Some COVID-19 long haulers in Minnesota still lack diagnosis
April 5, 2021
Andy Flosdorf never had a positive diagnosis for COVID-19, because tests were tightly rationed by the state when his symptoms started in late March 2020.
But the 51-year-old health care consultant in Minnetonka is still feeling the effects of COVID a year later - fatigue, brain fog, episodic chest pains and headaches. His so-called Long COVID symptoms were recently diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome, another poorly understood disorder.
"There's tired, there's fatigue, there's exhaustion. And then there's something past that, which is where I've been much of the year since," Flosdorf said.
