I didnt have a blood test - so of course its possible I didnt have swine flu. My symptoms do match though and Ive been in contact with a couple of people who had been diagnose too, although I dont know if they had blood tests or not.
Im in Australia so its winter and Im also in an area which has had a high rate of SF.
Basically I went to the Dr to get a medical certificate to cover some time Id taken off of work, I dont go to Drs generally.
I had one night where I felt a little unwell - runny nose, aching in the chest etc, followed by a morning of gastro. Prior to that though I had spent a week or so complaining about my aching muscles and blaming it on the apparent hot and cold temperature changes at my work place. It didnt occur to me that it could be fever and I thought the aching was due to some pulled some muscles or something lol. Aside from that I felt fine except about a week later I had an evening of dizzyness and nausea, and here and there since Ive noticed an almost asthma type feeling in my chest still.
Im not worried - I agree about the vaccinations
