What is restless anal syndrome?

Do you really know?

What is restless anal syndrome? Thanks for asking! 

Although the global vaccination rate reached 40% in mid-October, Covid-19 clearly hasn’t gone away for good just yet. The most common symptoms of coronavirus are mostly well-known, but it keeps surprising us with new repercussions, like restless anal syndrome for example.

On September 23rd, the BMC Infectious Diseases journal reported on the case of a 77-year-old Japanese man suffering from restless anal syndrome several weeks after being discharged from hospital. He’d had no such problems prior to Covid infection, leading researchers to suggest that it could be responsible.  

How did this unpleasant side effect come on? But how on earth did we get from a seasonal virus to a restless anus? Does it have anything to do with restless leg syndrome? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
