Researchers discover underlying cause of brain fog linked with long COVID.

Study Title:

Blood–brain barrier disruption and sustained systemic inflammation in individuals with long COVID-associated cognitive impairment (Nature Neuroscience)​


MedicalExpress.com:
"The findings reported by the Trinity team have shown that there was disruption to the integrity of the blood vessels in the brains of patients suffering from long COVID and brain fog. This blood vessel "leakiness" was able to objectively distinguish those patients with brain fog and cognitive decline compared to patients suffering from long COVID but not with brain fog."

Here's the link to the article about the study: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2024-02-underlying-brain-fog-linked-covid.html

Hope this helps us!
I have a leaky brain vascular system! Yikes!
