When is joint pain a symptom of Covid-19?

Bağrı Açık gave important information about joint pain, which is one of the most common problems in the pandemic, sometimes caused by Covid-19. In the PANDEMIC process, especially sedentary life, postponing health checks for fear of catching a virus, and increased stress also hit the joints. In his book 'Doctor I Have Pain', Orthopedics and Traumatology Specialist Op. Dr. Adnan Bağrıçak explained when these pains could be a sign of Covid-19: Orthopedics and Traumatology Specialist Op. Dr. Adnan Bagriaccik


  • Bone, cartilage tissue, ligaments, pillows we call bursa, menisci, tendons, vessels, nerves, skin, and muscle tissue may be affected due to sprains, injuries, strains, and impacts.
  • Overload swearing or vice versa, calcifications (arthrosis) caused by excessive inactivity and old age. In this case, the joint fluid decreases, the cartilage tissue loses its former strength. 
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and joint inflammation (arthritis). Less frequent causes of joint pain can be listed as follows: Tendon problems, gout, purulent joint infection, posture-posture disorders, bony deformities, shortness-length differences, fracture-dislocations. fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, osteomyelitis (bone infection), osteoporosis (bone loss), tumors, cancers, some autoimmune diseases (Behçet, psoriasis, lupus, etc.), diabetes, thyroid disorders, sickle cell anemia, obesity, cold weather, chronic alcoholism, certain medications such as cortisone, and psychosomatic problems.


  •  If there is severe pain, deformity, inability to load the joint, abnormal movement following the trauma or accident. 
  • If there is swelling, pain, inability to move, redness, warmth in the joint with fever 
  • If children have joint pain 
  • Sudden weight loss, if there is a palpable mass 
  • If your pain lasts longer than 3-5 days, a doctor should be consulted immediately.


If you are a desk worker, get up and walk around frequently and do simple exercises in a chair. Correct techniques and arrangements in housework can protect you from joint pain. After extreme fatigue, take time to rest and get enough sleep. Take time to sunbathe for 20 minutes a day. Manage your stress, endorphins are natural pain relievers. Your room should be bright, spacious and often ventilated.


If new onset joint pain (maybe in the back or waist) is accompanied by symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, taste-smell disorder, high fever, Covid-19 infection should be considered. However, the increase in obesity due to inactivity due to the pandemic, and the disruption of routine check-ups and visits to the doctor, unfortunately, resulted in a rapid deterioration in the conditions of calcification and osteoporosis patients. After a long time, almost all of the patients I have seen have either increased calcification or osteoporosis has developed and progressed.
