Question: Hello my name is XXXXXXX I have had covid 19 a while now. I started getting symptoms 6/16 and have tested positive 3 times. I don't have a fever anymore but my chest still hurts. I've tried to see a Dr but no one will see me in person right now. I don't know what to do. Do I keep getting tested or do I just wait to feel better?

Brief Answer:
Did you have any chest x ray?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
No need for further testing.
Corona Virus can damage lungs permanently.
So we need to rule out permanent lung damage in your case because you have chest discomfort.
So please let me know
1. Do you have cough, breathlessness?
2. Did you have any chest x ray done?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions so that I can guide you better about medicines and investigations.
Wish you good health. Thanks.
