Carpal tunnel like symptoms post COVID

Posted by debbterr @debbterr, Jan 2 3:25pm

I came down with COVID in October 2021. During my 3 week illness, I experienced tingling in both hands foe about 2 weeks. It eventually went away, but 2 weeks ago I started experiencing carpal tunnel like pain in both wrists. Wondering if it could be related to COVID. Anyone else experience anything similar?

This is a newer symptom for me. I got sick with covid January 2021. Over the past few months I started having tingling in my toes and fingers, that turned into arthritis like pain in my hands, wrists, elbows, feet, ankles.
I'm going for an EMG today.

I also have tingling & numbness in my hands fingers abdomen, after Covid in Jan 2021. After going to numerous drs & test was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, however no one seemed to be bothered with the tingling or numbness. I finally have a neurologist appt scheduled for May of 2022.
