I started to come down with similar symptoms, feeling very hot, then cold. This went on all day until I took some oil of oregano. I feel as if whatever was trying to take hold, was stopped in it's tracks. I have no idea if it was swine flu or regular seasonal. I honestly have not had the flu since 1998.


I had "something". Could not speak, felt like a flat board had hit the left side of my head.

Took oil of oregano(not for young children or pets!) 5 drops in a half glass of water 5x the first day, a couple times the next. Then some licorice herb on the second day to help me sleep. When I got up it was gone.

Have installed full spectrum lights in the entire house. May help with the natural Vitamin D.

Those big bottles of black elderberry extract seem inviting. From Montana or someplace like that.

Good luck with getting over the bug, I had it a few months ago and was the best thing that ever happened to me, due to the cough and crappy feelings I managed to quit smoking for the first time in my life without patches or gum, I havent smoked in 4 months now and dont get any craving so if it is man made then thanks big pharma
I think it is not anything to be worried about however I dont know what the winter months may hold, a mutation could become nasty

Yea I'm sure it was me too and I still stick by it. If it was normal flu I wouldn't have contracted the bug in the first place. And if it were normal flu, and I happened to have contracted it... normally I would've licked it no problem in a couple days. I contracted a severe flu, and while it feels like the majority of it is over, that doesn't mean I am feeling 100%. I still feel like crap, but I feel better today than I did yesterday... which is the first time that has happened in a week. For 7 days straight I felt worse and worse and worse. I do not have a thermometer at my apartment, because I would've loved to see what my temp was last night, I am sure it was 100+.

This thing is nasty. Now to see if any of my friends, family or coworkers come down with it. I know one at my work is presenting nearly the same symptoms starting at nearly the same time point.

Drink water, drink water, drink water - that is all I can say. It has many reasons you have to do that - not gonna list all of them, the most important is getting the toxins out. I would do 3-5g of vitamin C spread over the day.

Report back.

Remember - drink water.

previous posts have nothing to do with it. the only relevant stuff i post here is in this forum, the rest took place usually drunk or at 3am.

and for saying im disinfo and fear mongering i really hope you have to go through the absolute # i just did for a week and see how much disinfo and fear mongering it is then. i just happen to know what the hell im talking about just like the thousand other people at the CDC and WHO that are screaming the same thing. dont listen to us and when you and yours come down with these symptoms, I hope your doc tells you that you are just fear mongerimg

Are you sure that was you I thought it was me but there were alot of us. I was going by the handle blc4r4 at the time I had the bad stuff to twice aprox 20 days apart and I am another who rarely gets sick. And I stand by all that I have posted you dont want this bug but if you get the bad strain go with the naturals they will work.

I hope you feel better. I should especially becareful with the Swine Flu thing because I'm diagnosed with Asthma. The worst time for my asthma attacks are in the late fall and spring time frame. I'm checking to see how the Costa Rica president is doing, he has asthma as well and the Swine Flu, so I'm using it as a future reference to know what to expect.

As with other influenza viruses, this virus typically attacks the respiratory tract. So if you have a chronic respiratory condition like asthma, it can take a turn for the worse, exacerbating your asthma."

While people with asthma or other chronic lung conditions are at a higher risk for developing complications from influenza, it is important to be attentive to the presence of symptoms but not to panic. Catching the symptoms early is key because the antiviral drugs used to combat swine flu are most effective if started as soon as possible, and might not work if administered more than 48 hours after becoming ill.

The symptoms of swine flu include fever, tiredness, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with the virus have also reported a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Swine Flu, Asthma and Australia
Posted on June 16th, 2009 by Amy
Some new information has come out on swine flu and asthma recently, and although it affects those in the southern hemisphere more than my part of the world right now, I’m signal-boosting for everyone because it contains some good information.

Namely, the National Asthma Council Australia has issued a flu alert for all the asthma sufferers on the continent. The group was motivated to do so by this New York report showing 80% of swine flu hospitalizations in that city occurred because of underlying medical conditions, with asthma the highest risk factor at 41%.

Those numbers, along with the fact that Australians and other southern hemisphere folks are entering the typical winter cold and flu season - which already carries higher risks for asthmatics even without a pandemic - are prompting the alert, which recommends this preventative step:

Whether you are sick or not - if you have asthma and have not seen your GP in the last six months it is important you make an immediate appointment with your doctor to check the functioning and health of your lungs. Check with your GP that you are prescribed the right treatment, that you can use your inhaler correctly and that your current lung function is good. If this is all in order and you have a written asthma action plan that will guide you through any deterioration, you should be confident that you are prepared for a potentially difficult winter flu season,” said Associate Professor Matthew Peters, Respiratory Physician, Head of Respiratory Medicine at Concord Hospital, Sydney. - National Asthma Council Australia

That strikes me as excellent advice for those of us in the middle of summer, too. The time to check up on my daughter’s lung function and fine hone her maintenance and action plans is now, in June, before we enter the fall cold and flu season in the middle of a pandemic. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m making an appointment for AG sooner rather than later.

How are you positive it's H1N1 without a diagnosis. Also a girl at my work came down with the flu a week ago, I work at a nursing home and she was able to see a doctor get medication and had to wear a respirator for a few days for "precautionary" reasons. I strongly doubt you a "I forget your title", couldn't be seen by a doctor when this girls on State healthcare. Your story has holes my friend, thats all I'm saying and o by the way hers lasted for 2 weeks, was the regular flu and she claims to be like you usually healthly. Think your jumping the gun.

Was my intial thought, thanks for the reineration. Hard to believe the bs he's spilling if his "title" was really correct. Come on I know people on Welfare that get to see the doctor, this stinks and looks like swiss cheese.

Good Luck Buddy! I figured when this virus was rumored to be in my area I would do the Vitamin D3 thing as a preventative (not a cure if you already have it). The thing that pisses me off is your visit to the Doctors Office, makes me think this clown wants you to become a statistic so he can sell a ton of flu shots.

I can tell the fever is starting to make me a tad disoriented (it was hard to drive to pick up more gatorade).



If you are sick ... STAY HOME!

Couldn't ya' get someone to pick it up for you and leave it at your door or something?

Vitamin D might just be one of the most important weapons in the arsenal against flu and other 'bugs'. Watch this vid a few times:


The only true way to get vitamin D, is from the sun. Any food that has vitamin D in it, it has been placed there.

I am so tempted to tell all the poor dazed looking fat people I see to visit endocrinologists.


I am one of those " poor dazed looking fat people" I cut out all the carbohydrates. I now eat salad and protein (meat and nuts) I lost 20 lbs in a month and I feel great. I find that even the amount of carbs in 1/4 of a raw carrot is enough to make me "dazed" A side benefit is my blood pressure dropped from 168/146 to 114/69.

I agree with everyone else. Stay hydrated and use steam to loosen the congestion. A hot toddy: Whiskey, lemon and honey before bed helps too. If nothing else it will help you sleep.

I used to get Pneumonia or Bronchitis almost every winter, then my brother-in-law suggested Emergen-C and ZiCam when exposed to a person who is sick or at the first sign of a scratchy throat. I haven't had a cold or the flu since and its been six years.

Good luck with that flu

I just said I am not 100% certain, but very certain it is H1N1. I know the ins and outs of viral infections pretty well, especially those of RNA viruses, its basically what I have been working on for 5 or so years now.

I know what the particular signs and symptoms are (traditionally) for the Hand N combination. I know the tell tale signs of the H1N1 1918 bug, and I have had multiple briefings from the CDC about the 2009 H1N1 strain.

A person was diagnosed with it not too long ago at my employer. A colleague of mine came down with the exact same symptoms the same day I did, and was diagnosed with it as well.

Koch's postulate applies.

Therefore, I am pretty sure that I have H1N1.

Sorry if not everything in my original post(s) were exactly as I had meant them. I had a horrible fever at the time and it was later in the night. I also stated that I was borderline delirious and could barely drive a car.

I saw the same doc for a possible hernia. I understand for one man to check another man for a hernia can be uncomfortable, but basically, I sat in the room, he walked in and asked if I thought I had a hernia... I said yes, and he referred me to a general surgeon. Didn't physically check me out, ask about signs etc. I'm new to this area, so I haven't been able to check out a new doc yet, this one is just at the end of my street.

I do not understand what you guys' problem is. I'm near damn sure it was H1N1, and I was incredibly sick for 7 days. I wouldn't make that up for sympathy, I have a life. I figured as someone who is in the field, and is interested in H1N1, who happened to contract the bug... I might be able to spread some good solid knowledge about symptoms and maybe help a few people out... thats my intention. Stop putting words in my mouth you manipulative grey beards.
