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.

I have puss on tonceles and large bumps on back of tongue and throat but don't hurt. Do u know what could be wrong?

Probably normal: If you do not have pain and no fever then this may be normal. All of our tongues have bumps on the back of them and just maybe you never noticed them. The tonsils can collect debris and dead cells that slough off and these can collect as small white plugs in the tonsil itself. If there is no pain it is unlikely that you have an infection.
