Is getting back pain the symptoms of COVID-19?
Hello, I am 18 years old female. Everyone in my house tested positive for covid-19 except me. I didn’t develop any symptoms and tested negative. Now even my family members tested negative. I am having back pain for the last two days and it is not PMS. I am worried. Can anyone tell me is it a symptom of COVID-19?
@drisana Hello, yes back and muscular pain is the most common symptom of COVID-19. Back pain often appears in the early stages of the disease, but it can also be a long-haul symptom that persists for weeks or months after infection. General body aches, muscle pain, or joint pain are common symptoms of COVID-19 and other viral infections. It’s thought that pain is primarily caused by your body’s immune response. Having back pain alone isn’t necessarily a symptom of COVID-19. Other viral infections like the flu can also cause body aches. The only way to know for sure if your pain is a symptom of COVID-19 is to receive a positive diagnostic test.
