NHS direct will say no if no temperature (though there's a small chance it still could be, though doesn't sound bad enough for any antivirals).
It may not matter whether it is or not though - the hospital may not want you visiting them to have a scan if you've anything infectious like even just a d&v bug, so you should mention it directly to them and see what they say, if you've still got symptoms.
symptoms sound similar to SF but hard to say we all had a temp with SF. Did you have a very sudden cough? The thing with SF is it tends to be very sudden I think in my experience, one minute you are not too bad the next you feel soooo poorly. But every case is different so hard to say.
Hope you are ok and get better soon, that's bad timing for you with the scan due. May be worth being checked over by a doc if possible with you having had a kidney infection as could be connected to that maybe?x
Feeling a little better today, i don't think it is sf as no temp and only slight cough, i feel like i have been hit by a bus and feel really sick but i felt like this with the kidney infection (maybe i have another infection). I'm going to go for the scan as i have waited a while to get an appointment and i want to rule out any kidney problems. If i still feel rough later a will phone my GP and get tested for kidney infection and ask about sf (if they let me in the surgery).
Not sure if it will help, but sounds like something I had last week. Sore throat, bit of a cough - general awful feeling and horrific nausea.. (had chemo years ago and know what nausea can be like!)
DD had had antivirals for SF and doctor prescribed me some but to be honest I wasn't convinced - think we both had a virus anyway it went as quick as it came, Friday couldn't move from sofa, Saturday felt fine? Overall lasted about 5 days.
Almost better here (just a nasty taste in my mouth that doesn't seem to go), Dh is now feeling ill and is ringing the SF helpline. The dd's havn't been ill and lets hope they don't get it. Still unsure if it is SF but i think dh is going to take tamiflu as it may stop the dd's getting it if it is SF.
we didn't but I know some people do get them. Think it's a case of weighing up carefully the pros and cons, depending on how convinced you are it's SF as SF can be v nasty in my experience but no point taking it for a 'normal' virus x
