Symptoms after I contracted COVID-19

A few days ago, I contracted COVID-19. Unfortunately, I am not an asymptomatic carrier. And it's not just me, two other people in my family have also been knocked down. Here, I will share my symptoms for reference.

Overall, it is similar to flu symptoms. And different people have different manifestations of symptoms, for example, there is a big difference in the fever reduction speed between me and my girlfriend.

At first, my whole body was sore and I had a slight fever. Before going to bed that night, I took a tablet of "Compound Paracetamol and Amantadine Hydrochloride Tablets", but it seemed that it couldn't suppress the fever. Around three or four o'clock in the morning, I woke up in a hallucination, feeling very hot and dizzy, and extremely hungry. At that time, the thermometer I ordered online had not arrived, so I didn't know how high the temperature was. Anyway, to avoid brain malfunction, I got up to cool down my head. First, I applied cold water to my forehead, and then I remembered that there was a bottle of frozen water in the refrigerator, so I used this bottle of water to cool down the towel, and then used the towel to cool down my forehead. After about ten minutes of doing this, my consciousness gradually became clear. I took another tablet of "Compound Paracetamol and Amantadine Hydrochloride Tablets". After continuing to physically cool down for a while, I ate two sesame cakes and then went back to sleep.

The next day, I felt fatigued and weak all over my body, and the soreness intensified. My brain was also sluggish. The fever continued, but it wasn't as severe as last night. At the same time, I started to lose my sense of taste. At noon, I took a tablet of "Compound Acetaminophen Tablets". After taking a nap, I felt much better. In the evening, I took another tablet of the same medication. I went to bed at around 9 o'clock.

Another day passed, and the situation improved somewhat. The fever continued, but it wasn't as severe as before. In the morning, noon, and evening, I took a packet of Ganmaoling granules each time - even though my sense of taste was lost, it still tasted super unpleasant. The thermometer arrived in the evening, and I measured a temperature of 38.3 ℃. I also started coughing at night, the kind that is difficult to suppress. I took "Keteling" but it had no effect, and I coughed intermittently throughout the night.

The next day, my throat felt like it was useless, and it hurt to swallow saliva. The frequency of coughing decreased a bit after getting up, and I also started to have a stuffy nose. My body temperature was still 38 ℃, but I felt much better overall. So I stopped taking medication. It was also at this time that I started recording my symptoms.

December 14, 2022: Body temperature has returned to normal, and I still have intermittent coughing. I am starting to resume my daily coffee.

Day 15: Intermittent coughing continues, and the stuffy nose persists, occasionally a little runny nose. I found that lying down makes me cough more easily.

Day 16: The coughing continues. Other symptoms have basically recovered.
