In the debate Lately, there seems to be a sleazy child around Long Covid and related more severe exhaustion syndromes that nobody wants to play with: psychosomatic approaches. If the symptoms, the pain, the severe exhaustion, the shortness of breath are caused by psychosomatic factors, then that would mean as much as: They are “only” psychological, so to speak: “just imagined”. However, the suffering of those affected is in no way taken seriously. Because: They are there, they are real! According to this logic, real suffering can only be those that can be fully traced back to biological factors, a disturbed immune response, a pathologically altered coagulation system or at least to altered genes.
