Hello and Welcome !

I have included the usual translator here above. All articles linked to below are in English, as published. 


Various PAIN syndromes

have been studied in those with "long-term" COVID-19. (I've referred to it that way since the beginning, so why should I change its name ?).


To share and save you some time, I have here placed links to articles that I considered worthwhile (based on my own experience and past medical/ scientific work). 

You can be the judge.


Here are the articles, with (hopefully) working links.


Take your time selecting and reading. There(s no hurry from my end in what I have placed below.


I too am still re-reading and reviewing these works, so have not appended any annotated comments. When I come back from time to time, I'll place an asterisk or something next to any personal favorites. If in my careful reading I decide that one is poorly done, I'll note that too. Maybe even make it disappear if it really gets on my nerves.


Do I think that this subject has anything to do with the primary goal and subject matter of this site ? Of course I do.


I have placed the one that I most appreciate so far, first. But for now, they are here in he order that I found and downloaded them for myself.


I have set these to each open on a new page, so depending on your time spent reading, you may wind up with some tabs to close.


Here goes ...

There's your little reading list for now. If I find more that need to be here, I'll place them here in the future.


If you'd like a more online format, try this: 

"Why Does COVID-19 Cause Back Pain?"


And I quote from the above ...


"Back pain is now one of the key symptoms of Omicron, one of the main SARS-CoV-2 variants circulating. Data from South Africa where the variant was first identified suggested that people who get Omicron often develop two sets of symptoms – a sore throat, nasal congestion, and a cough – and also muscle pain, especially low back pain. This back pain has been described by some as intense period cramps, kidney stones or muscle spasms."


Of course, you might decide to start with Silas Mitchel Weir's classic, written in 1872, but unlike those provided above, it's a book of 377 pages.

"Injuries of Nerves: And Their Consequences"

You can even find it on I bought it for $13.98, in an abridged version.

It's even on Kindle at an "old books don't sell" price of $3.79.

He was quite a 'father of Medicine' and Neurology too during the US Civil war.




When new things appear in Medicine, never dismiss the workers of the past.

Or as Shakespeare wrote it better (In the Tempest): "What Is Past Is Prologue."


"Silas Weir Mitchell (1829-1914) was an American physician and writer. He studied at the University of Pennsylvania, and received the degree of M. D. at Jefferson Medical College in 1850. His medical texts include Injuries of Nerves and Their Consequences (1872) and Fat and Blood (1877). In 1863 he wrote a clever short story, combining physiological and psychological problems, entitled The Case of George Dedlow, in the Atlantic Monthly Magazine. Thenceforward Dr Weir Mitchell, as a writer, divided his attention between professional and literary pursuits. His historical novels, Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker (1897), The Adventures of François (1898) and The Red City (1909), take high rank in this branch of fiction. He was also Charlotte Perkins Gilman's doctor and his use of a rest cure on her provided the idea for The Yellow Wallpaper, a short story in which the narrator is driven insane by her rest cure."


Anybody reading this ever thought that they were being driven insane by their 'rest cure' ?


Silas Weir Mitchell


Wish I had Silas's suit and coat.



Look around this site a bit if you want to get a bigger (or at least a different) picture.




And all the best to you for a good health.


Good reading !
