I thought I would post this now as if I do have the h1N1 I might not feel like posting later. Long story short, I live and work in one of the first
areas in Texas to have confirmed cases of swine flu. So last Monday, I awoke with a sore throat. It got rapidly worse throughout the day, and although
I was combating it with heavily salted water gargle, it stayed sore until Wednesday, upon which the noticeable pain had gone, and I now felt the
tickling of an infection that had moved down further into my chest.
Today things started to get worse, I now have aches in my joints, and a slight fever, along with a runny nose, and a pretty bad hacking cough. It is
not so much full of phlegm just yet, but I'm guessing it will be shortly.
So, I have decided to post this to see if anyone else m,ight be getting these same symptoms. I had the flu about 12-15 years ago, and I believe it was
the Sydney variant back then. That one nearly killed me, and symptoms wewre much, much, worse. I seem to recall that flu's symptoms came on much
So, anyone else in the Central Texas Area having the same symptoms? And if this turns out to be H1N1, could it have mutated into a less virulent form?
