I want to give you information on the symptoms of swine flu, and what to do if you think you've got it.
Swine flu is just like normal flu, carries many of the same symptoms. The two main symptoms of Swine Flu are a sudden fever (a body temperature of 38 degrees Celsius/ 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above) and a sudden cough. Other symptoms often include headache, sore throat, tiredness, runny nose, chills, sneezing, aching muscles, loss of apitite, limb or joint pain, and diarrhea or stomach upset.
If you or a loved one are showing any two or more of the symptoms above,
please DO NOT go to the doctors.
Phone the National Swine flu Pendemic Serivce on 0800 15 13 513 or visit the governments pandemic flu website. They'll asses your symptoms and let you know if you've got Swine Flu and let you know what to do next.
I hope you found this informative.
