I had a fever for two days and felt a little pain in my chest and throat with body weakness on the fourth day. Now I am eating, moving, and walking normally. I doubt it is COVID-19 because I came in contact with infected people.
My question is if it is COVID-19, is it the end of it as I feel less pain? Or I may have other symptoms again?
I am currently taking Paracetamol and Azithromycin.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
I feel sorry for your discomfort.
COVID-19 causes several symptoms including those happening to you. In addition, it causes breathlessness, cough, diarrhea, loss of smell, appetite, which associated with positive COVID-19 swab culture test and lung CT (computerized tomography) scan ground glass finding, can prove its presence. Hence to know for sure, you need to get tested for at least the swab test. The symptoms may have reduced for now but it has a tendency to revisit by 7-10th day.
In addition to the test, I recommend you do the following.
1. Steam inhalation thrice daily.
2. Salt water gargles twice daily.
3. Diet with rich proteins (meat, lentils, beans, soyabean, milk) and citrus fruits (sweet lime, lemon, orange, etc.).
4. Take tablet Zinc 50 mg one tablet twice daily for 15 days, Vitamin C 500 mg one tablet twice daily for 15 days, Vitamin D3 60K units one capsule once a week for four weeks.
Please look out for an increase in current symptoms and breathlessness. Please revert after the test and taking medicines in the next four to five days.
