Is there a specifc time frame from protential exposure that ASR symptoms occurs? I have read that if you do have ASR symptoms that they usually show between 2-4 weeks after potential infection date. Would it be possible to have ASR symptoms around 8 weeks after potential infection or do the symptoms usually show up fast, if they do show at all?
I was tested; however, it was only after 2-3 weeks after possible infection (probably a waste of a test). I plan on getting tested again in early June. Right now, I am about 8 weeks from possible infection date. I was going to wait until June to make sure I have a full 3 months to be certain of test results. My question was regarding the time frame of ASR symptoms (if they do occur at all). Is 8 weeks usually out of the ASR window? I understand that one could be infected and never have ASR symptoms; however, starting yesterday, I began to have a slight sore throat along with body (muscle) aches. I do not have a fever.
