Worked on a hospital ward last Friday and Sunday, since Tuesday I've come down with a dry cough, experienced bad fatigue on Tuesday and other symptoms such as leg ache and chest ache although it isn't constant. I thought nothing of it and went out to shop as normal thinking it was just flu, until I'd remembered I'd had my flu jab

The chest ache sounds serious. How painful is it out of 10.
10 being the worst
1 being the least worse

It was about a 5 on Tuesday night but since then it's subsided. I'm not having much difficulty breathing or a fever which is why I'm not sure what it could be

If I'm exerting myself I find myself getting overheated and fatigued more easily but I don't think my temperature is different to normal

Dial 111, the symptoms normally wouldn’t show that quickly though.

I had had a slight cough that started a few days before but as it wasn't continuous when I rang nhs 111 on thursday they said it didn't seem like coronavirus. I'm self isolating anyway

I can’t take you seriously with that profile pic. If I could choose any animated one it would be Homer Simpson eating a burger.

I'm so sorry but it is corona virus. I'm being serious. You have to self-isolate. No joke. Just pray that you recover.

"went out to shop" lol you're trolling right? no way a hospital worker would be that dumb.

No worries, I started after I'd remembered I'd had my flu jab and not been out since

You went out with these symptoms because you 'thought nothing of it' during a worldwide pandemic of a respiratory illness you have likely come into contact with and have the symptoms of? Seriously?

There is nothing to say it couldn't be flu, the jab isnt 100% effective. I'm still doubtful it is because I don't have fever which is supposed to appear in 80 or 90% of cases

You should definitely quarantine yourself for 2 weeks minimum - you should know this already, it’s practically written everywhere. If it is the Coronavirus, from what you have written you’re symptoms sound mild at best and if you have no underlying conditions I would assume you would have a speedy recovery - though this isn’t always the case. If your symptoms get worse and you have difficulty breathing, phone into 111. All the best and rest easy.
