Have a Lingering Mysterious Illness? Here’s What You Can Do

COVID-19 has recently shed light on the challenges facing those who continue to live with long-term complications and symptoms of COVID-19, ranging from chronic fatigue and brain fog to headaches and difficulty concentrating.

You may wake up one day and find yourself feeling a heavy weight holding you down or even unable to carry out everyday tasks without a feeling of fatigue. While the pandemic has placed the virus in the spotlight recently, there is a wide range of lingering and often mysterious illnesses that millions must manage each year. In an age of seemingly endless medical advice available at the touch of a finger, it’s frustrating for patients to find no clear answers in response to the symptoms they exhibit.

For example, many patients struggling with “long haul COVID-19” may find themselves grappling with a range of symptoms that seem to worsen each day, but without a clear cause and a clear distinction between physical and mental well-being.

If you have found yourself consulting with doctors to no satisfaction, it may be time to consider adopting a holistic approach to your ambiguous health challenges.

Take careful note of your daily habits and what routines and behaviors may be contributing to a toll on your physical, emotional, and mental health and well-being. You may want to take deliberate records each day on symptoms you’ve experienced, the time that pain begins, and what foods you had been consuming. Putting together such a “symptom journal” is an effective first step in identifying the right approach for your health needs.
