This answer was rated:

I was very poorly back in Fe bruary for 3-4 weeks. Had flue vac. So it wasnt that....sore throat temperature fir a few days, persistant cough...awake night after night.. than a wheezy..Conjuntivitus in bith eyes. So managed to get to Doctor then, She gave me antibiotic cream .. I think I may have had the Corona virus....Is it possible for me to have a blood test when available to see if I have antibodies....
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, when were you prescribed the antibiotic? How severe were any side effects?
Customer: It was for my eyes...conjunctivitis started about 2 weeks after other symptoms. AndJust cough medicine.
JA: Thanks for that. Have you used anything besides the antibiotic for this?
Customer: No.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.

Antibody tests are being developed and some are already available infact for testing. Their efficacy is still very much unknown. Once a reliable test is available, you may get tested. If it shows presence of IgG antibodies then that means you had infection sometime in the past..... May be February or some other time.

Reason I ask is that symptoms where exactly as described on tv......and a doctor mentioned Conjuntivitus the other day also....So would like to know if I had it ..if possible please.... I am 77 and a widow it was a bit frightening..Am in good health, but this did take it out of me a bit.... Thankyou...
