Epub 2021 Dec 13.ABSTRACTA significant number of patients infected with the new coronavirus suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome after COVID-19, and their symptoms may persist for months after the infection. Nevertheless, no particular treatment for post-disease fatigue has been found. At the same time, many clinical trials have shown the effectiveness of l-carnitine in relieving fatigue caused by the treatment of diseases such as cancer, MS, and many other diseases. Therefore, it can be considered as a potential option to eliminate the effects of fa...

Vaccines significantly reduce the risk of developing COVID-19, but scientists are now asking what effect the vaccines might have on long COVID. Long COVID is a somewhat ill-defined, but common, syndrome that can arise from even mild cases of COVID19 - with symptoms ranging from chronic fatigue to breathing difficulties and even neurological deficiency. But little is known about what triggers long COVID, or how to prevent it. As public health experts consider protection measures, the role of vaccines in protecting against long COVID is poorly understood, and although numerous studies are seeking answers, they are turning up...

Introduction: Following Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), patients (pat.) often present with ongoing symptoms like chronic fatigue and persistent subjective deterioration of exercise capacity (EC) after viral elimination.Objectives: We performed sequential cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) to objectify the reduced EC after COVID-19 and evaluate for pathologic limitations.Methods: At first presentation after COVID-19, 30 pat. with subjective limitation of EC performed CPET at our outpatient clinic. If objectively limited, we offered follow-up CPET. 16 pat. agreed to perform follow-up CPET.Results: We included 18 m...

Conclusions Young people with CFS/ME can benefit from better educational adaptations and increased social interaction with peers. From the participants’ view, factors that limit learning and socialisation include a lack of knowledge about CFS/ME among teachers and school personnel, expectations from teachers of doing more than they could manage at school, feeling alone coping with the disease and not recognising their own limitations regarding what they are able to do. Suggested factors perceived to enhance learning and socialisation were a better understanding of the disease among school personnel and peers, suitabl...
