My 19 year old son and I have both just been to the doctor - although not official, he said we probably had the swine fluTamiflu has helped, but my son had the worst headache of his life with this, and I had one also.  With the tamiflu the headache went away pretty quickly, but we both had nausea, chills, achy body.  We both had a cough before the headache started as well.  Hope this helps.

If headache is the only symptom not likely to be swine flu. What about bodycahes fever sore throat runny nose. People with flu will generally have a couple of these symptoms as well.
