Swine flu without a sore throat & cough?

Hello all.

Is it possible to have the swine flu without a sore throat and cough? I have all the other symptoms, but because I don't have a sore throat or cough I assumed it might be something else. However, I've never been so completely drained and weak like this from any flu virus I've had in the past and I was exposed to the swine flu by a co-worker who tested positive for the virus.

Thanks folks.

I was also diagnosed with the H1N1 last week and the cough is pretty significant. In fact, I was told it can last up to 3 weeks and it is a terrible cough. I didn't have a sore throat but for me and my husband the cough is staying strong.

I am hearing from all kinds of people that it affects them in different ways and it all depends on your immune system. Mainly this virus attacks your lungs.
