Early signs of influenza A (H1N1) are flu-like, including fever, cough, headache, muscle and joint pain, sore throat and runny nose, and sometimes vomiting or diarrhoea. Like seasonal flu, swine flu may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical conditions.

It is important that as swine flu spreads, you know the symptoms of the disease so you can recognise it in yourself and others at an early stage.

Symptoms of swine flu are like regular flu symptoms and
include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue.
Many people with swine flu have had diarrhea and vomiting.
Nearly everyone with flu has at least two of these symptoms.
But these symptoms can also be caused by many other conditions.
That means that you and your doctor can't know, just based on your symptoms, if you've got swine flu.
Health care professionals may offer a rapid flu test, although a negative result doesn't necessarily mean you don't have the flu
