id go to the drs to be safe but it might be phsycosematics or a regular flu

Maybe you should tell your parents and they should take you to the doctor.
I don't think they have the symptoms of the sickness yet...

Go have yourself checked out at the hospital...
they'll give you the best answer their...
as far as the symptoms...
they are the same as for the regular flu.


connie
no....its probably something else.....


snowyƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
go to the doc

nope you dont have the SWINE FLU none of your symptoms match the SWINE FLU to be safe, be protected This includes frequent washing of hands with soap and water or with alcohol-based hand sanitizers, especially after being out in-public. People should avoid touching their mouth, nose or eyes with their hands unless they've washed their hands. If people do cough, they should either cough into a tissue and throw it in the garbage immediately, cough into their elbow, or, if they cough in their hand, they should wash their hands immediately!


CJ
the short answer...no.
There have been a handful (like clusters of 2 or 3) out of 300 plus million people in this country that allegedly may have this flu. And thats all it is. The flu. Any virus can kill. Here in the US (unlike mexico) we have first rate medical care, so its treated ASAP and the risk of death, if you have no other health issues, is next to nothing even if you beat the incredible odds and somehow get it.

To put it simply, you have a much better chance of winning the california lottery this week than you do of getting the swine flu. A MUCH better chance.

So, go buy a lottery ticket and relax!

I too, was worried about getting the swine flu since its in Ohio as well.

Here's a short informational article that covers up your question...
http://www.medicinenet.com/swine_flu/article.htm

I also recently watched this youtube video which also was imformative.

Hope I helped! ^___^ (lets also hope we dont get it...O__O;)

ok. first off all chill! then call your doctor. do not! repeat do not leave your house. just call and see what he can tell you to do & explain in detail the symptoms of this virus [he is the doctor]. anyway i think lots a people are overreacting & thinking they all of a sudden have it.


fabi0
na thats bcuz u dont eat well i was like that 2 and then i satrted trying to eat more i didnt feel those diseases if u had it it wouldfeel like if u wanna throwup


~♫♥Human Bean♥♫~
the signs are that your head hurts alot and other crap ( i don't remember them). but it depends on how long you've had it. it is being said that by the third day youre dying. if it gets worse go to the doc. but i don't think u have SWINE FLU maybe its something else thats not as serious as swine flu.


Carol
Oh my gosh im 16 and I have the flu right now I went to the er this morning they injected me with all these meds it felt better but now that I am home i feel worse my symptoms are I had a red throat and my head hurts I can barely walk my whole body is sore my nose is plugged up and i have nausea and vomiting I feel soooo horrible they gave pseudoephedeine 60mg I feel sick still I have not eaten anything im not hungry and I am drinking tea and a lot of water but I feel like im going to die!!!

You probably don't have it there are 239,340,000 people living in America estimated. And only around 25 people have gotten it. And yes it is scary but look at the odds. You probably feel like that because you think you have it. A.K.A your mind is playing tricks on you. Hope my info helped. And if this becomes a pandemic many people will get it but less people will die. Around about 200,000 will die IF IT BECOMES A PANDEMIC! We have good medicines. Don't be worried. YOUR WELCOME!


coke_1896
This link can help determine if you have the swine flu (I think that's what you're taking about).

http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/swineflu_you.htm

Dizziness and feeling like you're about to faint are not listed as symptoms, but headaches are. Read the article and it may answer your questions.

EDIT: Headaches may also be caused by a number of reasons (hunger, stress, etc.)

It may also be allergies. It's that time of year...

What are swine flu symptoms?

Symptoms of swine flu are like regular flu symptoms and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu. Those symptoms can also be caused by many other conditions, and that means that you and your doctor can't know, just based on your symptoms, if you've got swine flu. It takes a lab test to tell whether it's swine flu or some other condition.

If I think I have swine flu, what should I do? When should I see my doctor?

If you have flu symptoms, stay home, and when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. Afterward, throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. That will help prevent your flu from spreading.

If you've got flu symptoms, and you've recently been to a high-risk area like Mexico, CDC officials recommend that you see your doctor. If you have flu symptoms but you haven't been in a high-risk area, you can still see a doctor -- that's your call.

Keep in mind that your doctor will not be able to determine whether you have swine flu, but he or she would take a sample from you and send it to a state health department lab for testing to see if it's swine flu. If your doctor suspects swine flu, he or she would be able to write you a prescription for Tamiflu or Relenza. Those drugs may not be required; U.S. swine flu patients have made a full recovery without it.

No it just feels like a normal flu [throwing up, nausia, dissynes, ect.] just be clean so you don't get the real thing. Even if you were to get the real thing, all you do is go to the doctor and hang out at your house. [Trust me, my spanish teacher told us all about the sickness today and he's from Mexico City and he said it mostly is only dangerous to really young kids and old people] But you don't have it.


CHEEKY AMERICAN
do you have a fever? do you feel like throwing up? i'm not sure of the exact signs of the "swine" flu, but i've had the flu before. you feel so dizzy you can't even get up, walk around or understand where you are, you're stomach hurts loads and you'd throw up anything you eat, it makes you sick to even think of eating. and yeah like i said a fever, but you'd feel very cold.


Cubejam
Okay huge rant but ill give you the symptoms.

The symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of other strains of human flu, including fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. A few patients have reported that they also suffered from diarrhea and vomiting.

The Swine flu outbreak has spread further than Southern and Northern America, It has reached Spain, UK, New Zeland, Australia.

It spreads virally so you breathe it in, You'll be fine as long as you dont come in contact with any one with Swine Flu.


Erudite
The best way to find out is going to the doctor.
If you are having fever, cough, or weakness i recommend to go to the hospital.


Woahbuddy91
Chill out. You think too much. Its probably mostly in your head. your probably going to be fine =)


alliellamacake(:
the symptoms of the swine flu are fever, vomiting, chills, exhaustion, and aches. Most likely, you don't have it. To avoid it, cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, frequently wash your hands, don't touch a lot of dirty surfaces, and don't eat or drink after others. And yes, the swine flu did originate in Mexico and spread to other countries. It is already here and I think there have been only about a dozen cases of people having it so far. If you still think you have it, visit your doctor.

I think what you have is called hypochondriasis.


ShG
Dont worry, there are a few things that could happen besides the flu. Now my question would really be to you is when did these things start, but if I could guess probably yesterday, a week. Well I live in southern California, actually I am pretty experienced and I believe that it could be some sort of reaction to our off and on weather. Now in the deserts of California it has been a subsidiary change in weather and even if you do not have a history of such types of headaches the heat was pretty severe a few days ago and I think the anxiety of the flu may be also bringing you body down. Now if that isn't correct you are probably reading this and say, "No! No! God I'll never know! Ah!" well I think I have another hypothesis. Next, food, lack of food or water. Lastly your body could be fighting anything at this point so maybe because of your anxiety, or mood or physical health it could be straining your body. Hope I help! :) Good luck!


raspberryph
people like you are the reason why the World Health Organization rarely does this, they don't want all of the hypochondriacs of society overflowing the hospitals and wasting doctors time. When you are running a fever and have real flu symptoms then call your personal doctor or family doctor and make an appointment. Don't attribute to paranoia, it only slows things down in assisting the truly sick people, and thus stopping it from spreading. Calm down.


Amen, Nacho Grande!

you're overreacting.
you most likely don't have it, and thinking about it constantly is giving you a headache.
chill out.

Symptoms of the swine flu are mainly a sore throat and fever. Swine flu may give headaches, but those are later symptoms following the fever and a burning throat sensation. Also look for signs of debilitation of the muscles including sore spots and overall weakening.
