Yesterday morning, I awoke with a slight tickle in my throat. Other than an occasional slight cough, it was nothing. I went to bed early last night – before sunset. Even though I was extra tired, I could not get to sleep. My mind was racing up this pathway and down that one. On top of that, my coughing became constant.
After several hours of making no progress on getting to sleep, I got up and watched television for a couple of hours. Then, with over-the-counter medications, I was able to stop the drainage in the back of my throat, causing the cough. After returning to bed, I found my mind still above 100 mph.
Overall, I had no meaningful sleep at all last night. This morning, I had a very slight headache (on the top of my head and behind my eyes). The over-the-counter meds and no sleep probably caused my fatigue. My blood pressure was slightly elevated, and a barely perceptible fever. No sore throat or runny nose was observed. Taste and smell were normal
I do not believe I have any variant of the COVID-19. However, I wondered what other people might do when faced with similar circumstances – some of the symptoms, but not enough to quantifiably diagnose coronavirus. What would you do?
