Breakthrough Research Finds Link Between 'Long COVID' And Vagus Nerve Damage

re: Long-Haul COVID
re: vagus nerve

Research is catching up to what I was sure of way back in July 2020—it dovetailed with all sorts of symptoms. This is what I wrote back in late 2020:

It is my hypothesis that CVS is actually a vagus nerve nerve issue, possibly involving the brain stem and brain itself. This would explain all sorts of strange apparently unrelated symptoms. This hypothesis is not about saying that other body areas are without additional issues, but that numerous physiological systems throughout the body cannot restore themselves to homeostasis because the “boss” (vagus nerve and brain) are all out of kilter.

I thought acupuncture was benefitting me, but after several thousand dollars (not covered by insurance), I had to give it up.

Breakthrough Research Finds Link Between 'Long COVID' And Vagus Nerve Damage

2022-02-15. Emphasis added.

New research out of Israel has just confirmed that the puzzling long-COVID phenomenon, which has caused so much fuss around the world, might be caused by damage to one of the most influential nerves in the human body.

For those among us who aren't familiar with the vagus nerve, it's the 10th cranial nerve, and the longest and most complex in that category. Still, repairing nerve damage will be essential since the nerve exerts control over the gastrointestinal tract, along with the face and chest.

...The study suggests that vagus nerve damage caused by SARS-CoV-2 dysfunction could be responsible for many of the symptoms of long COVID, including persistent voice problems, difficulty swallowing, dizziness, abnormally fast heart rate - aka tachycardia - low blood pressure and digestive issues.


WIND: I have no doubt whatsoever that the vagus nerve is the source of many, but not all problems. Other damage also can accrue.
