I just wondered if you think you’ve had it or know you have did you symptoms come on slowly or did you suddenly just feel really poorly?

I’ve had exhaustion and tight chest plus a kind of ache pain in my back and chest when breathing for a few weeks but it’s not painful if you see what I mean. I Thought it was hayfever to be honest but family members are a bit worried.
I have no temp although I am freezing all of the time and just feel totally fatigued

I don’t think it’s Covid for what it’s worth but just wondered about other experiences symptom wise

The problem is that everyone has different symptoms. I felt really fatigued 2 or 3 days before I got a fever. Looking back it was the virus about to come on. Take paracetamol if you get a fever it does help but don’t worry I don’t reckon it is Covid if you think it’s been coming on a few weeks x

I thought it was typically a gradual onset unlike flu. There is a possibility I had it and a strong probability my boss did. We both complained of feeling off/tired/drained for a few days before we moved on to fever/aches and chills and cough.
