Ellen DeGeneres recently came out with the news that she tested positive for COVID-19 and is now speaking out about the symptoms she’s been experiencing. She shared a video recently, letting her fans know that she’s feeling “100 percent” despite learning that “excruciating back pain” and she’s been dealing with a whole lot of that.
“Hi everybody, just saying thank you to all the well wishes out there. I appreciate it very much,” DeGeneres says in the video. “I am feeling 100 percent. I feel really good. One thing they don’t tell you is you get, somehow, excruciating back pain,” she continued. She added she did not know it was a symptom of the virus. “Who knew? How come? Back pain. Bad.”
