I am actually starting to cough now, albeit infrequently. And after 5 days of getting ill? Odd...

My blood test results came out. Said my liver levels were slightly low and he wanted me to check if I had hepatitis just to be on the safe side (so another blood test, as well as an abdomen chest).

You have symptoms that are common for people with COVID-19, but they are also symptoms of other illnesses. Because you don't know, you will need to take precautions as though you have the virus.

While you isolate, you’ll need to monitor your symptoms. You need to call the doctor if they get worse, or if you have shortness of breath.
"

As I said, I was TESTED NEGATIVE either way. I won't be very anxious about it. To be honest, when I made the the thread, I was thinking of cancer or something. Because you can get flu-like symptoms for cancer. I was more fearful of that.

As I said before: Even in the best-case scenario (aka your viral load is at it's highest peak when you have the test done), COVID PCR tests run at least 20% false negative.

I'm not saying this to freak you out or to say that you have it. However, simply the fact that you "tested negative" doesn't mean you don't.
