Dh has a nasty sounding cough,sore throat and headache.I have just been into him with pain killers and a drink.He said his legs and ribs are acheing.
Do you think this is just man flu or could it be swine flu?
Help i'm worried but not sure if i sould be.

Has he got a temperature?

I've got ds (3yrs) on the sofa barely moving, unable to talk, sounds like a seal barking when he coughs. He has a high fever (39.8 with calpol). He's refusing to eat or drink at all. I called the flu line and after answering a pile of questions they gave me a number to get tamiflu but because of him not able to talk and the cough being so bad they told me to call the surgery. Done that and I have to take him to the gp this afternoon.

Sounds like it. DD2 is on day five now and the temp is gone but she is still barking away like a seal. Pain killers, drink and sleep are the best things for it IMO.
