Is this Swine Flu? What would you do

This morning received a company wide e-mail that our office manager is off with Swine Flu.

Coincidentally I have been feeling a bit off. Very tired and cold in the past two days and this morning felt like a cold was coming down with a vague headache and sniffy nose.

To put my mind at rest that it wasn't SF, took my temperature and it said 38.3 which isn't massively high but means I can't have imagined it.

Since 9.00 am I now seem to have developped a bit of a sore throat and a bit of reflux. Temp now varies between 38.7 and 38.9 but really appart from feeling like I have a cold or headache I feel fine.

I have been actively TTC this month.

What do you think? Do I call the doctor or is he going to laugh at me. I don't really feel that bad and if I hadn't taken my temp I wouldn't have thought much of it.

Do I call the doctor? Do I get and take antiviral medication?

I am unsure as to what to do

Is it just a cold or do I have SF?

Thanks did it and it recommended I take antiviral drugs, but I don't want to take them unless I am absolutely 100% sure it is swine flu.

Called my doctor and he seems to think that my symptoms are not dramatic enough and that it might not be it.

I guess time will tell
