My mum works at the national virus lab in scotland and they are doing all the testing for piggy flu. 90% of the samples they get from panicking GP's are just colds.

Never heard of that one, but I've been shifting tonnes of Tamiflu around the globe for the last year or so - should have nicked a couple of packs !!

Dont over-react mate,its probably a bit of a summer cold..... you'll know when you're swined up to the eyeballs....... you wont be able to post ! :w00t:

I had a cold and runny nose this week... was infectious too.. can tell by the colour of the flemm!

2 days later.. and its gone!!! no medicine.... just boiled moong.. with lemon and a lil salt

vicks vapour rub to clear the airwaves and nose.

seek medical care if needed though.. swine flu is over rated. They say if America sneezes .. the world catches a cold..... heres the sneeze!

My colleague's daughter from work had the swine flu, all she got was a sore throat....

Im full of cold at the moment.....runny nose, sore throat, slight temperature......but thats all it is, a summer cold. I could get myself 10 days off work if I rang in and said I had swine flu.......but Im not gonna

have an awful chesty cough croaky voice and headaches atm.

it's going round peeps x x

yeah I was loaded with a proper summer cold a few weeks back. Everyone was trying to get me to go to the doc. Really pointles I though I knew it was just a cold. I've had the flu twice before belive me I'd know if I got it again :lol:

The best part is when you try to sleep. You lie on your side and one nostril starts to clear and you think, champion, thats better. Then you end up with double the snot flowing out the other nostril, flowing down your cheek and soaking into your pillow, lush.

Yep that's why this blokes daughter from work only got a sore throat as a symptom? :thinking: maybe it's YOU two spreading it around, you know if you kill someone as a result of your recklessness that's manslaughter.

:roll:

thats just crazy! How did that blokes daughter know she had swine flu? with just a sore throat most GPs would turff you out. Besides I followed the flow chart on the nhs24 web site and it told me I had a cold

besides if what I had was swine flu I'm bitterly disapointed there is no way on this planet what I had could kill anyone. It was a cold pure and simple!

They had a woman turn up in a gas mask and a bib to give them tamiflu after they came round to take a swab, I guess their doctors surgery was being extra cautious. Must have freaked the neighbours out no end. Either way yeah just a sore throat and the parents didn't catch it
