HealthDay Reports: COVID-19 Can Start With Neurological Symptoms
Researchers found that neurological symptoms can appear before the more commonly known symptoms of COVID-19 infection like fever and cough.
MONDAY, June 15, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- While a fever and cough have seemed to be the early warning signs of COVID-19, new research shows almost half of hospitalized patients experience a host of neurological problems.
In fact, headaches, dizziness, strokes, weakness, decreased alertness or other neurological symptoms can appear before the more commonly known symptoms of infection with the new coronavirus (known as SARS-COV-2), the researchers said.
Those neurological symptoms can also include loss of smell and taste, seizures, muscle pain and difficulty concentrating.
