Been sick since 7/24/20. Could it possibly be from COVID-19? Here`s my symptoms.?
I`m asking about this because I`m a 75 yr. old man and have absolutely no idea what I`ve got. None of the symptoms match the classic COVID19 symptoms, but who knows. I have been trying to self isolate myself from my family just in case. I have asthma and my wife has diabetes. Here`s my symptoms: Low grade (99.8) fever that comes and goes. All food tastes about 5 times as strong as they should. It`s disgusting. I`ve lost 12 pounds in 12 days and I was already skinny. While lying in bed at night, I have this weird smell in my nose. It`s not the smell of a sinus infection. It`s just an odd smell I`ve never smelled before, but it`s there all night, every night. No runny nose. No sore throat. Have a constant fairly bad, dull headache. Pretty bad abdominal pain. Hurts to even push on it. Some nausea and have thrown up a few times. Loss of my short term memory and I`m having some confusion problems. Can`t walk across a room w/o catching my breath, but no asthma problems. I`ve had very little sleep and I`m physically very fatigued all the time. When I walk up my staircase to go to bed, I have to do it in three stages or I`d keel over. The biggest thing I`m curious about is even though my symptoms don`t precisely match those for COVID19, there are elements that are similar, i.e., taste and smell stuff. I also know it`s not the Flu because I had the Flu in early June and there`s no doubt at all that it was the Flu. Appreciate any assistance and good luck to all.

Fever is a symptom of covid, loss of taste is another but you have the opposite of that.
Some symptoms sound like maybe a mini stroke with the smell, taste, headache and memory/confusion but not sure about the other symptoms over the rest of your body.
I would suggest seeing a doctor rather than trying to get a diagnosis from random people online with no real knowledge.

Covid is LOSS of taste and smell and the fever stays. Could be a different virus, can you go and get tested ?
