Well I have developed a sore throat that is pretty well sore... Its red and swollen looking at it and its difficult to swallow and eat. I have had a minor cough due to allergies for the last week or so. So thats not what's bugging me. Last night I developed a stiff neck but its not stiff up and down its more side to side, I have also had a headache, fever, chills, leg aches, swollen glands in my neck, and a little vertigo upon standing. I generally just feel as if I am sick. It feels like maybe I have the flu or strep, but my co-workers are freaking me out with the "swine flu" pandemic that is going on. I currently live in Missouri where no cases have been documented of this. I will be visiting the doctor as soon as I can get in but my question now is does this just sound like the regular flu, or maybe strep? I don't really want to get all freaky over nothing. Thanks all!
