    Hi @toast

    I remember lots of people coming in her complaining of extra pain or new arthritis symptoms/pain after they contracted COVID so I think your question is quite reasonable.

    Quite a lot of discussion can be found here

    but might take some time ploughing through the posts.

    If your arthritis is of the osteoarthritis variety maybe a warm microwaveable wheatbag might help?

    Best of luck and take care

    Hello toast,

    I am the same with body pains after having had Covid over Christmas. I thought that once I started testing negative all would be well but it is very uncomfortable walking and I get tired when I do anything even after all this time. I'm afraid that I can't offer any tips on what else you could take because I take paracetamol and use voltarol. Not used antibiotics.

    I hope you are able to find something that helps you.

    Take care.
