The symptoms for swine flu can be just as normal as any other flu with a slight to heavy fever, runny nose and stuffed up head. The problem here is that these symptoms can be related to any other normal house hold variety flu which is why the danger of spreading the H1N1 swine flu is so great. Last year the swine flu pandemic increased the overall number of people effected however this year in 2010 there have been only a few cases of the flu world wide in considering 2009. Some hospitals are showing false negative results which can mean that the flu strand is changing into something else which is going to cause problems later down the track.
This is the time of year that we need to start worrying about the cold weather ahead and prepare to keep ourselves safe from the flu. Even with the swine flu vaccine in place the shortage of the vaccine makes the flu just as dangerous as it was several years before. Generally if you are suffering from a high fever, headache, fatigue, dry cough, sore throat, muscle pain, nausea or irregular toilet habits there is a chance that you have been infected with the swine flu. If you feel these symptoms taking control of your body then it is important to get to a local hospital or doctor so that you can be treated immediately and increase your chance of survival. The swine flu does not take the life of every person it infects however doing nothing about your symptoms will cause you to increase the dangerous risk.
