Can You have Covid and not know it - or attribute it so Something Else?

For two weeks I have been really sick, but now quite a bit better. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, which comes with a myriad of symptoms that change from from day to day, hour to hour. I take 8 mg methotrexate once a week and it keeps me in remission. Used Humira initially for 3 months. It is an autoimmune disease.

Here is how I felt: Lots of clear mucus all day and night with clogged ears for two weeks. No temperature higher than 99 and that occurred only once. Coughing which I attributed to the constant mucus production. Slight continuous headache. Vomiting and diarrhea at the same time. Happened only once. Extreme fatigue and weakness, much more than the usual bone crushing tiredness.

Any medical professionals or fellow RA patients who would like to weight in?

This went on for 2 weeks. I didn't call my PCP or RA specialist, b/c at the time I didn't attribute it to possible COVID.

From what I've read some people do contract the virus and never present any symptoms. Lots of people have been tested who show the antibodies for COVID-19 (that come after you've had the virus) but never were sick.

It’s been seven months, OP, possibly eight. You’re really asking this question?

Have you been under a rock or in a cave with no social media or news information?

Probably you are a pig, OP.

Ooh, that’s not good. That’s like taking a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
