Hi,

I’m a female in my mid 20s. Since few days ago I’m feeling weak & tired, a lack of energy in my body and also sleepiness. I am experiencing some pressure in my head as well which makes me a bit uncomfortable, but it’s not dizziness. Besides that, I am breathing in & out a bit heavily. Sometimes, I will also experience a sudden body heat that will make me sweat a little.

I have this cough problem since years ago, but it is always to excrete the phlegm. My GP told me that the phlegm excretion is due to anxiety. Besides that I do not have any other symptoms.

Please advise if this is related to covid.
