Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. But that information is still not enough to get rid of or even establish a diagnosis of covid infection from yourself.
This is because covid's symptoms are not specific and very diverse, ranging from no symptoms at all, diarrhea, painful swallowing, coughing, to severe shortness of breath, which symptoms also exist in a variety of other medical conditions, such as the effects of smoking, pneumonia, asthma, heart disease, kidney disease, even psychic or mental influences due to anxiety itself.
Regarding the fact that you have never been in contact with positive people, with the current condition where the virus infection has spread, this information is not very important anymore. Because it could be that apparently healthy people you meet are positive. Moreover, you just came from the hospital. The co-patient may not go in with you, but the virus is left there.
In essence, before a deeper examination, such as with an x-ray, rapid test or swab test, your diagnosis cannot be made. All possibilities can happen. Therefore, we recommend that you immediately consult yourself to a pulmonary doctor or at least to a general practitioner to be examined, determined, and handled according to your needs.
Meanwhile, do not leave the house if there is no important business, leave cigarettes for good, exercise regularly according to ability, adequate rest, multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables, consume supplements, and manage stress well. So, hopefully answering your question.
