In the year 2020, a pandemic caused by the Coronavirus spread all over the world, leaving no part of it untouched. This was the worst global problem the world had ever seen. In that year, uncertainty and worry became unwanted companions, which forced people to rethink how they lived their lives. In the face of such problems, it became essential to keep a good mood and a positive outlook to protect one’s mental health.
The pandemic caused a lot of big problems, like the quick loss of jobs for a lot of people and the closing of a lot of businesses, which was a big blow to a lot of people. People had to deal with tough financial situations and fought a lost battle to make ends meet in a fast-changing world.
“As the months went by, it became clear that the disease was not going to” let go of its grip. Even though the first attack was over, the virus was still a threat. It was always ready to come back and make people’s lives miserable.
Some people who had been infected with the virus kept having symptoms for a long time. This was one of the things about the pandemic that caused the most worry and raised the most questions. These long-term effects included problems with breathing that made people unable to work and a lot of other health problems that no one had expected. Back pain was one sign that people didn’t notice at first, but it was later found to be a likely side effect of the Coronavirus. This was one of the symptoms that happened at the same time as the silent battles.
During the worst of the current global health disaster, even well-known public figures got sick from the virus. Ellen DeGeneres chose to end her long-running talk show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” after nearly 19 years of making people laugh and giving them something to look forward to. But in the year 2022, she had to make a tough decision: whether or not to end her famous show.
Ellen said, “I’ve really felt like next season was the right time.” This showed that her choice to end the show came from her gut. “I really felt like next season was the right time,” she said. “To be honest, I’ve learned to always go with my gut. I knew from my gut that the time was right.
Even though Ellen took all the proper precautions, she still got the virus. By December of 2020, she was sure that she was “100%” better, and she told everyone. Even so, she would later talk about a discovery she had made about a strange illness that had caught her by surprise.
Ellen was a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” with Billie Joe Armstrong, Jimmie Allen, and Brad Paisley, and she was very upset about her health. She told the truth about it. “I’ve never felt better,” she said. What they don’t tell you is that your back will hurt a lot. Before talking about it with a few other people, I had no idea that was a sign of something.
When the pandemic first started, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did not include back pain on their official list of COVID-19 symptoms. Strangely, the word “muscle or body aches” was on the list, but this kind of pain was not. On the list were also a “fever or chills, a cough, shortness of breath, feeling tired, a headache, a quick loss of taste or smell, a sore throat, congestion or a runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea”. On the list were also things like suddenly losing the ability to taste or smell.
On the other hand, as time went on, more and more people said that being infected with Covid-19 caused them to have serious back and muscle pain. The NHS website said that many Covid patients had aches and pains before they got sick, and that the disease seemed to make these problems worse or bring them back. The website also said that most people who got treatment for the sickness got better.
Ellen DeGeneres was lucky that she was able to beat her illness and feel better in a decent amount of time. Her own experience was a strong reminder that Covid-19 had many different affects and that it often showed symptoms and problems that had not been expected. It showed how important it is to stay aware, keep learning, and help people who are dealing with the sickness and its long-term effects.
In spite of the problems caused by the epidemic, Ellen’s story moved people all over the world. It showed how powerful it is to get through hard times and how important it is to talk about your own experiences in order to build understanding and sympathy.
