“Good Morning America” co-anchor Amy Robach said she had back pain.

  • She thought it was from her daily runs. But, days later, the symptoms wouldn’t wear off. Soon enough, she learned she had tested positive for COVID-19.

Why this matters: The omicron variant — and COVID-19 in general — can sneak up on people and infect them without them knowing they’re sick.

The omicron variant doesn’t lead to ‘classic three’ COVID-19 symptoms
This omicron variant symptom is easy to miss

Details: The Jerusalem Post recently published a list of symptoms that might have been signs you had COVID-19 without even knowing you were sick. Here’s the quick list, but you can check out The Jerusalem Post to see a deeper dive into the symptoms.

  • You were sick but you didn’t get tested for COVID-19.
  • You thought you had the flu, but it was really coronavirus and flu together.
  • Your hair is falling out in large quantities.
  • Your family got sick.
  • You had some stomach issues.
  • You had an eye infection.
  • You had a strange rash or infection on your toes.

One note to go: Some of the most common omicron variant symptoms don’t always align with the “classic three” COVID-19 symptoms (which are considered new cough, fever and loss or change to taste and smell), as I reported for the Deseret News.

  • Those unique symptoms included: headaches, night sweats, and vomiting and loss of appetite, as I reported for the Deseret News.
