COVID-19: Reports of symptoms recurring or persisting after Covid-19 are known, as are persons who test falsely positive or negative. It sounds as though you had the disease, but another viral disease known as the "flu"may be present. If I were you, I would find a trusted MD familiar with Covid-19 and be evaluated. A test might be helpful, but hardly conclusive.
