Directly from the UK: Generalized Joint Hypermobility May Increase Risk for Long COVID

The presence of generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) is associated with not recovering fully from COVID-19, according to a study published online March 19 in BMJ Public Health.

Jessica A. Eccles, M.B.Ch.B., Ph.D., from Brighton and Sussex Medical School in the United Kingdom, and colleagues evaluated whether GJH is a risk factor for self-reported nonrecovery from COVID-19. The analysis included participants in the COVID Symptom Study Biobank who were surveyed in 2022 (3,064 with at least one infection with COVID-19).
