I got H1N1, should I worry?

by (129) Updated February 25, 2014 at 1:18 PM Created February 20, 2014 at 11:37 PM

Was feeling flu type symptoms, went to see my doctor and turns out I contracted to H1N1 flu virus. I hear all these stories about people having life threatening issues from this strain. I'm a 28 yr old male who eats strict paleo, regular excercise, supplement wisely and get plenty of sleep. Should I worry?

  • H1N1 flu is also known as swine flu. It's called swine flu. While swine flu isn't as scary as it seemed a few years ago, it's still important to protect yourself from getting it.
  • Swine flu is contagious, and it spreads in the same way as the seasonal flu. When people who have it cough or sneeze, they spray tiny drops of the virus into the air. If you come in contact with these drops or touch a surface that an infected person has recently touched, you can catch H1N1 swine flu.
  • It's hard to tell whether you have swine flu or seasonal flu, because most symptoms are the same. But it is highly recommended that you have to take proper medical attention.

I'm definitely a spammer.

Risk factors that would be worrisome: history of asthma or other serious pulmonary problems, obesity, other co-morbidities (any other things wrong with you going on at the same time which could further tax your body's ability to mount a defense).

If none of these, don't worry. Make sure anybody closely exposed to you within the first 24 hours of your symptoms is told and gets a chance to take some Tamiflu if they want to.
