I know it isnt possible to tell the swine flu symptoms from a regular one but for the last three days I have nasal congestion and runny nose which started off with a sore throat. I didnt have fever for the last 2 days but today I feel as if my temperature is around 99-100F.
I live in London and I havent been in contact with any of the confirmed swine flu cases ( or so I hope). Does anybody think it could be swine flu because I normally dont catch cold at this time of the year?
Thanks for sharing the information. I had sinusitis twice before but they were more severe than the cold I have now with my whole face aching as well as headache. But I guess the symptoms were more extreme since I had them during winter and now the weather is less unpleasant so I am probably having a milder one.
I will wait for a day or two and if by then I don't feel well I will ask my GP to prescribe antibiotics if needed.
