About Covid:

This forum has seen an increasing number of people over the last four years who have arrived here with twitching, sensory, brain fog/fatigue and other symptoms after experiencing a possible COVID infection. There also seems to be a fair number of people who've reported twitching after getting a COVID vaccine.

There is no research supporting any link between getting the COVID vaccine and ALS/MND

However, there is a growing body of research showing that COVID can cause many different symptoms, neurological and otherwise- sometimes many months past acute infection. People are reporting some profoundly life affecting issues even if their initial infection was mild, or they experienced no symptoms at all but tested positive. Updated to add, covid tests do not always pick up current variants and there is a growing body of evidence that many people have had covid, despite not testing positive with rapid testing.

The most up to date research shows that the SARSCov2 causes brain inflammation, injury and structural changes:

SARS-CoV-2 Can Infect Dopamine Neurons

Ongoing brain injury caused by COVID-19 may not always be detected by routine tests

COVID-19 results in acute elevation of serum markers of brain injury

A good article discussing the most recent discoveries and theories about post-Covid issues:

Long Covid Now Looks Like A Neurological Disease

Evidence that SarsCoV2 infection alters muscle structure and function, causing muscle fatigue and reduced capacity:

Muscle abnormalities worsen after post-exertional malaise in long COVID
