2. Chest Pain
There are many different conditions that can cause chest pain. However, if you’ve had the virus, this is likely a long COVID symptom. There are different types of chest pain, though.
There’s general chest pain, which is often felt below the left nipple. It can come on quickly and sharply or ache for hours. There’s pain that one can feel in the chest muscles, as if they were sore. The area hurts when you touch it, and the pain tends to get worse when turning around or stretching.
The third type of chest pain is the one you feel when you breathe in (also called pleuritic pain). These are the most common types of chest pain in people with long COVID.
No matter which one you experience, it’s important to seek medical help immediately. Your doctor will do some tests, and they will know whether you need some treatment or not.
