There is many mysterious symptoms going around the world right now. One thing is for sure and that is The Swine Flu doesn't really have FLU symptoms at all. It;s more of a respiratory symptom infection. Just the current condition in the UK and Norway right now. Very suspicious! A good website for news the american media won't report is http://www.rense.com
Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. In some cases vomiting, diarrhoea, dyspnea and myalgia(muscle pain).
