Have been unwell for 2 days- started with a runny nose, lots of sneezing and sore nasal passages, then quickly got a temp- but not raging , and aches and pains. Went to bed yesterday afternoon feeling awful, and now got up and slightly better but still feel whacked. Little appetite except for cakes and unhealthy sweet stuff. Swollen glands in neck. Not able to work, as get hot and sweaty at anything except sitting at pc!
My son- adult but living at home- had what we think was SW a few weeks back and me and DH felt we had a very mild dose then, so that makes me think THIS is NOt it.
Am I missing any of the most crucial symtpoms of SW?
Really hard to tell. Does it feel like flu? Whatever it is, it sounds rotten so treat yourself as if you do have it - don't share it with others, don't try and be a hero and battle through the symptoms. Lots of rest, fluids and temp reducing meds as neccessary.
