The growing recognition of serious neurological damage happening to people who were infected with COVID 19 is now growing and scientific findings are struggling to answer the question as to its viral or inflammatory cause. Treatment choices will turn on the underlying causative factors but the need for a quick and safe treatment is considerable now. I can speak from my personal experience with having had CV19 starting in late March and being tested as free of virus in late April about the impact this illness can have on neurological functioning. I had several spike of fever to above 103F and severe chills and productive cough and fatigue. I thought originally I had pneumonia until the test proved it was CV19. My neurological symptoms included ataxia, impaired cognition and was occasionally unable to organize my communication adequately, particularly with word finding and auditory processing.
I was fortunately had the Cognitolite 1068nm pulsed (10hz) transcranial infrared unit at home and used it 2-4x daily for well over a month and then tapered to 3-5x/week now. I also was taking 2G VitC q2hr and tapering by half when my urine turned bright yellow. I never had GI distress during this period of high dosing nor afterward. I also was taking 5-10K D3 and Zinc daily and flushing my system with filtered water and electrolytes.
It would seem likely that my symptom severity was decreased by this regime and it would now seem reasonable from further investigation that the use of transcranial photobiomodulation could be used as an initial intervention with minimal side effect potential while patients are evaluated for viral or parasitic and other neuroinflammatory markers that would indicate the need for antiviral or anti-inflammatory treatment.
