Can I please ask anyone who's had this, what their first symptoms were, please?

Am on day 3 of feeling 'virusy', slight headache and slightly achy up my neck, temp between 37 and 38, fatigued, loss of appetite now, though yesterday I was craving protein. My teen dc also v similar. Others in our family have no symptoms. Feeling scared

I felt wheezy and chest felt tight.... had to take bra off as it felt too tight around my ribs. Cough didn’t start until a few days later.

When I believe I had it (I wasn’t tested) it was a sore throat and chills.

Constant sneezing, runny nose, mild tight chest (which progressively became worse) and alight breathlessness (which also became worse). Slightly elevated temp 37.8 and a mild lethargy/anxious feeling.

My teen ds, started with fever and horrendous headache, was sick, he is a migraine sufferer and does vomit with those so not sure if that was Covid related, mild cough, breathlessness about day 6, horrendous cough next morning and brought a load of phelgm up, day 8&9 fever spiked again and he developed an agonising sore throat. He was in bed for 13 days and even a week later was extremely fatigued, now 5 week down the line he is still a bit tired and appetite is not good, but otherwise is fine.
Nobody else in house got it, he stayed in his room and used main bathroom, rest of us used en suite.

He had the achy limbs all the way through it, he said he has never felt so bad, he had Kawasaki disease when a toddler ,that was the last time i was so worried about him.

Severe headache (on and off) and tiredness over 6 days, then really severe fatigue, aches and a flu-like feeling. Then lost my appetite and got chills then a temperature. I was so exhausted that I couldn't do anything but stay in bed. I then had a wheezy cough everytime I got up, accompanied my breathlessness.

When I look back, the headache was the first symptom, but because at that time (Mid March), there was so much emphasis on a cough and a temperature, I just thought that I was tired because I had been busy.

I wasn't tested but my first symptom was very sore throat, followed by severe heartburn which made me think it was GERD (never suffered from it before), then I ended up getting very short of breath, I had to stop every 2 mins to try and get some air in and also had a low grade fever, fatigued easily and aches and pains.

The muscle aches - started mild but got a lot worse. Then got most of the other symptoms but the muscle aches lasted 2.5 weeks and was hell! Could barely move, only to get a hot water bottle and have a hot bath to ease it. Didn't start taking temp until a couple of weeks in but felt a bit hot on day 3 so probably had slight temp then
