Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Post COVID

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fybromyalgia, both have similar symptoms and may become present after a post-viral condition such as COVID-19. Both conditions are often misdiagnosed due to their sometimes overlap in symptoms or having both simultaneously.

Individuals with CFS experience debilitating fatigue that never seems to go away. While FMS can cause widespread body pain, stiffness, brain fog, restless sleep, and depression. Other symptoms include muscle aches, bloating, brain fog, and low libido.

Patients who experience CMS and FMS symptoms after a COVID infection are identified as long haulers or post-COVID.

Why do COVID-19 Patients Develop Chronic Fatigue?

After your body experiences a viral condition, pro-inflammatory cytokines enter the hypothalamus by crossing the blood-brain barrier and cause CMS or FMS. Other studies indicate that your immune system releases too many cytokines or a cytokine storm to fight COVID but instead causes lung inflammation.

Additional research suggests that mitochondrial (cellular energy) functioning, lymphatic system disturbances, and blood clots in the lung may be contributing factors of fatigue, all triggered by COVID-19.

What are Symptoms of Post-COVID?

It can be scary to experience lingering symptoms without answers or treatment options. At Manhattan Integrative Medicine, we address your symptoms by uncovering the root cause so we can work to eliminate them.

If you have post-COVID, you may be experiencing FMS or CMS symptoms in addition to any of the following symptoms two weeks to two months after your initial COVID diagnosis.

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Joint pain
  • Brain fog
  • Exhaustion (from mundane tasks like checking the mail)
  • Breathing issues

While symptoms do seem to eventually improve over time, they may last longer in patients with chronic health issues and those of older age. Call today to be seen at a top post COVID clinic in Boca Raton to get on top of your symptoms. Call (754) 247-0122 or contact us online to book your first appointment!

Treating Post-COVID Patients

Dr. Borenstein provides patients struggling with FMS or CMS symptoms after COVID-19 with leading treatment options in functional medicine. After deep diving into your health history and utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostics, Dr. Borenstein will recommend the following protocols.

Addressing Sleep Disturbances

Sleep is vital for healing, especially for patients with CFS. As a part of the SHINE protocol, which includes addressing sleep, hormones, infection control, nutrition, and exercise, Dr. Borenstein will work to restore your sleep for optimal healing.

Adrenals and Hormonal Support

Many SARS patients develop adrenal insufficiency that leads to extreme fatigue. Testing your adrenals for cortisol deficiency is a critical step of the SHINE protocol. Your testing may include a saliva, urine, or blood test.

Vitamins for Post-COVID

Nutritional and supplemental therapy will be an essential component of your recovery. Dr. Borenstein will provide beneficial supplements to address specific symptoms, including melatonin for sleep, creatine for energy, and lysine for pain relief.

IV Vitamin C

Patients who experienced respiratory failure from COVID-19 might have been due to intracellular oxidative stress. IV Vitamin C has been shown to raise intracellular levels reducing the lungs' over-reactive inflammatory response and decreasing oxidative stress.

Inhaled Glutathione

Inhaling glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, positively affects your immune system, including reducing oxidative stress and lowering oxidative injury.

Stem Cells

Studies indicate that mesenchymal stem cells may help reduce the need for a ventilator for patients struggling with respiratory issues from COVID-19. If you have an overactive immune system, stem cells may improve your pulmonary function.
