Coronavirus is threatening human life on Earth at present, spreading so rapidly that it has already taken thousands of lives. India is in a state of shutdown, to curb the spreading of the virus. The number of positive cases has nearly reached 500, and it is only going to increase by each passing day.
Amidst the chaos that is prevalent in the world right now, a woman who has recently recovered from the virus has tweeted all of her symptoms from Day 1 to Day 14. This would be of great use and help to everyone, especially in identifying if you might have caught the virus.
Day 1: It started with a mild DRY cough and a slightly sore throat. I was very tired that night.
Day 2: I felt a lot of pressure in my head to the point I would have to cough softly to avoid the discomfort. That night, I experienced the chills and had a fever. One main symptom that stood out to me, my eyes physically hurt. They were tender and sore.
Day 3: Energy levels VERY low, I only slept, and still ran fevers. At this point, my symptoms were: dry cough, migraine, fever, chills, some nausea. I decided to go to the doctors where I tested negative for the flu and strep.
Day 4: Finally no more fever, but a new symptom showed up: shortness of breath. It was uncomfortable, it felt like I had bricks on my chest. I tried the self diagnose test I read online (hold your breath and count to 10) which I successfully did with no complications.
Day 5: Symptoms: sore throat, cough, shortness of breath. I went to the same doctor and I was very adamant about getting tested. Doctor said my vitals were “unremarkable” but I wasn’t going to take no for an answer! I also requested chest X-rays, everything came out normal.
Day 6 – With the continued use of antibiotics and ibuprofen, my symptoms were: sore throat, cough, shortness of breath. My energy levels began to increase.
Day 7 – Symptoms: slight sore throat, mild cough, shortness of breath. Energy levels increasing.
Day 8 – Symptoms: Mild cough, starting to feel like myself again. Energy!
Day 9 – Symptoms: My cough was a little heavier, normal energy levels.
Day 10 – Symptoms: Mild cough, mucus, normal energy levels. My lab results came in: POSITIVE.
