Do you have the swine flu? – symptoms

I normally don’t write about these kind of topics but since I see the hysteria kicking off in this beginning of Autumn I thought of bringing some information to the issue of swine flu.

How to know if you have swine flu? How to know if what you have is swine flu or a normal flu?

According to the doctor I just visited in Belgium, if you get the swine flu the first symptoms are going to be really strong. In a matter of less than one hour you should be feeling very, very bad, with high fever and pain all over, and even vomiting. A normal flu is a  lot more gradual. This is just one opinion I found after lots of effort, is it right?

It is really a problem that nowhere in internet but even in hospitals is explained the symptoms of the flu whilst at the same time the media don’t stop making everyone go paranoid about it. After searching a bit in internet the closest thing I found about Swine Flu H1N1‘s symptoms are:

– Sudden onset of fever, depression

– Coughing and sneezing

– Discharge from the nose and/or eye

– Diarrhea and vomiting

– Breathing difficulties

– Red eyes or inflammation

– Reduced or no food intake

We are in the beginning of Autumn, the flu season is just starting and Belgian hospitals are already collapsed with people thinking that they have the swine flu. If the authorities allow media to go paranoid about this so-called “pandemic” they should also give the means to the people to know what is it about and how to detect it. Most of the people don’t go to the doctor when they catch a flu because they know how to handle it, however they will go to the hospital this time round because of the hysteria about this virus. It would be a lot cheaper and responsible if there would be a phone number or a website where people could find basic information about detecting whether they have this flu or not.

I want to believe that, despite the economic benefits that a few will get out of this, there is no interest in letting the paranoia spread on this issue.


  1. I would think that the paranoina you speak about -besides the obvious benefits for some, including but not only those who produce the Tamiflu- has its origin in the difficulty to have reliable information about what is really going on.

    The mere sympthoms of the H1N1 at this stage make it really difficult to establish a reliable diagnose that differentiates between it and the “ordinary” flu. From what I read analyses are impeded -when we speak about countries with “sufficiently” equiped health systems, which is tantamount to say a small part of the world-, from the advice given to overcome the illness and prevent contagion: staying home and isolated while treating the symptoms until full recovery unless serious condition would advice going to the hospital. It will be thus quite complex to estimate the real impact of this new virus.

    The danger seems to lie in this very blend of the virus becoming the “ordinary” one and its likely subsequent mutations, some of which may be really virulent. Apparently investigations about the 1919 flu reveal an impact far beyond war-ravaged areas. So, like in San Francisco with the earthquake, we are waiting for another “big one” yet to come.

    It’s true that the media talk a lot about it without giving a lot of information. For Belgium there is an official website:

  3. i think that in asian countries the Swine Flu did not spread rapidly compared to those countries that are located in colder climates. we should still be very thankful that the swine flu did not cause massive infections.

    During the mid-20th century, identification of influenza subtypes became possible, allowing accurate diagnosis of transmission to humans. Since then, only 50 such transmissions have been confirmed. These strains of swine flu rarely pass from human to human. -;….
