Symptoms?: I agree with Dr. Hickerson. This could be the start of a viral infection. Rest, hydrate & eat healthfully. Consider use of acetaminophen. I will just list some COVID symptoms to monitor for: fever, cough, feeling tired, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, chills, chest pain, nasal congestion, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.
