Novel COVID-19 Pain Syndromes – Evidence from Translational Basic and Clinical Research
Attendees will learn about unexpected pain syndromes as a result of COVID-19, especially the many types of neurologic injuries. This translational virtual session will demystify the science behind the pain.
Is the nervous system directly infected? What about persistent immune system dysfunction? Damage to other tissues that might lead to pain, such as myocarditis and new onset insulin-requiring diabetes, will also be explored.
What do we know so far about how COVID-19 affects the nervous system?
Is there more than more molecular ‘gateway’ for SARS-CoV-2 viral entry?
Do patients experience changes in their pain sensitivity during and after COVID-19?
