COVID concerns: Can't diagnose this. This may have just been related to sinuses but because COVID 19 can present with no symptoms or few symptoms, it is possible to rule that out from history alone. COVID 19 Sx's may include 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.
