Brief Answer:
Great question

Detailed Answer:
So that is a great question, my name is Dr. David G and I hope to help here.

We do see a lot of unusual symtpoms after resolving from COVID, so you are not alone here, the tingling sensation and chest discomfort can be from resolving COVID or potentially other causes but COVID (depending on how severe you had the infection) can result in what is referred to as PLEURISY or chest discomfort. That is very common and the reports of myocarditis while not common can be seen as well here. There is a number of COVID side effects that we do see regarding numbness, tingling and even balance issues that also are observed in patients recovering. Now I do have to say with your symtpoms this is something that I think you need checked out for, namely an EKG and Chest Xray. I do think COVID is a potentially cause but I really can't exclude other causes here, so it does need explored more thoroughly.

Please reach back out with any questions or concerns, I really do want to help!
