    Hi,

    I have had blocked ears and headache with fatigue for a couple of days then last night I started feeling quite unwell.

    I am aching all over and feeling sick as well as having a sore throat and runny nose.

    I do not have a temperature yet though so i'm hoping it's just a cold.

    I haven't gone into work today which I know will go down like lead balloon as we are so busy at the moment but I wanted to stay home and keep a check on my temperature. This is the first day I have had off due to illness in 6 months so they should count themselves lucky!!

    I just hope that i'm ok for my baby boy :(

    Ah sounds like you're suffering hun!

    Doesn't sound like Swine Flu, as you would have a very high temp by now. Also one of the other major signs is a sudden onset cough. Probably just a very bad cold or virus, maybe normal flu. Stay in the warm, take paracetamol and keep your fluids up. If you get worse or worried, call your Dr or NHS Direct.

    Hope you feel better soon x

    Could just be a bad cold..Eat some oranges, or vitamin c, and keep an eye on your throat! Don't want it being strep and not knowing!
