The vagus nerve may be the key to long COVID relief.

The symptoms of long COVID, also called chronic COVID or long-haul COVID, can linger for weeks and months – or longer. Research suggests that the coronavirus itself may have damaged the very part of your nervous system that is responsible for recovery, and damage could be linked to the effects of the coronavirus on a vital nerve, the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve can be disrupted by viral infections, excessive stress, disease, inflammation, and certain medications, among other things. If you’re suffering from long COVID, rehabilitation of this nerve is essential to helping your body function properly.

What is the vagus nerve?

The vagus nerve, also known as cranial nerve ten, runs from the brainstem through the neck and thorax to the abdomen. It’s responsible for controlling heart rate, breathing, speech, swallowing, taste, digestion, mood, immune response, and inflammation response. The vagus nerves are the main nerves of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the “rest-and-digest” system and takes you out of the “fight-or-flight” or stressed state of your body.

At Functional Medicine Center of MN, we have specific tools to measure the health, integrity, and function of the vagus nerve and the ability of the vagus system to work. Dr. Robert DeYoung, DC, QNCP is the only doctor certified in Quantum Neurology in MN, a specific technique that rehabilitates nerves, including the vagus nerve.

Dr. Robert: How long have you had burning in the feet and trouble with that? How many years do you think it’s been?

Marilyn: Oh, I think at least three years, for sure.

Dr. Robert: Three years of burning in the feet. What’s the pattern that would be every day? What would you notice?

Marilyn: Usually, it starts about 6:30 at night, and it would burn sometimes all night. I would have to sleep with a gel pack for my feet.

Dr. Robert: And you wouldn’t sleep well, correct, because of that?

Marilyn: No.

Dr. Robert: And you’d have burning basically every night?

Marilyn: Every night.

Dr. Robert: And the pattern would be–when would it start at night?

Marilyn: About 6:30, when I would sit down and relax, put my feet up, then they would burn.

Dr. Robert: And for about three years, it’s been going on. And now that you’ve been here and worked with me about four times, I believe.

Marilyn: Yes.

Dr. Robert: And what’s the result been?

Marilyn: Oh, it’s wonderful to go to bed without having the burning feet and that acid reflux because when I would turn to my left with the acid, my stomach would just roll.

Dr. Robert: You have had acid reflux for how many years, would you say? Approximately?

Marilyn: I bet you at least 15 years.

Dr. Robert: And now you’re not having it?

Marilyn: Yes.

Dr. Robert: It’s so much better?

Marilyn: Yes.

Dr. Robert: Awesome. If anyone else is having neuropathy, burning in the feet, or even acid reflux and gastrointestinal issues, what would you recommend?

Marilyn: I definitely would recommend you go see Dr. Robert. Wonderful.

Dr. Robert: All right. Well, thank you. Thank you for sharing.
