Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. COVID would not be able to cause brain damage, the only way it can cause brain damage indirectly is due to those requiring long term ventilation on an Intensive Care Unit.
If you did not require treatment like this then your brain is fine. However there is a common post viral syndrome called Long Covid Syndrome.
This is now quite common but unfortunately there is no treatment other than symptomatic management. So in this case, counselling, and possibly anti depressants.
I would however ask for a blood test to check for deficiencies such as B12, folate and hypothyroidism as these could contribute.
Okay, so I think 3 weeks is a good amount of time, I would therefore review this with your GP to consider an alternative.
