Detailed Answer:
Hi....
Welcome to "Ask a Doctor"service.
I am Dr Ajeet XXXXXXX

I have gone through your query and here is my opinion.

As per WHO recommendations,the symptomatology of COVID 19 also includes chills,cough,breathlessness,loss of smell and taste in addition to fever.
There can be severe muscle pains,headache,diarrhoea or sore throat.

As you and your mother were exposed to COVID 19 patient and are symptomatic,a PCR Test for COVID 19 is strongly recommended.

Hope that I have answered your query.

Stay healthy and stay blessed.
Regards.
