Combating the consequences of COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus infection SARS-CoV-2, is a serious and very urgent task facing modern medicine. COVID-19 often has a severe course and is accompanied by multiple organ damage, systemic immune inflammation, coagulopathy, neuroendocrine and metabolic disorders. Even with a relatively favorable course, the consequences of SARS-CoV-2 infection can be degenerative changes in many organs (pulmonary fibrosis, cardiosclerosis), various…

Post-COVID pain syndrome: a review of international observations
Data from a meta-analysis that included 47,910 patients with long-COVID and with a protracted course of COVID indicate that 19% of them had pain in the joints of various localization, which significantly hampered recovery.
Effect of COVID-19 coronavirus infection on the course of rheumatoid arthritis
The effect of coronavirus infection on the course of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the severity of infection, the effect of current baseline therapy on infection outcomes, and the role of vaccination against COVID-19 were assessed.

Pain Symptoms in Patients with Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19): A Literature Review
Different pain reflects the damage of different body systems and can help doctors improve the accuracy and efficiency of diagnosis when treating COVID-19 patients with atypical or mild symptoms and adopt more targeted treatment methods.
Post-acute COVID-19 syndrome.
A comprehensive review of the current literature on post-acute COVID-19, its pathophysiology and its organ-specific sequelae is provided and a framework for the identification of those at high risk for post-ACute CO VID-19 and their coordinated management through dedicated COVID -19 clinics is proposed.
Post-COVID-19 arthritis: a case report and literature review
A case of acute oligoarthritis occurring 13 days after a SARS-CoV2 severe pneumonia in a middle-aged Caucasian man is described and it is hypothesized that molecular mimicry might be the basic immunological mechanism responsible for the onset of COVID-19-related arthritis.
Post COVID Inflammation Syndrome: Different Manifestations Caused by the Virus.
As the number of cases of COVID-19 cases has been increasing globally, it is advisable that physicians consider the possibility of post-COVID manifestations while examining patients with non-specific inflammation, and in rare cases with organ threatening inflammation, steroids may be required.
Autonomic dysfunction in 'long COVID': rationale, physiology and management strategies.
It is suggested that all physicians should be equipped to recognise and appreciate the symptom burden and provide supportive management of individuals with symptoms of 'long COVID', and that this condition may be related to a virus- or immune-mediated disruption of the autonomic nervous system resulting in orthostatic intolerance syndromes.
