Have you had Covid? (that you know of?)

Some people do get Covid and have no symptoms, but presumably if that were so, it would be surprising to have symptoms (of long Covid) now.  Is feeling drugged when you wake up the main problem?
Also, do you live in an area where Lyme Disease is common?
brain fog, memory, and aching all over but I put that down to my age and osteoarthitis
When you see the doctor, ask if there is a way to check for both Lyme disease (I think there's a blood test but am not sure), and for an earlier exposure to Covid that possibly went unnoticed. You could even take a Covid test now, but if you have had this a month, it would be an unusual case. The brain fog is a pretty classic Covid symptom and the aching-all-over is more like Lyme. (Of course, it could be something totally different, which is why I assume you're going to check with the doc. I just wouldn't rule either thing out without some discussion.)
Ask for the ELISA test and if that’s positive get a Western blot.

If you live in the northeast, rural, mountainous areas (google where black legged ticks live) definitely get lyme checked out!! When I had lyme my only symptoms were increased fatigue and brain fog- barely any aches/pains, I didn’t notice a rash, never saw a tick bite. Took months and finally my doc was like “you’re always outside in an endemic area? Let’s test you” ..had a positive western blot
