Down with symptoms and positive lfts

I found a fever on Monday. I took two paracetamol but it didn't come down. After an hour I took two ibuprofen. The fever was very stubborn. It took two hours to go from 38.8 to 38. I remained in fever all day Monday and into Tuesday morning. I had some aches over the day on Monday. I wasn't worried about covid. I didn't think of covid as a possibility. I have another condition and I thought I was in a flare. So I thought it was that. My fever was over 39 on Tuesday morning. I took more paracetamol. I had difene in my medicine cabinet from before and I read the leaflet and it said its for inflammation so I took a tablet. That took down my fever.

I tested today on Wednesday on several tests. I wasn't going to test but I was encouraged to test. Positive on three home tests. I never considered covid as a possibility. I felt well this morning.

So far it's all reasonably mind. I have my taste and smell.

Just wondering will it stay still mild or will I deteriorate with this condition.

I can't believe it's covid. Monday and Tuesdays fever gave me a fright because I thought my other condition was flaring.

Day nurse and night nurse are helping me immensely so you can always fall back on them, I'd be a bit weary as it could get worse for you but hopefully it won't.

Are you vaccinated? In pre vaccination times is was day 5 when people who were going to become really ill became ill. In my family’s experience the first 3 days max were the worst.

I am vaccinated, thank goodness.

I got two doses of Pfizer originally and then I got a booster last winter followed by another booster in the spring time.

I have some medicine ordered. Hopefully will be delivered to me tomorrow.

I found the first 2-3 days worst, felt a bit breathless and weird on day 5/6, then much better BUT very, very tired for a good couple of weeks after. Not ill, just exhausted. As you've had four vaccines you must be vulnerable, so just keep an eye on yourself and contact someone if you are worried. An oxymeter is very useful.

I have to ask though, why didn't you think it could be Covid? There's a lot of it about at the moment and a fever is one of the main symptoms.
