COVID symptoms have changed…again
KSNF/KODE — Due to the fact that new strains of COVID strike at regular intervals, and the symptoms associated with the infection also change over time, it is currently difficult to identify the disease. As the number of cases rises this winter, several studies have identified a new coronavirus symptom that is completely different from the existing ones, such as a runny nose, loss of taste and smell, fever and sore throat, etc.
Loss of smell and taste, high fever and shortness of breath were considered “classic” symptoms when COVID was first detected. But with the advent of Omicron and increased vaccination coverage, the symptoms associated with the infection have changed. Symptoms that have been widely reported include sore throat, runny nose, headache, and fatigue.
Now, it seems that the symptoms associated with COVID have changed again, with many now complaining of acute pain in their shoulders and legs, commonly known as myalgia.
Myalgia is essentially a condition in which the muscles in your body begin to ache. You experience pain in the muscles, especially in the joints. This pain can be excruciating or mild depending on how well your body’s immune system can fight the infection. People often experience myalgia in the shoulders and legs.
This is also known as “COVID-related muscle pain” and it simply attacks your movements and causes discomfort. Myalgia can be accompanied by both long-term and short-term pain. You may not necessarily experience this pain only when you move your body. It can also happen when you are resting.
According to the latest reports from the Zoe Covid Study app, which tracks the main symptoms of COVID, if you have COVID-19, you will have myalgia for at least three to four days, during which time you are advised to get tested for COVID. -nineteen. As with any possible illness, it is always best to consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
