Covid affects connective tissue resulting in anatomical issues which are hard to treat. The best of non-surgical modalities - conventional & alternative - will not fix worsening scoliosis, CCI, Chiari, dural leak, etc. Early rehab , control of inflammatory response are key.

This is one of the most important things I hope medicine and research come to understand about COVID, Long Covid, #MECFS , and other infection-associated illnesses. We need more research on mechanisms of CT damage & CTDs, & treatment options asap.

Also with the idea of how important preventing infection is critical to preventing loss of function! Especially for viruses (and other pathogens) that we have allowed to become endemic like HSV, EBV, Covid, influenza, and so many more!

I was diagnosed with Chiari malformation (most likely acquired) a year after my initial Covid infection.
Many people with #LongCovid are now being investigated for acquired Chiari - this is not a random case!

Can Covid make chiari worse?

What methods are you using to control inflammatory response, particularly with neuroinflammation?

Interested in this as well.

I had a bad reaction to the second Phizer vaccination and now I am recovering from Covid. My connective tissue problems are much worse ever since vaccination!! 1993 Hep B and flu vaccinations together crashed my immune system for life!! Cannot get appointments!!

Are there any publications that explain this? EDS organizations say EDS patients are not at higher risk, but based on experience, I don’t believe that to be accurate.

I’m concerned about this as well. Have been trying to find legitimate research on the topic, but I don’t know if it exists yet.
