Those are all symptoms of swine flu but my understanding is that fever is involved as well. It also seems to last a bit longer than regular flu. Where I live the regular flu hasn't hit yet so people are told that if they have the flu it is the swine flu. Don't know if that applies to your area. Hope you are feeling better soon! smile
