Problem Sleepiness

When sleepiness interferes with daily routines and activities, or reduces the ability to function, it is called “problem sleepiness.” A person can have problem sleepiness without realizing it. Symptoms of problem sleepiness include: consistently don’t get enough sleep, or poor quality sleep, fall asleep while driving, struggle to stay awake when inactive (like watching TV or reading), have difficulty paying attention or concentrating at work, school, or home, have poor performance problems at work or school, have difficulty remembering things, have slowed responses, have difficulty controlling your emotions, and/or if you have to take naps on most days.

What Causes COVID-19?

 

COVID-19 is transmitted from person-to-person through respiratory droplets from propelled into the air when an infected person sneezes or coughs

Less commonly, COVID-19 may be transmitted when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then touches their mouth, nose, or eyes.

How Is COVID-19 Diagnosed?

 

Doctors will check if patients have any of the hallmark symptoms of COVID-19, and will also ask if the patient had any known recent exposure to the virus. 

If COVID-19 is suspected there are several tests that can be used to diagnose the virus. A long swab is used to take a sample from the nose or throat, which is then sent to a lab for testing to diagnose the illness. Some viral tests are rapid and results are available within a few hours but are less reliable. Other tests may take several days to receive results but the results are more reliable. 

An antibody test is not used to diagnose current infections because it takes up to 3 weeks following infection for the body to produce antibodies to the virus. When a person has antibodies to COVID-19 they may have some protection against re-infection, however, researchers do not yet know how much protection antibodies provide or for how long any protections might last.
