Apparently when you phone the NHS people and they ask you your symptoms there are 2 symptoms that people with just regular flu don't get that Swine Flu people get! (Maybe oinking and getting sunburnt easily!)
But there you go - they will then know if you have proper swine flu or just a bad cold or normal flu!
Disclaimer - this came from an associate of DH who he calls Fat Wanky Paul - so can't be sure just how accurate it is!
Think the list is sore throat, headache, dry cough, aching, lethargy, d&v, fever. If you have 2 or more they are presuming swine flu. Dd2 diagnosed yesterday after a horrid weekend. She si almost back to normal today.
Oh dear, so sorry to hear about your dh zebrastripes and your dd littlerach. It has now hit the school round the corner from us, (dd doesn't go there yet) so it is v close. I won't tell dh as he will have it immediately.
