Symptoms / signs swine flu and flu symptoms

Symptoms Swine flu and flu symptoms: confusion consult with doctor. Swine flu symptoms include fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and dry cough that can last long. The swine flu incubation period is 2 to 4 days after infection. Flu symptoms are something else: tired, nausea, headache, chills, muscle aches, fever, pain, sore throat, runny nose, etc. The incubation period for influenza is 24 to 72 hours.
There is little difference between the symptoms swine flu and flu symptoms. Therefore it is wise to uncertainty and consult a physician. The main difference appears to be a dry cough that lasts a long time and the incubation time. Yet I treat the symptoms in this article separately because the swine flu requires a different treatment. For example, the ordinary flu vaccine does not help against swine flu.
