I Think I Had Covid Last Week

No, I didn't get tested. 

 

I had a sore throat for a couple of days, which led me to believe that a cold was coming on.  Not a severe sore throat, which is normally a sure sign of an oncoming cold. 

 

Day 3 came and went, the sore tgroat continued, and I thought that the cold was just late. I did take some antibiotics to avoid any secondary infection. 

 

Day 4 came, and i still had a minor sore throat. I was thinking about taking an ATK test, but those things are useless for Omicron. 

 

Day 5 came, and the sore throat was almost gone. 

 

Day 6 came, and it was gone. 

 

Maybe I just had some random sore throat, or maybe i had a very mild case of Covid. If so, my 7 vaccinations probably helped me.

On what basis do you say ATK tests are useless for Omicron? I've detected COVID several times in family members with them.

 

If you were unvaccinated, a 500 baht blood test for antibodies would establish if you had COVID. If you were vaccinated, you will never know.

Should have taken ATK, worked for me for Omicron. Now you'll never know. Antibiotics weren't necessary 

Yes, Omicron tends to be a non event. No sore throat, but the weird feeling of having fever, without while having normal temperature. I took Paracetamol for 3 and half days. Could have done without, but I am no masochist.

I know you try to be funny, but when I was active I went to work with symptoms a lot worse than those from Omicron...

For me it was about as mild as possible, sore throat, runny nose 1 day, little temperature half a day, tiredness couple days, that was about it text book symptoms, but weirdly i was left with a long covid of head spin

I'm not trying to be funny, It's a legitimate question.

Don't think it is anymore. Just get your booster shots and make sure you know a clinic that can give you Paxlovid.

Omicron affects the lungs extremely rarely. 

 

I have prostate cancer, 14000 PVCs a day, Barett's oesophagus, sex addiction and a neurotic cat.

In the absence of other symptoms, I think it likely it wasn't covid.  Typically, one might also suffer cold like symptoms- you know runny nose, headache, sneezing, spluttery cough.

 

On the other hand, if you did have any of those other symptoms, then yes very likely you did have Omicron.

 

Strep throat perhaps or even tonsillitis.

'Headspin'.  How long have the symptoms been going on?

6 months but only occurs when lying down sometimes, getting less and less. According to NHS online it's caused by crystals forming in the inner ear

Thats not true. Your body tells you if you are sick or not ie sore throat, coughing etc

We are talking about covid. The body tells you if you are really sick.
