A new federally funded study of nearly 10,000 Americans has revealed a new list of the top 12 most common symptoms associated with long COVID.
The study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, includes analysis of more than 9,700 participants and provides some clarity about the combination of symptoms often associated with long COVID. The study is part of the National Institutes of Health’s Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery (RECOVER) initiative to better understand, detect, and treat the condition.
Researchers assessed symptoms among thousands of people who had COVID-19 and applied a statistical analysis to identify a core set of symptoms for long COVID.
“One of the big takeaways from this study is the heterogeneity of long COVID,” said Andrea Foulkes, the senior study author and a principal investigator of the RECOVER Data Resource Core. “Long COVID is not just one syndrome; it’s a syndrome of syndromes."
