I was very ill before the first lockdown with ehat I thought was a bad cold, but thought it wasn't corona as i had no cough at all. But I've been hearing more and more of confirmed cases woth no cough and although no one can tell me here if i had it i was wondering if anyone had similar symptoms and a positive test??

I had high temperature on snd iff for about 5 days, above 39 then lower then back up again. Felt completely wiped out, exhausted.
Sore throat and then completely blocked sinuses, not ordinary runny nose but blockage much deeper and impossible to clear. Sinus pain.
Stomach pain and diarrhoea. That's roughly the order, temperature was throughout.
I actually found it strange I didn't get a cough as usually I would.
During this my DS 7 had a day of sore throat and headaches. DS 5 never seemed to have symptoms, DH had headaches and sore throat after i was already feeling better.

Anyone read this far and had similar??

Have you been tested? High temperature means you should have been.

The covid app seems to suggest a cough isn't one of the most common symptoms in some age groups

Testing was a mess before the first lockdown.

Sorry, I was reading that she had a temperature now. Never mind. The graphic is quite interesting though

I just had a headache for a week and no sense of smell. No cough or fever here!

I guess I'll never actually know now but it's been on my mind a bit.
Yes, no testing was available then as is now.

I know 3 adults & 1 child who’ve had it recently. Zero cough between any of them. No chest symptoms what so ever.. all 3 adults (who don’t know each other) had migraine like headaches for up to 7 days, exhaustion & loss of taste/smell. The 3 year old had a very upset stomach, fever for a couple hours and runny nose. He was right as rain in 48 hours. The adults all felt naff for a week. All fully recovered.
