Persistent discomfort, tightness on/off – what is happening?
A week later and my throat started to feel itchy. Went to the doctor's again, who checked me for other COVID symptoms and found them to be negative. But my throat was indeed inflammed, so the doctor gave me a 5-day MC. During the 5 days I never really felt 100% during the day – but I took my temperature regularly with an oral thermometer (the highest it went was 37.2C though I felt warmer than usual); there were also occasional coughs, but mostly to clear the itch.
Today's day 6 and the itchiness have subsided greatly. While I remain functional, I still feel the tightness, lightheadedness, and feverish. What is happening?
