“I spent about fifteen minutes trying, anything and everything, to get up so I could walk.
‘But I had to use my head for that. So now I’m face down on the floor, and to get to the door – and the arms really didn’t work and the legs didn’t work – I used my head to drag me to the door.”
It is believed that Covid induced a situation known as myalgia, which causes muscle aches and pains and may have an effect on ligaments, tendons and fascia – the tender tissues that join muscle mass, bones and organs.
