Showing symptoms.. can’t differentiate between flu, allergies, cold, COVID.

I live in Ohio AND there are about 14 cases in my county now - my kids have been sick for about 2 weeks; Starting 3/13.
I didn’t feel sick until a week after them. It all started with an awful upper respiratory sickness - we’re all on antibiotics now for sinus infections which also gave me a stye in my eyelid.

About a week ago I was in the ED for stomach pains which we thought was appendicitis, which is wasn’t. I’m having some awful chest burning on top of it.. I feel extremely winded after regular household chores.I’m also having AWFUL body aches. I haven’t really had A fever - they say afever is 100.4 and mine hasn’t gone above 100.1 .....my Kids are experiencing the same thing with their temps.
Other than the ED we haven’t been out of our house for 2 weeks.. when I was there I had a mask and was very cautious. Showered and changed as soon as I got home. My husband is still working as he is in the grocery distribution industry...
Idk what I’m looking for anybody to say. I’m just panicking and needed to vent about my fears
*** I should add the symptoms seem to be hitting me in waves. I don’t have a high temp all day only at times and my body aches come and go.... I’m about 5 days into feeling like this

Omg I literally had the same symptoms. I was sick for almost 3 weeks. Went to my PP and he gave me a flu test. It came back negative, so he said it was a really bad sinus infection. I was put on prednisone and augmentin. I feel like none of the medications helped. A few days ago I went to urgent care, because I was feeling some chest pain. They did an X-ray and ekg, took some blood BUT of course no covid test. I’m 34, female, and haven’t traveled to any of those high risk places recently so I was not a candidate. My anxiety is at an all time high, like I’m losing sleep every night because of this. I just had to take a Xanax just to alleviate possible thoughts that haunt me at night!! I hope you’re well!!

my headache is almost gone, but my throat feels weird/dry almost like it’s trying to turn sore if that make sense. I still feel al little ran down. My husband still feels fatigued/achy and has a headache now too. No fevers so far praying we don’t develop one!

I am so sorry that all of you are feeling ill, I can only imagine how worrying it must be in these times. It could be a normal cold/flu/sinus infection, all which still are doing the rounds, but I'm sure that the worry is always there that it's something else. I've heard that many who have/have had a milder form of Covid-19 have reported symptoms of loss of taste and smell and obviously a fever and a "barking" cough are 2 of the main indicators of the virus. Conjunctivitis can also be a symptom. Thinking of you all and keep us updated xx

I read that about conjunctivitis! That’s why the stye in my eye scared me so much! My doctor assured me the two are completely different though.. and there were no cases of a stye. I’m feeling achey still but the chest pain is gone now. Still no fever and no barking cough... my cough seems to be from clearing my throat/sinus drip. PRt of me thinks the aching might be from the amoxicillin.. I haven’t taken it in years. It’s definitely causing stomach pain/issues
