    o wow, thats is not good. umm have you looked up all the symptoms and compared it to what your feeling. hopefully you just have like something small like a stomach bug, well i mean hopefully you have nothing lol but you know what im saying

    They advise you not to go, as it'll just spread the infection to others, which makes sense, from a medical point of view, hence why the authorities (the NHS, in the UK anyway), are saying that you should have 'flu-buddies', who can pick up your medication for you etc.

    That said, if you have it from a party - no offence, but could it be that you are perhaps a bit worse for wear through drink / food / lack of sleep, or it could just be a bad cold?

    well i have had a hangover before, and i wasn't all that drunk coz.. well alcohol does affect me all that much anymore.. and there wasn't any food there :/ i am hoping it's something else but i have a few of the symptoms which isn't great :(
    i am a bit of a hypochondriac though, so i guess i'll have to see. for now, i think i need to sleep because my head feels as though it's going to implode

    But folks, don't worry too much it's not that bad. It's like a normal flu for "healthy" people, just slightly worse.

    But for younger people, children, elderly and weak people, it might be very bad I should add.

    Laura, I had it and so did my Mum. We got Tamiflu and now we're both fine.
    Try not to worry too much hun. The Doctors are saying to call them and then ask someone who is well to go to the chemist and get you the Tamiflu and then if you still feel really bad after the course of it, go to A&E.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    I had it. It wasn't the worst flu ever. I was kinda amused that I was one of a few hundred in my city of millions to get it.

    I think I've got it.

    Last 4 days I have served over 1000 people in an store of which a lot like to cough in your face, some even tell you they have had swine flu:wink:

    Last night I got a temperature. I woke up this morning still with that temperature. I have a slight cough, which I assumed was asthma caused by hayfever, but it isn't because the inhaler does not work. Also I have that throat thing you get when you have a cold/flu.

    I think I may be at the very early stages, i hope i dont get it bad, i am going away for the day this Saturday, i hope it isn't bad by then :(



    What medicine's shall i take now, early stages to fight it off before it becomes worse?

    hey hache, i hope youhaven't got it
    i had those sort of symptoms, headache, sore throat, fever, sickness, the usual for flu really... but this morning, i took a couple of vitamin tablets and had some orange juice and the symptoms have lessened a lot.
    so i'm guessing i don't have it.. probably just had a bad cold or a virus or something

    :hug: hope you're okay xx
