Swine flu Vs Common Cold – symptoms

What are the typical symptoms of Swine Flu and how do you differentiate it from the common cold or the regular flu? The swine flu and the regular flu look identical to most people. Both have similar symptoms such as

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Body Aches
However in some cases the swine flu may cause more discomfort. Patients could complain of nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, which are not typical symptoms of Influenza or Flu. People over 65, children under age 8 and anyone with a chronic medical condition are more susceptible to the virus.
