Does Coronavirus (COVID-19) cause shoulder pain?

One of the less common symptoms of COVID-19 are “aches and pains”, but there is no confirmation on whether COVID-19 causes shoulder pain. Since the virus causes blood clots and pulmonary blood clots can cause shoulder pain, some doctors say it’s possible for COVID-19 to cause shoulder pain.

The best way to know whether COVID-19 is the cause is to watch out for other common symptoms, such as fever, dry cough, and tiredness. If the shoulder pain persists, consult your doctor.
