Apparently I've read through medical online case studies that covid 19 can cause Ataxia, movement disorders, and Epilepsy after infection .I wanted to add links here but it wouldn't work I find this an interesting thing to know about as I'm wondering could covid 19 infection be the reason for my symptoms the variables in diagnosis are a lot but still it's a possibility.
