Pain from laying: Covid causes fatigue and exhaustion in many patients. Prolonged bed rest, especially in one position will produce back aches. Try and change positions if possible and use pillow between your legs if you are a side sleeper to keep your spine straight. Simple analgesics will help like Ibuprofen.

Carpal Tunnel : You definitely need to be checked out by your PCP and possibly a Pain or Orthopedic specilaist for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This can be caused by repetitive work/activity motion. There is usually no pain at rest. A clinical diagnosis can be easily obtained . Aniinflammatories such as Ibuoprofen are the first line of treatment. Steroid injections have proven very useful for this condition as well.
