COVID-19 can lead to elevated blood pressure in some individuals, particularly during the acute phase of the illness. This increase in blood pressure is often temporary and may be related to the body's stress response to the infection.

Yes, COVID-19 can cause gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhea, in some individuals. Diarrhea may occur along with other symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, cough, and respiratory issues, or it may be one of the primary symptoms.

Yes, COVID-19 has been associated with an increased risk of blood clot formation, which can lead to conditions like deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and other thrombotic complications. This heightened risk of blood clots is one of the factors contributing to the severity and complications of the disease, particularly in severe cases.

COVID-19 primarily affects the respiratory system and can lead to pneumonia or lung inflammation in some cases. While lung nodules are not a common symptom of COVID-19, severe or persistent lung damage from the virus could potentially result in the formation of nodules in the lungs, although this is relatively rare.

There have been reports of changes in menstrual patterns among some individuals who have had COVID-19, but more research is needed to understand the extent and mechanisms of these effects. 

COVID-19 can affect the eyes, and some individuals with the virus have reported eye-related symptoms such as redness, irritation, and conjunctivitis. However, eye symptoms are not as common as other respiratory and systemic symptoms of COVID-19, and they typically occur alongside other manifestations of the virus.
