Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Could you please tell me your age and whether you’ve been in contact with anyone who has Covid-19?
And was it a PCR or lateral flow fast test?
Your symptoms could just be due to simple cold or flu. It doesn’t mean you have Covid-19.
There is no need for a phone call
Can you tell me your main symptoms and if you have any breathing issues?
If you’re feeling unwell in yourself, you should contact out of hours service in your local area. Is there such service? I am not sure if you are a late call NHS 111 in Scotland.
And it would be useful if you get a PCR test which is more accurate.
If your breathing is OK, you can just monitor this until tomorrow when you can contact your GP. You could try warm drinks with lemon/honey and steaming. You can take paracetamol for fever and pain.
