Its possible: Its not often that EVERYONEl develops all symptoms of COVID. You may have combination of these symptoms not all. So I agree with your doc- stay home, self isolate, keep yourself hydrated, check temp daily , most important, be positive, optimistic, do deep breathing. If you feel horrible, contact your doc
