Agrace, I normally will have a day with fever, break it 3 or 4 times and ge tup the next morning with no problems.

This year I had 3 days of flu, even my fingers hurt, then a week with no symptoms and felt fine.

Now a deep cough but no fever, from what I understand it is the secondary fever you have to watch for.

Now I am 43 ,in the bracket to get this severely, my flight surgeon ( 75)told me , I'm the prime target for this, the emergency rooms and ICU in NM are full........half are pre-existing the other half, the sickest half are like me.

My wife, who is older has only the cough.

I hope this helps.

It does help, thank you. I’d be curious to know how long your cough lasts. If mine is the same, deep is certainly a good word for it. I have read that lots of H1N1 patients have lingering coughs. I’m 41 and in that same bracket, but maybe my immune system saved me from the worst of things like usual.

And speaking of age brackets, my 6 & 8 yr old didn’t get sick at all, my 12 yr old coughed for several days, but my husband got pretty sick, felt bad longer, and still has traces of cough too.

Maybe it WAS H1N1. Although even if I could check at this point, I hear that they’re seeing so many cases that they’re not doing the specific test anymore.
