Because COVID-19 can present with many different symptoms, it can be hard for the public to know whether something like a cough means they have the virus. Dr. John Lynch, medical director of infection control and prevention at Harborview Medical Center, explains one way to distinguish if something is a possible coronavirus symptom is whether it's new. So, if you suffer from chronic migraines, is the headache you're feeling similar to that or something new? Lynch adds if you are concerned and have access, get a test. Otherwise. you should self-isolate for the current recommendation of 10 days. just as if you were infected.
