    Last night, at about 8pm I was unusualy tired (I was actually falling asleep). That day I woke up the same time as previous days and normally I'm that tired by midnight.

    All night I was boiling hot, but I just ignored it...you know when you're asleep and you just want to keep dreaming. So I just woke up at 10 (very late for me) and I started trembling all over, my heart was pounding (tachycardic (sp?) and icouldnt breathe.

    So I took my inhaler and now i can breathe. But every time I stand up, my head goes all fuzzy, my vision goes blurry round the edges and I will fall over from dizziness if I don't hold onto something. I'm still trembling.

    I haven't been my GP (I have no way of getting there except walking for an hour) because I've had this heart pounding diziness before and he said it's just asthma, I should take my inhaler.

    Idk, is this a symptom of swine flu or something? I've been feeling like this for an hour.

    Does sound bit like the flu, I've felt boiling hot in bed before, but this is usually down to the weather. Best get it checked out

    Sounds like you have a fever. Can be a symptom of flu but could be a symptom of other things. Drink plenty of fluids and have something to eat, might help your light-headedness.

    If I was being stupid I'd have said it was early signs of the plague.

    The tiredness may be linked to glandular fever?

    Phone up the swine flu helpline/NHS Direct to see what they say.

    It could be flu, but when did you last eat/drink? It could also just be dehydration and low bp (which would make you dizzy standing up - postural hypotension) because of the dehydration. Maybe?
