Post-Covid Burning Pain

Persistent burning pain after Covid recovery is common in Covid many long-haulers. A woman was admitted to a hospital complaining of severe back pain with a burning sensation. This burning sensation was enhanced by light, touch, and heat.

Some other survivors are complaining about this -

  • Swollen feet making walking or moving around difficult.

  • Burning scalp

  • Hair is falling out.

  • Burning sensations in their feet.

  • Scalp skin shedding.

  • Tenderness in the scalp

People have been seeking support from doctors regarding these unique symptoms since last year. Due to Covid being a new disease, doctors can only offer symptom management and not a cure.

These burning sensations that are affecting many long haulers are signs of neurological damage. Your nerves are being affected and they feel as if they are on fire. This is called ‘dysesthesia’.

Due to the neurological damage caused by Covid-19, it's not surprising that people are and will continue to experience such weird sensations. The only saving grace is that this burning pain does not indicate tissue damage.


Treatment for Burning Pain in Scalp

The best course of action to manage this sensation is to make sure that the pain receptors in your brain are not firing excessively.

The best type of medications to change how your nervous system processes pain -

  • antiseizure drugs

  • antidepressants

  • certain cannabinoids

  • some benzodiazepines

  • oral pain relievers or anti-inflammatories

  • hydrocortisone creams or ointments

  • surgical cutting of the damaged nerves, in severe cases
