Trigger warning: Long COVID. Zebras, I’ve been reading a lot on chronic illness Twitter about how EDS seems to be an elevated risk factor for developing long COVID (see links below). I haven’t been infected yet with COVID (knock wood!!), but this information is very triggering for my anxiety. I’m wondering if other folks have heard about or experienced this linkage? I will say that a friend of mine from grad school has long COVID and now is completely disabled with various neurological and ME/CFS symptoms. She was recently diagnosed with CCI and tethered cord. Thanks for your thoughts! Twitter links:
