    SWINE FLU!?

    I don't know what to do. I got a sore throat last night but at the time I thought it was because I had eaten too many crisps and they had been a bit harsh on the throat. Woken up with a runny nose. Haven't got a fever and I don't geel tired or anything...I just went shopping.

    Have I got a cold? Or Swine flu?

    Give it a couple of days and see if you feel any better. Otherwise I'd call your GP.

    You thought that eating too many crisps had given you flu sypmtoms?

    I keep saying this to people time and time again: there's no need to be calm, you almost certainly have swine flu and if you don't run and make a big scene to your GP, you will almost certainly perish.

    You probably just gave a really good blowjob and the goods shot up your nose.

    I've feel nauseous, dodgy stomach, headache, sore throat, hot one minute, cold the next, glands are swollen, sneezing occasionally, exhausted. I'm flying to the States on Thursday! Doctor just thinks it's just a virus. Hang on, Swine Flu is a virus. Will keep taking the paracetamol.

    wait a day or two before going to the GP, you don't have a fever yet and a high temp is the major thing that they look for when diagnosing swine flu

    Wouldn't bother going. If you have got it and you go, you're gonna pass it on to more people, and the GP will tell you to do whta you do for normal flu. You now only get Tamiflu if you have a pre-existing medical condition that could cause complications.

    i've had a bad throat and cold for a couple of days now.. i've even lost my voice.. i think the ol' cough-cold thing is going around anyway.. i don't reckon you have swine flu since you don't state that you feel "fluey".. just relax for a couple of days and you'll be fine

    Everyone with a mild cold thinks they have swine flu, I'm sure you will be fine but get a lot of rest and search for symptons of swine flu, check you don't have them.

    Wait a few days to see how it goes. If symptoms get worse (ie fever, headache, nausea, diarrhoea) or persist DON'T GO TO SEE YOUR GP - call them instead.
