About this Research Topic
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory tract infection caused by SARS-CoV-2, one of the seven coronaviruses pathogenic to human. While respiratory tract symptoms such as cough and rhinorrhea are common, pain symptoms such as headache, chest pain and myalgia have also been observed in patients with COVID-19. As COVID-19 continues to be a global public health burden, more insights are needed for more effective management of COVID-19-related pain.
The goal of this Research Topic is to bring together a collection of papers that improves the care of COVID-19 patients in pain by providing medical researchers, clinicians, basic scientists, and other health professionals with the latest research of all aspects of pain associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection.
We welcome the submission of manuscripts concerning all aspects of COVID-19 related pain, including, but not limited to,
- Clinical and laboratory findings of pain in individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection
- Epidemiological studies
- Management and prevention of pain
- Research on the nature and mechanism of pain
Original research, systematic and narrative reviews, clinical notes, case reports, and commentaries are considered for publication.
Keywords: COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, pain, neurologic symptoms
