It seems like we are hearing about new symptoms related to the coronavirus almost weekly. The virus is hard to pinpoint without a positive test, because the symptoms seem to be so similar to the common cold or the seasonal flu.

People are also reporting they have symptoms that seem to be atypical for most. Some have developed red eyes, some are even reporting that they have purple swollen toes. But, these don’t seem to be common symptoms of the coronavirus.

Fever and cough seem to be the most common symptom. Still, there are other people who never develop a fever.

There is also evidence that the virus causes other complications in some patients, affecting the liver, kidneys, heart, and intestines.

Despite ALL of these bizarre symptoms, the CDC has released a list of the 11 most common symptoms of COVID-19.

Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting


These symptoms have been seen to develop anywhere from 2 days after being infected with the virus, to 2 weeks after exposure.

The most common symptoms are fever and cough, but again, some people don’t get fever at all. The virus truly affects each person just a little bit differently.

Shortness of breath is also a common symptoms, and possibly the most dangerous.

The CDC does outline a list of symptoms that should NOT be ignored. If you, or someone you know, has these symptoms, go to the hospital.

Trouble breathing
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
New confusion
Inability to wake or stay awake
Bluish lips or face


If you think you have the coronavirus, call your doctor. I can tell you from experience, they may not have you come into the office, or they may have you come as the last patient of the day, when nobody else is in the office.

Stay safe out there.
