Mild COVID-19 Symptoms - Will they get worse? (I'm on day 5)

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hi there,

I tested positive for Covid 5 days ago. The day I got tested was the worse day of symptoms for me (stuffy nose, headaches, and body aches). The days following, I felt better but lost my smell and taste. I am on day 5 and I still feel okay, besides fatigue and occasional headaches. I'm curious if anyone with mild symptoms experienced worsening symptoms after a few days of feeling better. Is it possible that I could get another "wave" of more serious symptoms after feeling better? I haven't been able to find any information related to this question. Thanks in advance for the help!

    I dont think there is an answer to be honest because everyones symptoms are always so different. Just dont over do things and relax. Fingers crossed you are feeling 100% soon.

    Hi. Im in exactly the same position as you were! I tested positive on Tuesday and have experienced a range of mild symptoms following this. Sore throat, congestion and high temp. And pain in my right hand side rib area.

    My temperature dropped back to normal yesterday and symptoms have eased somewhat except for the congestion. My voice has been affected slightly too!

    Problem Im finding is trying to work out whether it is going to get worse or am I coming through it and its going away - I cant find anywhere which has this information!

    If anyone can share anything it would help - merry xmas!
