If i have the swine flu vs the regualar flu how would i know? What is the difference in symptoms?


What is the difference between the regular flu and the swine flu? And if someone has the swine , how long does it take to recover from it , esp if there are no vaccines available ? What should one do in that case? I have consulted a doctor and even he does not know what i should do, he himself said he had the swine already and has not fully recovered and i have had it now for three weeks . I have congestion so badly that sometimes i simply can not breathe properly.
----------

There is no difference. The flu is the flu. This swine nonsense is just the media's way to once again manipulate people into thinking they need flu shots and dangerous vaccines.  (+ info)

If someone has swine flu and has been in a vehicle, can it be passed on to others?


We tow cars. If a customer has swine flu, and we get in their car to tow it, can we get swine flu? Do the germs dissipate after a certain amount of time? If they sneeze and get snot on the wheel, will the germs be gone when the snot dries.
----------

Yes you can.
Practicing frequent handwashing, not touching the eyes,etc without washing the hands first, is said to help cut down on the risk of passing the virus from your hands to the eyes or mouth.  (+ info)

How do you diagnose swine flu and what is the accuracy of the diagnosis?


I am a bit astounded that doctors in minor clinics in Nova Scotia can claim to have diagnosed swine flu in four high-school students. Are they using some form of test like the HIV western blot, or are they just looking at these people weezing and in light of the present hysteria, saying OH MY GOD! SWINE FLU!
----------

Hey don't worry its just like the flu its not that bad my boss had it like three weeks ago and he recovered and my bro works at the hospital were they have 8 cases and only one person had to be hospitalized because that person was of old age, I really don't know why there dieing in Mexico maybe it isn't true. most Mexicans in Mexico are ignorant they use stupid Mexican remedies for the flu and i know I'm Mexican American with family down there and they don't know about Tylenol extra strength which lowers the deadly fever of a flu . may I add they do have really good doctors. all i know is im washing my hands cuz i dont want to miss 1 weeks worth of work or school! and if you do get it get rest go to your doctor and keep hydrated its just a flu the good part is that if you do get it you will be immune to bird flu and other crazy flus' worry if old  (+ info)

Whats the difference between swine flu and a cold?


I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the difference is between a cold and the swine flu? I went to the doctor the other day as I have been sick and he just gave me antibiotics. It makes me wonder, he didnt ask me is i had been travelling or do any tests. I am concerened about the swine flu!
----------

The swine flu leaves you with a extremely dry and sore throat which soon can lead to you having trouble breathing. Mainly, flu is very rare that a person can die. Swine flu can kill you in the matter of 15 days. They both involve, fever, cough, sneezing sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue.Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu.
Common cold symptoms usually start between one and three days after you are infected by a cold virus. Typically, they last for about three to seven days. At that point, the worst is over, but you may feel congested for a week or more. During the first three days that you have common cold symptoms, you are contagious. This means you can pass the cold virus to those you come in contact with.  (+ info)

What are the diffrences between swine flu and ordinary flu?


How could I learn the symptoms of swine flu ?How DO the doctors diagnose the swine flu from usual one?
IS IT RIGHT THAT 50 MILION PEOPLE DIED FROM SWINE FLUE IN 1919?
----------

The symptoms of swine flu in people are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza and include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

If you are sick, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people as much as possible to keep from spreading your illness to others.

If you become ill and experience any of the following warning signs, seek emergency medical care.

In children emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

* Fast breathing or trouble breathing
* Bluish skin color
* Not drinking enough fluids
* Not waking up or not interacting
* Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
* Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
* Fever with a rash

In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

* Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
* Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
* Sudden dizziness
* Confusion
* Severe or persistent vomiting

Doctors will do a swab test to se if you have the flu. If you have Type A influenza the sample will be sent to the cdc to see if it is the swine flu.  (+ info)

Why is swine flu so widespread in Canada, the US and the UK compared to mainland Europe?


There are so few cases in France, Germany and even Spain compared to the US, UK and Canada. Do mainland European countries have different definitions of when people have contracted swine flu? Or do they just have better healthcare/hygiene? It seems like English-speaking countries are the worst hit.
----------

Well gee, maybe it's because it started in Mexico and Canada and the US are on the same continent as Mexico? As for other countries, maybe they just aren't as open about reporting the numbers as Canada, the US, and UK.

H1N1 isn't actually that big of a deal. The media blew it way out of proportion. Far more people die every year from regular, seasonal influenza.

45 people have died in Canada from H1N1. Anywhere between 4000-8000 Canadians die ANUALLY from the regular flu and its complications.

Worldwise just over 700 people have died from H1N1. Anywhere between 250,000-500,000 people worldwide die ANUALLY from the regular flu.  (+ info)

What are the differences between swine flu and seasonal flu?


Is swine flu as deadly as they claim it to be.Could the vaccine be more deadly than the vaccine itself as some claim it to be?I feel like there has not been enough research on this new vaccine about side affects for the people instead of using it on people before further research of using on rats first instead of people? Has any one survived the swine flu?Opinions welcomed.
----------

The swine flu can only be contracted through intercourse with a pig.

While the seasonal flu in spread in more traditional manners  (+ info)

I have swine flu and have just finished a course of Tamiflu. How long before I start to feel better?


I have swine flu and have just finished a five-day course of Tamiflu antibiotics. Up to now, I haven't noticed any change in my condition. In fact, I'd say I feel worse than when I started taking the pills. Typically, how much time should pass before a person starts to feel better from taking Tamiflu?
----------

If you have been feeling nauseous, have had diarrhoea or vomiting this is probably side effects from the Tamiflu (which is an antiviral not an antibiotic).

Also, if you didn't start taking the Tamiflu within 48 hours of the onset of your flu symptoms then it's possible you are still getting over it. Tamiflu can only reduce the duration of symptoms by an average of one day if taken within that time frame. You might feel washed-out for a couple of days afterwards anyway.

Another possibility is that you didn't have flu, so if your symptoms haven't changed at all since taking the Tamiflu then go back to your doctor.  (+ info)

What's the difference between Swine Flu and other types of influenza?


People seem to be panicked about swine flu so I'd like to know the differences between swine flu and other types of flu. What makes it more dangerous?
----------

from what i understand, the swine flu and the flu that we are used to are very very similar, so one is not technically more dangerous then another.
the difference is our body's response to swine flu vs the flues that our body's have been exposed to. each strain of flu virus, no matter how similar requires our body's to respond and recognzie it. Even if you have never actually gotten sick with the flu (and many people havent ever actually gotten true influenza) you, most likely have some type of immunity (recognition). This may be from birth and/or breast feeding(mother's immunity), a previous flue shot, contacting the virus in small amounts, etc.
Recognition of a virus (or bacteria) is the intent of vaccines, giving a small amount of weak virus/bacteria or toxins or other various live or dead components allows the body to recognize it and therefore form a response to it.
The problem with a 'new' virus is that our bodies have no clue how to respond to it or fight it off. If the first exposure is an 'infective dose', it can overwhelm the body very easily.
The spanish flu pandemic of 1918 killed over 50 MILLION worldwide..it was unrecognized and 'new'. Now, that same flu and its descendants are the common flu. about a hundered years ago the flue that we are less concerned about now was a death sentence.  (+ info)
