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?
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.
