Face Blindness & Long COVID: Prosopagnosia Is a New Symptom of Long COVID
What could be more terrifying than to not “know” a face that’s been familiar to you in the past? "Brain fog” is one of the signatures of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and now, long COVID. However, “face blindness” in long COVID presents a new twist. The good news is that usually both the pain and the “brain inflammation” of microglial activation can be turned off. This is the mechanism by which the compounded prescription treatment called Low Dose Naltrexone is likely to work. Fortunately, the brain fog in long COVID and CFS/fibromyalgia are very treatable, as is the pain and fatigue. But it is best to begin treatments now, rather than leaving people disabled, in pain and at-risk for future worsened cognitive dysfunction.
