Severe vomiting, diarrhea, headache, aching limbs, chills, & cold sweats, no fever, no sore throat. Swine Flu?
Myself and my 3 year old son are both recovering from being really ill, my son had it first, it seemed to last 48 hours, 4 days later I got it, I am just recovering. The illness included severe stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, sensitive to light and sound, aching limbs, chills and cold sweats, I was very weak and could barely stand. I’m almost better, just weak and aching. Neither of us suffered a sore throat or runny nose or high temperature but my son has been left with a slight cough. Did we have swine flu?

To me it sounds like the stomach flu. U probably have no appitite just drink plenty of water or gingerale no solid food cuz it will come back up believe me i couldnt get out of bed cuz it hurt so bad, the stomach flu spreads fast so dont share anything with anyone else just try to keep yourself isolated soon symptoms will be relieved then try to eat slowly no citrus tho if it doesnt get better just have it checked out to be safe but promise u it isnt swine flu

u would have a fever with swine flu, trust me i had it. so probably just the stomach flu. take peptobismal, eat saltine crackers, drink gingerale, an you will be back to normal soon… get well!

“Symptoms usually appear 1 to 3 days after exposure. Influenza symptoms may include headache, fever, chills, cough, sore throat and body aches. Most people do not have diarrhea and vomiting. Although most people are ill for less than a week, some people become seriously ill and may need to go to the hospital.”

This is a strange year for the Bug…..i never heard of anyone getting the flue after the month of may…..never the less it sounds like both of you have the old fashioned flue.
I hope both of you are well soon

Contrary to what two people said, there’s no such thing as stomach flu. Flu is a respiratory infection, not a gastric or intestinal one. The incubation period for swine flu is 2-4 days and it lasts from 7-10. Technically, you cannot be diagnosed based on symptoms alone. A specific blood test is required to confirm a diagnosis. Fever is a key symptom that distinguishes all flus from some other conditions.
Rather than having had swine flu or any type of flu, it sounds more like you and your son may have suffered from gastroenteritis, which can last anywhere from 1 to 10 days, depending on the virus or bacteria involved. Although the incubation period is generally 1-3 days, this can vary from one person to another and it’s not unheard of for one person to fall ill and another to succumb one week later. I expect his lingering cough may something to do with throat irritation from the vomiting.
