喉咙有异物感,有时感觉被掐,有时感觉很难喘气,有时里面感觉烧烧的。心跳有时跳很快,感觉自己要发烧了,可是量体温时却没有发烧。(女,22岁)
I always feel that throat has something, and sometimes feel like my neck being pinched by others, sometimes feel difficult to breath, and feel burning inside my body.
Heartbeat sometimes very fast, feel like wanna fever, but when check temperature is no fever.
Is it the symptom of covid-19? Or what happen to me?
