Re: Could i have swine or just plain old flu
Sounds like the flu, one or the other. Yes, the fever can come on after some of the other symptoms start. Also, the fever can continue for 4-5 days. Rest, take plenty of liquids and if things get worse, you will have to see someone.
As far as menopausal symptoms, you may have the sweats due to that but a fever of 99.6 or so will also cause the sweats. And, since you have the other symptoms, my guess is the flu, or whatever virus, is the cause.
