      Well mine began with some really odd pain in my calf - i was worried about dvt but then it went to my other leg and spread. Thought was maybe pulled muscle so put hot water bottle on to ease it. Then my chest started to feel uncomfortable like a chest infection does. I then had a bit of a headache and my throat was really sore. Had temp 37.8 but only a short time as I started on paracetamol. Tested. Have really bad smell and taste and been really exhausted and disinterested. Now after just over a week am still not well with fatigue and not sleeping great but am definitely starting to feel better - I actually managed a shower and hair wash today and could actually taste a biscuit. Advice was paracetamol and ibuprofen, rest rest and more rest and alot of warm drinks and water also. Hope this helps. Everyone getting their own different symptoms, I didn't really develop a cough just felt I had to keep clearing my throat. Luckily I have had a mild dose clearly. X

      this I think is my 11 week of symptoms with main one being sore throat and tight neck feeling.

      this week has been particularly bad.

      is there anything you've been taking that can help?
