I have been feeling fever for 2 days, but I don’t cough and runny nose. just feel like lack of oxygen. Can you say the symptoms of Covid-19?
Thank you for the question.
Fever and discomfort when breathing (like lack of oxygen) can not only be caused by COVID-19 (new Corona virus infection). Your complaints can also occur due to other triggers, such as infection with other microorganisms, pleural effusion, bronchitis, asthma, pharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, heart problems, peptic ulcers, gastric acid reflux, psychological disorders, and so on.
Differentiating COVID-19 and various conditions above today is quite difficult, considering the symptoms of COVID-19 are not always the same in everyone. However, you are advised to be more vigilant if in the last 2 weeks you have been in contact with COVID-19 sufferers, have traveled or have contacted people who have traveled to an area with a COVID-19 outbreak. Because with the risk factors above, your chances of contracting COVID-19 are much greater.
Referring to the complaint you made, it seems that your condition is mild. It's better not to panic. Resolve your complaint by:
Do not leave the house, unless there is an emergency matter
Improve your personal hygiene, including by not carelessly exchanging personal belongings with others
Take paracetamol while still having a fever
Get more rest
Don't eat too late
Do not contact with cold, smoke, dust, cigarettes, and other triggers of tightness
Don't think too much
Regularly exercise to improve tightness, and endurance increases
If the fever remains high for more than 3 days, or if the tightness that you feel is burdensome, we recommend that you check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine for further evaluation and treatment according to your condition.
I hope this helps.
