Certain symptoms are more common and usually these are caused by your body trying to cure itself. Inflammation, fever, tiredness, stuffy nose etc. These are mostly your body reacting to the illness.

Certain symptoms are less common and may be directly caused by the illness.

Other symptoms might the the side effect of the medicines that are taken to cure the illness.

Even with the same illness, some people will experience different degrees of severity of each symptom because everyone’s body reacts differently to all the above causes.

If an illness is kinda similar to one that the immune system has already experienced, the effect on the body will be mild compared to a person who has zero experience with that pathogen. Even with the recent coronavirus, the usually respiratory distress sometimes presents as abdominal issues, at least initially.
