"Long COVID Now Looks like a Neurological Disease"
"Long COVID Now Looks like a Neurological Disease, Helping Doctors to Focus Treatments" reports Stephani Sutherland in Scientific American.
Long COVID is a debilitating syndrome, estimated to affect around 1.4 million adults in Canada, that can arise in people with even mild initial COVID infections. People with long COVID often have difficulty carrying out everyday tasks independently due to dysautonomia causing dizziness, racing heartbeats, and digestive issues, and many more neurological symptoms. Because of the wide range of disabling symptoms coming from long COVID, there are many Canadians who are now out of the workforce and relying on their disability benefits.
Many with long COVID have trouble doing everyday things like going to work or taking care of themselves. But as with other invisible disabilities, insurance companies often question the diagnosis and symptoms of those applying for long term disability benefits for long COVID.
Are you struggling with the symptoms of long COVID? If you've been denied your disability benefits, you don't have to take no for an answer. Share is there.
In this video, President David Share explains why COVID 19 and long COVID should be eligible for long term disability benefits.
