Snyder-Cappione was particularly intrigued by long COVID’s overlap with the symptoms reported in a condition called myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), which is marked by profound fatigue, exhaustion, neurologic problems, sleep disturbances, headache, joint pain, shortness of breath, and palpitations. Like long COVID, ME/CFS tends to develop following certain viral and bacterial infections.

Studying those syndromes in parallel may bring insights about shared or similar mechanisms underlying these disorders.
