In Japan, the first-ever case of a post-Covid complication has popped up after, a 77-year-old man reported ‘deep and discomfort’ days after recovering from COVID-19. The doctors at the Tokyo University Hospital have confirmed the news, and diagnosed him with ‘restless anal syndrome’.

Reviewing the odd case, the doctors revealed that the symptoms shown by the man were consistent with those shown by patients with restless leg syndrome (RLS). In another test, the doctors found that the man was able to get some relief via exercise, something similar to RLS patients.

The doctors conducted multiple tests on him. According to the test, a few haemorrhoids were detected but, the patient is absolutely fine. No issues such as brain abnormalities, and bladder disturbances were found in the old man. However, restless feelings, anxiety, and insomnia were the only health issues that he faced. The ‘anal discomfort’ was resolved through a course of Clonazepam, a drug used to treat seizures, it further stated.

Previously, the senior citizen was hospitalised with mild Covid-19 that included sore throat, cough, and fever. He was discharged after his respiratory functions improved to normal 21 days after hospitalisation.
