I'm still feeling heaviness in my chest, diarrhea, and a slight cough. Am I testing too early? My symptoms started on the 20th. So far no fevers. My anxiety is probably just making me paranoid.

You might go to your local testing site and get a PCR test. Home testing is more reliable now, but getting the gold standard test might make you feel less anxious. Good luck.

I had a PCR test in my doctors office and it came back negative but I also read that you can test too early. Then I was in the ER for the chest pain and they ran another test there and that was negative too. I'm still anxious about the symptoms but I'm thinking it's gonna be okay. Thank you for your reply! 🙂
Hi @kaitlynottum, I can hear that you are worried about unexplained symptoms and that you recognize that your anxiety may be making you paranoid that this might be COVID. I noticed that some of your posts from last year also talked about the same symptoms of chest pain and heaviness. Did you receive a diagnosis at that time? Are the symptoms different this time that lead you and your care team to think it might be Covid related?
