Re the low temp, it's interesting that the NY Times had an article today that 1 in 3 swine flu victims they tested had no fever. I'm guessing the numbers are even higher, and that people without a fever are less likely to get tested.
From the NY Times...
Many people suffering from swine influenza, even those who are severely ill, do not have fever, an odd feature of the new virus that could increase the difficulty of controlling the epidemic, said a leading American infectious-disease expert who examined cases in Mexico last week.
I'm not in a tick area, but I have had them before...quite nasty, but nothing like what I went through with this flu.
ETA...I've been vegetarian for years and don't eat fish, so not herring! I'm 95+% sure it was swine flu, particularly because of the tummy issues it caused me.
