‘Blue legs’ and long COVID

Blue legs may be the latest in long COVID symptoms. A recent case report featured a 33-year-old man with long COVID whose legs turned blue after 10 minutes of standing. This previously healthy man was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) at the same time as long COVID.
