Symptoms Of Long-COVID - Back Pain Could Be A Warning Sign Of Post-Coronavirus Recovery

Symptoms Of Long-COVID – Back Pain Could Be One to look out for!

Long-COVID is described as signs and symptoms that last for a few weeks or months after having a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.

Are you someone who has been experiencing chronic back pain since the time you have recovered from the COVID-19 infection? This is not normal, and it can actually be a warning sign that you are being haunted by long-COVID. The spread of COVID which started in late 2019 continues to challenge the daily normal lives of the people, and it is not only in India but across the globe. When things start looking better and normal, then suddenly a new variant of Covid-19 emerges and thus brings back the whole traumatic phase of managing the situation.

The infection not only makes you suffer during the course of recovery but also post that. Yes, many recovered COVID patients have said that they were left with back-breaking pain after recovering from a coronavirus infection. Do you think it is a side-effect of the deadly infection? Not, really. Post-COVID back pain could be a warning symptom that you are suffering from long-COVID symptoms. But, to understand it better let us first see what exactly causes this post-recovery pain?

It’s a very much known fact that myalgias post-recovery are commonly seen in viral infections. Covid is not an exception but there is a sudden spike in the number of cases where patients are complaining about back pain ever after 5-6 months post-COVID recovery. The reason why this is happening is that the Omicron variant (currently dominant) leads to inflammations which in turn causes more myalgia than any other variant post-recovery. Another reason for this can be the fact that this variant is affecting the musculoskeletal system more than any other variant before.

Symptoms Of Long-COVID

Once you are infected with the deadly COVID-19 virus, it becomes very difficult for your body to recover completely and get back to your previous self. It is not impossible, but the journey can be tough, tiring, and may require more effort than you could have thought. Experts over the last two years (since the time COVID started haunting us), have stated that there is a sudden rise in reports of some symptoms which COVID-recovered patients have complained about even after 5-6 months. These are termed long-COVID symptoms. To understand it better, long-COVID is described as signs and symptoms that last for a few weeks or months after having a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19. Here are some of the signs that could tell you if you are also one of the long-haulers of COVID-19 infection. Check them out!

  3. Cough
  4. Sore throat
  5. Difficulty in breathing
  6. Back pain

So, if you are also someone who is been experiencing any of the above-mentioned symptoms even after recovering from COVID-19, you need to know that you have long-COVID and thus you need to take more care of yourself. Experts suggest proper diet, good sleep, daily exercising (moderate to medium), etc can reduce your chances of suffering from the long-COVID symptoms and make it less complicated for you to deal with post-COVID health issues.
