Is gut pain a symptom of long-COVID-19?
Long-COVID-19 (also known as post-acute COVID-19) is a condition that may cause certain patients to continue developing symptoms even after recovering from an initial, acute bout of the virus.
Along with other long-COVID-19 symptoms, like breathlessness, joint pains and a loss of taste or smell, gut pain has been reported across certain individuals.
Pain in the gut may be accompanied by other symptoms like diarrhoea, vomiting and intestinal bleeding.
Why should you visit a gut clinic?
While COVID-19 primarily affects the respiratory system, it has the potential to damage your gastrointestinal system. This may lead to former COVID-19 patients developing serious gastrointestinal conditions later on in life.
If you are experiencing gut pain following your recovery, speak to a specialist for treatment and relief.
