Ellen DeGeneres Reveals ‘Excruciating’ Symptom She Experienced After COVID-19 Diagnosis
Ellen DeGeneres revealed an unusual, painful symptom she's been experiencing after testing positive for COVID-19.
On Wednesday (December 16), the daytime talk show host updated fans about her health via a video on social media.
"Hi everybody, just saying thank you to all the well wishes out there," she said. "I appreciate it very much. I'm feeling 100%, I feel really good."
Although she said she currently feels good, she also shared the one surprising symptom she experienced after testing positive: "One thing that they don't tell you is you get, somehow, excruciating back pain. Didn't know that was a symptom, but I talked to some other people — back pain. Who knew? How come? Bad."
Closing the clip, DeGeneres resumed playing Connect Four at home with her wife, Portia de Rossi.
