Honestly, I wish they would just call it 'post-viral fatigue syndrome'.
It isn't like it didn't exist before Covid-19 and it would help so that more doctors would start paying attention to all the rest of us who have a similar type of symptom subset.
My greatest fear is that all the money and research are going to just go into Long Covid (or whatever they end up calling it) and that they are going to try to treat it like nothing similar has ever happened before.
Maybe I am just bitter after all these years but it is the vibe I am getting off of Dr. Fauci saying Long Covid is "alarming" and "puzzling" as if it is somehow sitting in a category all on its own with nothing similar to compare it too.
The petty part of me thinks there is this rush to name it so that all the doctor's names can go down in all the medical science textbooks and everyone else who is sick with something with a less 'medically sexy' name will just get left behind.
