‘I had no idea that was a symptom

Ellen DeGeneres recently revealed her battle highlighting an unexpected symptom: excruciating back pain. Despite taking precautions, she contracted the v;irus.

She shared her experience, saying, “What they don’t tell you is that you will have severe back pain. I had no notion that was a symptom until I spoke with a few other people.” At the pandemic’s onset, the CDC didn’t list back pain as a symptom, although muscle aches were mentioned.
