I have little headache in this evening just around 2 hours and the symptom is stopped without taking any pill. However after the headache gone, my body feel warm more than normal and I feel uncomfortable. I have no symptom like cough/high fever/sore throat but I so curious it’s my condition is normal. Do this symptom is related to Covid-19. So far I haven’t travel to other country but just travel to Kedah in the end of February by KTM train. I working in KL sentral and was started working from home since 18th March. Please help me on clarification , I am so curious. Thanks in advance doctor.

We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.

For you information, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:

  • Fever (morea than 37.5 degrees celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sorethroat
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath

However, it is difficult to distinguish coronavirus infection from other health problems that manifest almost similar symptoms. Thus, you are encouraged to answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories with appropriate steps that should be taken. This initiative is to reduce crowd coming to the hospital for screening in fear of coronavirus infection as well as to avoid you going out from the house unnecessarily.

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link
