patients. .

Hu Chaorong said that the long-term new crown syndrome is mostly related to nervous system disorders. After the new coronary pneumonia virus invades the body, it causes extensive chronic inflammation throughout the body, which may directly or indirectly damage cerebrovascular endothelial cells, resulting in a decrease in blood oxygen concentration in the brain, and neurological symptoms in the brain. The probability of occurrence is related to the patient’s own health and immunity. If the immunity drops sharply due to the infection, it will be more likely to have neurological complications, which will not only lead to neurological symptoms in the brain, but also indirectly affect the whole body.

Taking the phenomenon of brain fog as an example, Cai Ruiping, a neurologist at the Hospital Affiliated to Taipei Medical University, pointed out that, including slow thinking, inability to concentrate, memory loss, and language and communication skills, modern people’s lifestyle changes, such as excessive stress and overuse Electronic products and other reasons are easy to cause inability to concentrate and suddenly the head goes blank, which in turn triggers brain fog. It should be noted that brain fog is not an exclusive symptom of new coronary pneumonia, but one of the early symptoms of many brain-related diseases. If people have the above symptoms, they should actively seek professional medical assistance. If brain fog is allowed to develop, it may indirectly cause anxiety. , depression, dementia, and even Alzheimer’s disease, which in turn damages brain health.
