Seriously, the way people are acting towards it you'd swear the swine flu will cause a zombie outbreak. It has the same symptoms of any other flu and with more serious **** like AIDS/HIV and TB killing millions each year, we are worried about a new flu? If you want to look at a humorous yet true article on the swine flu, click the link i have provided. Read it and you will see evidence that this is overhyped media crap.

Just because it has become an airborne thing, doesn't mean you got it from california. Maybe you're just unsanitary.

"There's nothing we've seen so far that shows that this influenza is different than any other influenza," said University of Washington epidemiologist Ira Longini, a nationally-recognized scholar who has made a career out of studying the flu.

"It's just another flu virus," Longini said. But he added: the flu can kill.

In an average flu season, 36,000 Americans die from the flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control. And between 5 to 20 percent of all Americans get the flu.

Chances are, you don't have it. Do you have a fever? I thought I had the swine flu because i had the symptoms, but ended up having nemonia. Go to the doctor and ask to take a blood test.

don't worry.
the symptoms are very similar to a regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. A significant number of people who have been infected with this virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting. Also, like seasonal flu, severe illnesses and death has occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus.

drink a lot of liquid and ventilate your room.

if you see the symptoms after 4 or 5 days you should go to your doctor.

and is just like any flu but your body don't knows it, and we don't have antibodies to fight it.

if you had the swine flu you wouldnt be able to get up and you would be puking A LOT

you might just have a NORMAL flu.....

go to the doctor, but know that:
1) panicking makes you more likely to get swine flu because panicking messes up your immune system
2) you most likely have a cold or the regular flu
3) swine flu isn't really that bad in the United States because we have such a sanitary country

The symptoms of swine flu are broadly the same as those of ordinary flu, but may be more severe and cause more serious complications.

The typical symptoms are:

sudden fever, and
sudden cough.
Other symptoms may include:

headache,
tiredness,
chills,
aching muscles,
limb or joint pain,
diarrhoea or stomach upset,
sore throat,
runny nose,
sneezing, and
loss of appetite.
If the flu becomes pandemic, potentially, everyone is at risk because few people, if any at all, will have immunity (resistance) to it.

If you have any of these symptoms but a flu pandemic has not been announced, you could have seasonal flu.

Swine Flu...
Right then listen
I thought i MIGHT have had it the other day.
And dude dont worry. If you panic, it'll make you feel worse.

Right.
If you are a Baby or really Old then theres a chance you should worry
If not, and you are a middle age,with no weak immune system
You wont die.
They only died in mexico bceause its where it originated
Everyone outside of mexico have a mild form of swine which your immune system will fight. So final outline is, Dont worry.

What is the swine flu?

The swine influenza A (H1N1) virus that has infected humans in the U.S. and Mexico is a novel influenza A virus that has not previously been identified in North America. This virus is resistant to the antiviral medications amantadine (Symmetrel) and rimantadine (Flumadine), but is sensitive to oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza). Investigations of these cases suggest that on-going human-to-human swine influenza A (H1N1) virus is occurring.




What are the symptoms of swine flu?

Although uncomplicated influenza-like illness (fever, cough or sore throat) has been reported in many cases, mild respiratory illness (nasal congestion, rhinorrhea) without fever and occasional severe disease also has been reported. Other symptoms reported with swine influenza A virus infection include vomiting, diarrhea, myalgia, headache, chills, fatigue, and dyspnea. Conjunctivitis is rare, but has been reported. Severe disease (pneumonia, respiratory failure) and fatal outcomes have been reported with swine influenza virus infection. The potential for exacerbation of underlying chronic medical conditions or invasive bacterial infection with swine influenza A virus infection should be considered.



How can swine (H1N1) flu be prevented?

The best way to prevent swine flu would be the same best way to prevent other influenza infections, and that is vaccination. When a safe vaccine is developed (projected to happen in a few months), people should get vaccinated if the disease is still causing infections. The CDC says that a good way to prevent any flu disease is to avoid exposure to the virus; this is done by frequent hand washing, not touching your hands to your face (especially the nose and mouth), and avoiding any close proximity to or touching any person that may have flu symptoms. Since the virus can remain viable and infectious for about 48 hours on many surfaces, good hygiene and cleaning with soap and water or alcohol-based hand disinfectants are also recommended. Some physicians say face masks may help prevent getting airborne flu viruses (for example, from a cough or sneeze), but others think the better use for masks would be on those people who have symptoms and sneeze or cough. The use of Tamiflu or Relenza may help prevent the flu if taken before symptoms develop or reduce symptoms if taken within about 48 hours after symptoms develop. However, taking these drugs is not routinely recommended for prevention because investigators suggest that as occurs with most drugs, flu strains will develop resistance to these medications. Your doctor should be consulted before these drugs are prescribed.

In general, preventive measures to prevent the spread of flu are often undertaken by those people who have symptoms. Symptomatic people should stay at home, avoid crowds, and take off from work or school until the disease improves or medical help is sought. Sneezing, coughing, and nasal secretions need to be kept away from other people; simply using tissues and disposing of them will help others. Quarantining patients is usually not warranted, but such measures depend on the severity of the disease.


ShortBoy
first of all. You are only 16. So what does your parents think?. Have them take you to the doctor. Second many mexicans travel from mexico to california. It could be early symptoms of the Swine flu. But normally the Flu includes symptoms of body aches. You didn't mention that.So it may not be. But i would go see a doctor for testing. until then wash your hand frequently, cover your mouth when coughing, and sneezing. stay home and ovoid contact with others until you are cleared. when you leave your home, wear a mask.

swine flu has been overblown by the media. it happened in 1976, and nothing actually happened then, ,like nothing will happen now.

I think you probably dont have to Swine flu. Also i think the reason people died in Mexico is because they dont have the medical resources we have here. So dont freak out i think your okay! but if it gets worse see a doctor


Jokerrr
see a doctor and quick! have u been touching a lot of things recently then touched your face? if so, be careful. see a doctor now

Well, the good news is the CDC says they're encouraged that swine flu isnt spreading as fast as they thought. Hoping you should B OK.


Cal Mitch
Probably just a cold. I hate the media lol. Remember bird flu? And everyone thought they had bird flu and it was nothing. Swine Flu is nothing compared to what the media are making it into. It's bs to be honest.


Alli
I have the same thing, its not swine, its just another cold


JonasLoverBabii2
you should probably get tested, just to be safe.


emomuzic
