Long covid has pushed brain fog into the spotlight
Jacqueline Becker, PhD, discusses the stigma of brain fog, a condition that affects people with long COVID. She said, “The stigma prevents people from getting adequate care where physicians tend to write them off and say, ‘No, you’re young. Don’t worry about it. You’ll get better.’ Or, ‘Look, your brain scan came back as normal. There’s nothing wrong with you.’ And on the other side of that, you have a patient who is really struggling to function.
