Is earache a new symptom of COVID-19?


A new symptom, known as COVID-19, has been discovered in certain individuals, according to physicians.

The earache has become increasingly common in those who are confirmed to have the coronavirus, according to specialists. A painful earache, a sensation of obstruction, and a temporary loss of hearing are among symptoms that may occur as a result of earaches.

Doctors note that symptoms are shifting in response to the emergence of new COVID variations.

While being interviewed by Zoom, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel recently revealed that an earache was one of his symptoms.

“When I woke up this morning, I had a sore throat and some ear pain, so I went to be tested,” he said on Sunday.

The news broke only 24 hours after the squad was in Tampa for a Buccaneers preseason game.

The most common COVID-19 symptoms, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, include fever or chills, cough, shortness of respiration or difficulty breathing, tiredness, muscle or corporeal wear, headache, loss of smell, sore throat, congestion, or runny nose; nausea or vomiting; and diarrhea.

However, the CDC warns that this list doesn't include all potential symptoms.

Dr. Nicole Frommann, the medical director at Tampa General Hospital, told WFLA that it is rare for a person to have an earache without other symptoms being present.

According to her, the reason for a rise in earaches is due to sore throat's increased prevalence, which is the origin of earaches. “We have earaches from time to time, although earaches are typically only present with other symptoms, such as a sore throat.”

Prevention magazine said that CVID-19 has been connected to tinnitus, a condition characterized by ringing, roaring, clicking, or buzzing in the ears.

The number of COVID-19 cases is increasing as viral variations and associated symptoms emerge. The new case rate of 150,000 per day in the U.S. is at its highest since late January and is due to the more prevalent delta variety. Despite a national slowdown, the pace of growth has picked up in areas of the country where the virus has been a major problem in the past.

Patients with COVID are coming to our facility in droves, and we're overrun with them. Frommann said that "it's worse than last year."

In addition to those comparable symptoms, the CDC warns that some variations, such as the alpha and delta types, are more likely to cause severe illness and fatalities.

Frommann warns that the epidemic will not likely diminish in intensity. People should use gloves, minimize contact with other people, wash their hands often, and get vaccinated to prevent the illness, says the CDC.
