Acupuncture for Long COVID:



Many patients, estimated up to 10%, have prolonged, multi-system symptoms without any sign of organ damage or malfunction. These patients often experience severe exhaustion, headaches, polymyalgias, mood and cognitive disturbances but show normal laboratory findings. They are experiencing symptoms most similar to post-viral fatigue syndrome, or chronic fatigue syndrome sometimes called myalgic encephalomyelitis, as well as fibromyalgia and other related, poorly understood disorders associated with chronic fatigue and pain. In all these conditions, there is no evidence of organ damage or persistent and significant immune/inflammatory abnormalities.
Post covid symptoms have similarities with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, two conditions known to respond well to acupuncture.
And finally, it is important to mention that that acupuncture is a safe treatment without side effects.
