Possibility of Covid or other sort of infection?

Answered by: Dr Sri Viknarajan

Hi there. I have been having a persistent dry cough for over a week now and lately my head & neck has been feeling a little warm and they both hurt as well. Whenever I feel this my body just goes weak.
I am breathing fine and have no sore throat or fever.
What do you doctors suggest? Is this a covid threat or am I just panicking. ( I have a history of anxiety and panic attacks).
