Ok, so I do get anxious about stuff and I am particularly anxious about the Coronavirus...

However, for the last few days I have had a low level headache, a mild cough, and a general feeling of unwellness. I have now got myself convinced that I have it and it will get worse... Can anyone reassure me please ??

If it's been going like this for a few days then I think you will be fine.

Have you been to any of the infected areas or in contact with anyone?

But the symptoms are predominantly a high temperature and dry cough. Headache is rarely reported with it.

It's anxiety not corona virus. And even if it is corona virus, I doubt it'll finish you off. Do you worry so much about flu? If not, why not? It kills many many people a year

Unless you have been in at of the areas affected the chance of you having it is tiny.

It is winter, lots of bugs about. You will be fine by this time next week x

Everyone has a cold.

It is most likely to be a cold

Even if it is Coronavirus, you aren’t likely to be affected any worse than if you had a cold.
