jpnn.com, JAKARTA – Rheumatologist from India Dr Parikshit Sagdeo said that there were a number of people who recovered from COVID-19, complaining of joint or muscle pain that lasted for more than a month.
According to him, it happens because of changes in the immune system.
“In COVID-19 patients, most drugs to treat rheumatoid arthritis are used, so many people, including clinicians, assume that patients who recover from COVID-19 are safe from arthritis.”
“However, we see a lot of patients starting to develop arthritis during the post-COVID-19 phase,” he said
Dr Parikshit was quoted as saying by the Times of India, Tuesday (3/8).
He said the condition can even occur when there is no infection in the body.
So, the cause is not due to COVID-19 drugs, but changes in the immune system due to the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
If you experience knee or joint pain for more than four weeks after recovery, you should consult a doctor for further treatment.
Consultant rheumatology from India, Dr. Saurabh Chahande said the SARS-CoV-2 virus causes rheumatic disorders in many patients.
