Symptoms of Swine Flu? I wonder what they are. Obviously a sore throat and fever.
I went into the surgery this morning to book an appointment with the nurse for a routine blood test in a couple of weeks. The first thing I was asked was did I have a sore throat - "yes, I often have one during summer". It's caused by a post nasal drip due to hay fever.
Did I have a fever? "How would I know with all these hot flushes I keep getting? "
I managed to make an appointment. If I should end up catching swine flu I now know there is no point in calling in to the surgery to see a doctor. The waiting room and all the local chemists have huge notices telling us to stay at home if we have swine flu. Don't go to the surgery.
I thought all us 60+ year olds were supposed to be immune from it. Perhaps I don't 'look' 60.
