By the time of this writing, there are more than 380,000,000 coronavirus cases worldwide. Everyone has different symptoms, some lost their tastes, some said it is just a heavy cold, some end up in hospital. As everyone has different reaction, so I decide to share my Covid-19 experience.

Pre-Covid-19 - Few Days before the corona test.

It all started with throat pain, since that day I drank plenty of water, sucking on cough drops, trying to relieve the sore pain. Drank hot lemon water, hoping it will help to relieve irritation and stop the throat feeling dry.

Unfortunately, after two days, it got worse.

Covid-19 Experience Day 1

When I woke up, my throat pain was even worse, and I had a light fever on day 1. So went to see a doctor and do the corona test.

Around 10 pm I got the result, and it was positive. I went to sleep early, and I keep sweating that night.

Covid-19 Experience Day 2

My fever was higher on day 2, went up to 38.6, it was not that high, but feel extremely tired, my throat pain got worse, even drinking water is painful. I sweated so much while sleeping, did I run a marathon in my dream?

Covid-19 Experience Day 3

My fever on day 3 was come and go, sometimes it went down to 37.7, sometimes went back up to 38.5. I started to have bone pain today. I had no energy to do anything, just lay down on the sofa trying to watch TV. I was able to watch one movie.

Covid-19 Experience Day 4

I had no fever anymore on day 4, but I started to cough, just coughed a few times only. The coughing caused by Corona was not that bad, compared to last time I had Bronchitis non-stop coughing. Bronchitis is much worse from my experience.

But when I tried to sleep on day 4, I had pain in my chest, it felt like someone is pushing my lungs, it only happens when I try to sleep.

Covid-19 Experience Day 5

Ok, day 5 was probably the worst day, headache starting to bother me, plus throat pain, bone pain, coughing, pain in my chest, night sweat, what else I was going to get?

Covid-19 Experience Day 6

My bone pain and chest pain seem to be gone on day 6, but my headache got worse. *_*

I felt like the virus was failed to attack my lungs, so now going up for one last chance to destroy me. LOL

Covid-19 Experience Day 7

I thought I was getting better on day 7, but I lost my taste and smell on that day, just like many other people. It is no fun if you are a foodie like me, everything tasted like… no taste. -_- I took a deep breath, I could not even feel the fresh air. Great, I was officially a robot.

Covid-19 Experience Day 8

On day 8, I felt so much better, still have a bit of pain in my throat, but no fever, no bone pain, no chest pain, no more marathon at night, my energy started to come back. But still a robot, no taste, and no smell.


I think on day 9, I don’t have any more symptoms, I am no longer a robot, as my taste and smell are back.

Do I have Long Covid?
Maybe, maybe not. I don’t know, I tried to do some exercise on day 10, but I get tired so easily, I was not like that. I hope I can get back to my level soon.

From my Covid-19 experience, it was not the worst experience of being sick, I had worse before, it is just annoying to have so many symptoms and last long.

Remember, the above article is for informational only, not medical advice. I hope you will never have that experience.

What is Covid-19?

Coronavirus is a family of viruses that can cause illness, ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The virus that emerged in December 2019, called SARS-CoV-2, is the cause of the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID-19 is a highly infectious and potentially severe respiratory illness that can spread from person to person through respiratory droplets when an infected individual coughs or sneezes. It can also be transmitted by touching an object or surface that has the virus on it and then touching the mouth, nose, or eyes. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
