So scared right now about H1N1!
« on: January 06, 2014, 05:00:40 PM »
I am freaking out right now and it's the last thing I need to do. I got a stuffy, runny nose out of nowhere last night around 4am. As of today I feel achy, a bit out of it, have been blowing my nose a lot and have a low grade fever. At first I thought I had a cold but I read that colds don't normally have fevers or aches...only the flu does.

I have been terrified of getting H1N1 as I have some lung damage and wheezing in my chest on a regular day. I'm so scared that I may have it and am really afraid right now. Could someone please knock some sense into me or bring me down?

The first thing you need to know is that people don't automatically DIE because they have HI1N1.. is only a little but stronger than the regular FLU but is still a FLU. People Can get complications from it is left untreated for too long (just like the flu). TRUE STORY!!! PIECE OF MIND...GOO TO DOCTOR... THEY CAN EASILY TELL YOU AND EVEN IF IT IS H1N1 YOU WONT DIE FROM IT

I have been worrying about this too!! I have felt a little better when I read that post about googling and how the media loves a horror story and would rather report on the small amount of people who die from h1n1 than the large amount who do not. :) All we can do is take things one day at a time.

There are more types of flu than N1H1...

Besides, my brother, his wife and his wife's sister all had confirmed N1H1 and it was nothing more than another flu with some fever, fatigue and headache.

BTW, low-grade fever is more typical of a nasty cold than the flu.

I think you should relax. Get some paracetamol (acetaminophen) for that fever.

Thank you for the replies. Yes, I have been on Tylenol on and off since yesterday. My fever reaches 99.0 then drops. Of course, I have been feeling more feverish this evening and trying my best not to get anxious about it getting worse.

I agree that the media loves to sensationalize it but for a hypochondriac it's just the worst!

I had a really bad sinus infection with flu like symptoms a month or two ago. More than likely, you have a bad cold. Even if you did have H1N1, it's more treatable than it was in the past since it has become so common.
