Do I have the swine flu or the regular flu? How can I tell? What are h1n1 symptoms?
The H1N1 Swine Flu can only really be confirmed with an actual lab test. And, there isn’t a 100% tell tale sign in the form that you have novel h1n1 influenza. It would be nice if your skin turned bright pink or you started oinking uncontrollably. If only we were that lucky.
It’s not close to 100%, but there is one sign that hints that an adult might have the swine flu.
Diarrhea and Vomiting.
Adults don’t normally have diarrhea with the flu. That is usually only common with kids.
Otherwise Swine Flu has the same symptoms as regular flu including:
Remember, having Diarrhea and Vomiting is only an indicator. You can still have the h1n1 swine flu without these symptoms. And that also holds true for the other way around. You still might just have the regular seasonal flu accompanied with diarrhea and vomiting.
Only a lab test will confirm h1n1 flu.
Also remember this doesn’t include children. It’s not uncommon for children to have the all the swine flu type symptoms with the regular flu. And with kids it’s better to be safe then sorry, so take them to the doctor.
As we get more research in. We’ll try to narrow this down more for you. If we find that there is a more obvious sign, we’ll post it here, ASAP!!
