8 Most Common Post-Acute COVID Symptoms Doctors Warn About
You might lose your sense of taste or smell
Another neurological symptom caused by both COVID-19 infection as well as post-acute COVID syndrome is the loss of taste or smell. In medical terms, this is called anosmia and it is considered a more reliable marker than fever or other symptoms when it comes to COVID-19 infection.
An estimated 80 percent of people with COVID-19 have altered smell and taste and for many of them, the symptoms have persisted months after recovering from the initial virus infection. If you want to do a diagnostic test, try smelling these items. If you can’t, you might have COVID-19.
