Swine Flu Symptoms & Signs of H1N1

How to tell one from the other.

By Anthony Komaroff, M.D., Harvard Health Publications
Harvard%20Health%20Publications//Harvard%20Medical%20School%20

For most people, the word “flu” means just about any short-term illness that lays them low. To other people, flu means any short-term illness that makes them cough, feel sick and achy, and have a fever. However, to doctors, flu means an illness caused by an influenza virus. In this report, the word “flu” means an illness caused by an influenza virus.

The early symptoms of all kinds of flu are similar, and they also are similar to the symptoms caused by infections from many other viruses. That makes it difficult to diagnose any kind of flu by symptoms alone.

All flu viruses spread by jumping from one host (person or animal) to the next mainly in small droplets of saliva and mucus or in feces. Inside each droplet of saliva can be tens of millions of tiny flu viruses. Once a virus finds a new host and infects the new host’s cells, it begins to reproduce quietly, making millions of copies of itself before causing symptoms. This time between when the infection begins and when symptoms start is known as the incubation period. With the new swine flu virus, the incubation period is between 3-5 days.

Ordinary human flu tends to occur during colder weather, typically between November and March in the United States and elsewhere in the northern hemisphere. Flu-like illnesses that occur in other months are less likely to be caused by an influenza virus. Although most people with flu have a cough and sore throat, these symptoms can be caused by many other infections, as well, even during flu season.

When someone develops a cough and sore throat in flu season, there are several things that tend to distinguish flu from another kind of infection. A person with influenza is more likely to experience the following:

  • symptoms start abruptly—over just a few hours
  • feel very sick (no energy for anything)
  • high fevers (100° F to 105° F) that rise to this level rapidly, in the first 12 to 24 hours
  • bad headaches, aching muscles, aching joints, pain on moving the eyes, and discomfort in bright light—along with the cough and sore throat

In other words, as anyone who has had it can attest, “ordinary” flu can make you feel pretty sick for a while. However, in healthy people, ordinary flu subsides once the human body mounts a defensive response: healthy people usually return to full health after about a week. For older people or those with diseases of the heart or lungs, adding the burden of serious lung infection to their existing condition can be too much. In fact, 30,000 people die each year in the United States because of ordinary human flu.

Symptoms of H1N1 flu

The initial symptoms of this new flu have been similar to the symptoms of the regular flu. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may be more common.

Here are the differences so far between H1N1 flu and seasonal flu:

  • H1N1flu seem to thrive in much warmer than the usual cold weather when seasonal flu thrives.
  • Symptoms seem to be no worse than those of seasonal flu, although that may change when the weather gets colder in late fall and winter.

People with flu symptoms should seek immediate medical attention if, instead of recovering, they become sicker with the danger signs listed here.

For adults, the most worrisome symptoms are these:

  • shortness of breath
  • persistent vomiting
  • confusion
  • dizziness

For young children, the most worrisome symptoms are:

  • very rapid breathing
  • not interacting normally, not eating or drinking normally, being unusually irritable, or appearing unusually sleepy
  • high fever and rash
  • a bluish color of the lips and skin

Gary Jacobucci is a conspiracy theorist who (no surprise) doesn't know what he's talking about.

A few people claim the Department of Defense (DoD) added squalene to anthrax vaccine to stretch the vaccine supply. Four civilian panels have looked into these allegations since 1999 and repeatedly found them groundless. Neither DoD nor anybody else added squalene to anthrax vaccine for our troops.

Squalene in H1N1 Vaccine

When the CDC/HHS determined that they would have to start producing a H1N1 vaccine there was a rather considerable cover-up as to the actual number of influenza infection that were breaking out, and both state and federal authorities started actually classifying the actual numbers of the confirmed cases in the name of political expediency, with no priority for public health.

At around the same time the CDC and FDA started talking about granting "authorization" for ""new and untested drugs, based on a Presidential Declaration of Emergency".

So here we are six months after the H1N1 outbreak starts, and six months after the CDC/HHS and FDA buttered up the medical community about a new and untested vaccine that would be coming out right around now so that immunizations could begin prior to Thanksgiving.

The CDC claims that the States now have million of doses that they can deploy, but everything seems to have gotten stuck on hold as it were, until the President made the Emergency Declaration on Friday based on a classified briefing he was given on Thursday of last week.

It is good that we have a vaccine, it is just too bad that we do not have enough to go around (hey, it sucks to be you).

Those people who do take the vaccine are likely to get a dose that has squalene, but the side effects (pain and misery) from the adjuvant are far less then actually getting deathly sick from the H1N1 virus..

The sad thing is that the government has been lying to the public since the very first day of this infection, and very little of what they have told the public has been truthful.

The military has taken a serious thrashing over the years for their use of squalene in "classified vaccines" , so you can find out quite a bit about the use of squalene and other vaccine adjuvants in the various web-sites the military has set up to explain their position.

The use of adjuvants come from a profound lack of preparedness by the government, and most certainly from the public. They are used when you really do not have enough of a vaccine to go around, go you add a chemical to the vaccine to trick the immune system of the person to whom you are giving the vaccine to. Consider it to be a type of virological "Hamburger Helper", so that they can take when they have and squeeze more doses out of a medication that is massively diluted... possibly to the point where the vaccine is of little or no value.

All things being considered this weak response is the results of extremely poor planning on the part of the government. They have had 8 months to prepare, and they should have had the first few million doses out and into the hands of the medical specialists by late May 2009 at the latest.

It is one thing for them to not be prepared for this situation, but it is completely unforgivable that they have been lying to the public and needlessly endangering the public for the past 6+ months. The only reason that H1N1 infections numbers are exploding right now is simply because school is back in session, and this illness is rampantly spreading through the populations of the children and young adults right now. I have been saying for months that the U.S. Government should have stop school restarting until after they had the vaccine, and it was widely distributed, and those of of greatest risk of getting deathly ill from it not allowed to go back to school until the vaccine had a few weeks to come up to full effectiveness in their systems (several weeks after taking the vaccine)

The CDC has been lying to the public by at least a 25:1 ratio, so that when they say that there has been only 40,000 cases, there really was an. actual 1,000,000+ cases. When they say that only 1000 children have died... there really was closer to 25,000 or more.

It will be important for anybody who takes the H1N1 vaccine to get a copy of the sheet that is supposed to be given out with each shot, and to compare the writing on the vial to what is on the piece of paper you are given (do not be surpised if they do not match). Then ask the person who is giving it to you about it the vaccine has any Squalene of not, if they do not know then find someplace else to get the vaccine (most medical people just give the medication, very few actually have any idea what the medication actually is). Pay attention to the batch codes or lot numbers, and get it put into writing exactly what you were given.

I have attached a snapshot of one of the military pages where there is a whole bunch of tap dancing by the military about the use of Squalene adjuvants, along with a long list of references and sources.

Liquid chromatography, and a small group of scientists who express vaccine from the injection sites of recently immunized patients will have some interesting announcements in a few weeks after the vaccine is "available" and in wide spread use.

The interesting thing about the use of an unapproved, and untested drugs and vaccines is that if the President makes an Emergency Declaration, then the companies who sold the vaccine to the government, and the people, hospitals, and agencies who give it can never be sued or held responsible is even the slightest way, even if it kills thousand of people. It is the ultimate "get out of jail free" card for the pharmaceutical companies.
