    I think its hard to establish Swine Flu from a Cold. If you're worried, go to your GP and get checked out

    Ideally yes. In the meantime a cup of coffee and the TV is your friend.

    Get well soon

    Either way it doesn't matter. Short of you having a non existant immune system, your body will fight it off.

    Swine flu, you're basically going to have severe symptoms of a regular flu. Of course it could just be a severe/ particularly bad rather than swine flu.

    NHS would have to take swabs and do these tests to distinguish it's swine flu for sure. But it's too expensive and too time consuming.


    So you won't really know if it's swine flu or not for sure.

    go to the doctor though. A lot of people don't think this, but more people actually die from normal flu than swine flu. If it's really bad, you should go and see a doctor anyway.

    I wouldn't worry either way, influenza's have a relatively low mortality rate.
