Neurologist: COVID-19 can cause serious ‘brain harm’

A Northern Virginia nervous system specialist says his research has uncovered that COVID-19’s impact on the sensory system can cause mind harm and patients’ drawn out side effects ought to be concentrated all the more intently.

In the event that COVID-19 survivors are hospitalized and are encountering reactions like wooziness, stroke, loss of motion, memory troubles, trouble talking, trouble strolling, or shortcoming, Dr. Majid Fotuhi needs patients to experience a mind MRI before leaving the emergency clinic.

He gauges about 33% of patients that he’s examined have had a scope of neurological symptoms, however not very many have had a MRI.

“Doctors are worried about respiratory issues and people staying alive and so if they have neurological issues they sort of deal with them as secondary problems,” Fotuhi said.

Fotuhi discovered COVID causes mind harm in three phases: first, patients experience issues with just smell and taste (in excess of 80 percent of the time indications resolve inside half a month without intercessions); second, patients have aggravation in the veins that bring about blood clusters (those that create in the cerebrum can cause little or huge strokes); and third, patients have harm to the veins in the brain(veins give oxygen and supplements to the mind) that cause blood and chemicals to leak into the mind, killing synapses and causing seizures, turmoil, or bleeds in the brain. This can prompt memory misfortune, disarray, psychological debilitations, and Alzheimer’s infection later in life.

That is the reason Fotuhi says early intercession is so significant. “We know that, for example, when patients are in neuro-COVID stage two and have strokes, we can treat them with blood thinners and we can provide things for them such as vigorous exercise and brain stimulation to help people improve their brain function.”

“When patients don’t know these things, the symptoms linger. So they struggle and they struggle and they struggle. They may lose their job, but this may also affect their relationship,” Fotuhi said. “So, the husband may think that you don’t love him as much because you don’t do things for him as much as you used to or you may be impatient and argue and your spouse won’t know these are the consequences of COVID-19.”

Fotuhi is the chief of the NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center, which can treat COVID-19 survivors who are confronting neurological reactions. “We do provide treatment for patients who have memory loss due to aging or due to concussion and we have an intensive program that includes brain training [and] an emphasis on diet and exercise,” he said.
