Tinnitus and Biopsychosocial Ramifications of COVID-19 Associated With Severe Suicide Attempt-A Case Report
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
The COVID-19 disease has been linked to multiple physical and mental health consequences which may be partially attributed to multi-system modulation by inflammatory cytokines. Post-acute sequelae (PASC) of SARS-CoV-2 infection, colloquially known as "Long Covid", has become an established entity. However, screening guidelines and interventions for COVID-19 survivors remain elusive. The neuropsychiatric sequelae of COVID-19 seem to originate from a cumulation of biopsychosocial factors which may predispose individuals to acute psychiatric decompensation irrespective of a previously diagnosed mental illness. We present a case report which illustrates how cognitive issues and medical complaints may negatively interact resulting in significant depression and a severe suicide attempt.
