She is a frontline worker who has been persistently refuting the symptoms of a patient suffering from chronic fatigue, dizziness and headaches following an acute Covid-19 infection five months ago. The refusal to accept her symptoms is despite the literature I had asked this patient, who is a friend and a health professional, to share with her health service provider.
The patient started thinking she was losing her mind and almost believed she was malingering, faking her symptoms. She had returned to work because her follow-up Covid-19 test was negative. She had completed her recommended quarantine period and certified fit to return to work despite the almost incapacitating symptoms.
