Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare magic. Thank you for posting your query. I have gone through every detail of your post. I can understand your concern.

Do not panic.

Swine flu resembles any other viral fever . There are symptoms like fever,cough, headache, bodyache, running nose.

It takes around 3 days to develop symptoms after entry of the virus.

I would suggest you to
1. Have a nutritious diet. Drink plenty of water.
2. I would start tablet Paracetamol 650 mg to relieve the fever and headache and bodyache.
3. Get a nasopharyngeal swab test done for swine flu.
4. Get a blood test done for hemoglobin, total count, platelets and ESR
5. Wash your hands often. Avoid touching your face,nose, eyes when you go out. If possible use a H1N1 mask.

Do not worry. With proper treatment , swine flu can be cured.

Hope this helps.
Reply with thanks.
