Hi I have recently suffered the worst flu-like symptoms in my life during the last 10/12days mainly - Sore throat,cough,aching all over, runny nose and severe headache and finally diahorrea in the early/latter stages. Have basically just kept warm, had plenty of fluids and paracetamol. Planning to visit gp again tomorrow as will need a fit-note for a few more days off work. Would really like to go back to work but think it would be prudent to gived it a few more days, its certainly taken it out of me have been so weak and had no appetite. Was it -is it swine flu? It seems to have died a death in the papers but believe me it is alive and kicking this winter.
