Having a difficulty concentrating and remembering details is a common complaint of those who have had COVID-19 and didn’t realise.
Labour’s Andrew Gwynne said that his memory was “shot to pieces”.
The MP explained he began to feel “grotty and run down” in March, went on to display COVID-19 symptoms, and his initial illness lasted for about 12 days although he still feels the effects today.
The MP for Denton and Reddish told the Commons: “My condition is not as severe as it was even just a few months back, there have been real improvements, but it’s been a hard slog to get here.
“For the first seven months or so the exhaustion came back frequently and to the point where doing just simple tasks around the house brought me out in massive sweats like I’d run the London Marathon.
“I had lots of dizzy spells, I’ve never had vertigo before this, and oh the brain fog – in a job where you have to be razor sharp, my short-term memory is shot to pieces.
“I’ve had to learn to pace myself, trying to push my limits would set me back.”
