I prolly have covid

I went to a field hospital yesterday and was tested. Chest x ray showed covid like light pneumonia. I am at home in quarantine from my family. They said go back to er if I get worse, I am stable now with a low fever on and off. I had back pain the first 3 days and thought it was a spasm and from my bronchitis.

My doc told me to go to the field hospital yesterday and said it is better to find out early and they are putting people on hydroxy chloroquine. But the doc at hospital said they will only put ypu on that if you are admitted. Then in a video visit today she said they only put you on it early on which I am not now apparently. I have been sick for 3 weeks now but the back pain for 3-4 days. And before that had a sinus infection that wouldn’t go away. So it doesn't make sense. I started z pack at home since I always have that at home. I am taking tylenol and lost of fluids etc. and rest and doing breathing exercises from a doc’s video in England. My test takes 2 days.
