Avatar n tn Can I get the H1N1 nasal flu shot with addisons? It is not the shot, it is the one they spray up the nose. I do not think they have the shot form with the H1N1 flu vaccine. I already got the regular seasonal flu shot. They nasal spray flu vaccine contains live viruses, so that's why I am asking this question. Thank You.
141598 tn?1355675363 Here's some more information that I found . How do people get H1N1 (swine flu)? You can become infected by the H1N1 influenza virus when an infected person coughs or sneezes droplets near you and you take in the virus through your mouth, nose or eyes. You can also get the virus by touching a contaminated surface such as a countertop or doorknob, and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. How long can the virus live on a countertop or other surface?

Avatar f tn I think alot of it has to do with trusting your instinct and going with what you are most comfortable with, with this and pregnancy in general.
Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone here has kids that have gotten the H1N1 virus yet?? If so, how old are your kids are and how bad was it?? Just curious how infants and toddlers are handling it and what symptoms appeared first for them. What other symptoms appeared? How long did it last? I am not worried about this flu but just wondering what others have/are experiencing with little kids since it seems to be widespread now.
460185 tn?1326081372 When I was watching the local news last week,they did some segments about H1N1. There was also a dr and an epidemiologist there. According to the dr and the "epi", H1N1 will incubate when the school is empty. I have a few clarification questions about this: (1) How can the virus be contained before kids going to school are exposed to it? (2) Can the "source" be eliminated? (4) Does H1H1 need humans to make it thrive? (5) Is it resistant to heat and cold?
242516 tn?1368227505 There is concern that we are now experiencing a second wave of H1N1 this fall with the return of children to school. You may have H1N1 if you have fever (temperature > 100 degrees) AND either cough or sore throat. Fever is present in 94% of cases, cough in 92%. Other possible symptoms include chills, runny nose, headache, muscle ache, and in less folks, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Avatar m tn Seasonal flu vaccine is available now and initial doses of 2009 H1N1 flu vaccine also are available, with additional doses available later this year. Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people. Take everyday actions to stay healthy. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water.
Avatar m tn The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
168348 tn?1379360675 As with the seasonal influenza vaccines, the 2009 H1N1 vaccines are being produced in formulations that contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative, and in formulations that do not contain thimerosal. People with severe or life-threatening allergies to chicken eggs, or to any other substance in the vaccine, should not be vaccinated. In the ongoing clinical studies, the vaccines have been well tolerated.
661650 tn?1302286158 and * People with the 2009 H1N1 virus. Confirmation of novel H1N1 flu infection can only be made with: * Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR); or * Viral culture (growing cells). This H1N1 flu virus is new. Scientific research is being conducted to better understand its characteristics. Because this is a situation that is rapidly changing with new information available, please visit the CDC website http://www.cdc.
Avatar m tn after 4 days on 175 mcg of synthroid, i am flat out in bed - aches all over my body and every inch of my skin hurts. not coughing or sneezing so doubt it is the flu. possible that it is the brand change? or the dose increase? or am i in left field? will check with my doc tomorrow but interested in knowing if this could be cause.
611067 tn?1458595083 I've been away for awhile because I caught the dreaded H1N1 virus and even before that was feeling sick a lot. Now I have pneumonia and just started and antibiotic yesterday. . .but all my cats have also gotten sick. First Katie had runny eyes and was lethargic and seemed to be feeling yucky. Then Roxy seemed to have the same problem, then Charlies, then Rusty and now Abby. They all had the watery eyes and the same eye seemed to be bothering them.
973741 tn?1342346373 Personally, I usually stay away from crowds/and or close contact with people coughing and sneezing and wash my hands and the door knobs and water handles often during the flu season. So those are my thoughts. That it is more beneficial than not. I still get the flu shot and both of these things have helped.
151928 tn?1275710937 (I did read that gullain barre is one of the things doctors are supposed to look for with the new H1N1 vaccine and report to the fda but I could not find anything that said it was occurring a lot...) I'd just like to read more about it before I make a decision.
Avatar m tn These symptoms do not describe the H1N1 flu. itchy nose, sneezing, headache are symptoms of an allergy. the stomach ache and diarreah sound more like maybe you ate something that didnt agree with you; or some other intestinal illness. sweating and always being hot can be from hormones or thyroid or something else eintirely.
Avatar n tn after the headache started to cool down and get better I had a flue for about 5 days with no high fever, only sneezing and runny nose... 3:after that I felt dryness in my upper mouth and swollen lymph nodes in the right side of my neck then I went to a doctor and he told me that I'm having a high blood pressure..... and now after all of that....I feel mostly ok...no tiredness...no severe headaches....although i feel it sometimes quickly and it doesnt take long......
Avatar m tn About a week ago on Sunday I started to feel really tired along with headaches and some mild diarrhea and it lasted roughly 2 days, then on Tuesday I developed various cold symptoms including cough, sneezing, congestion, running nose, and further head aches. This lasted until Friday and then I started having worse diarrhea (5-8 runs a day), Nausea, along with exhaustion but less of the other symptoms.
764229 tn?1322523484 keep bfing, baby needs that great milk just keep your hands washed and careful with sneezing and coughing i hope you feel better!!!
Avatar f tn I think I'm OK because it been 20 years since that blood transfusion, I still don't get sick. Well except one time, I got knock down hard with the H1N1 Flu, but my body fight it off without any medicine help. Let just said if I indeed have HIV without knowing it for 20 years, it is possible for me free of symptoms this long? I was 10 when I get the blood tranfusion, now I am 30. And I grow up OK, my health is good I think. Don't get sick, except sneezing and toothache.
Avatar f tn I feel like I'm back helping in kindergarten. I swear that year I got everything. Of course, with little ones coming up and sneezing on you, you haven't got a chance of not being sick. Thanks, worried. I was beginning to think there was really something wrong with me!
Avatar f tn Has anyone in the UK (or anywhere really) experienced these symtoms as well: runny nose & sneezing, recurring aches and pains, difficulty breathing, chesty cough, a temperature that keeps going up and down, slight delerium/disorientation, fatigue, sore throat, periodical headache, nausea? I went to the doctor a couple of days ago, and he said I had a virus that has been affecting many other people - so much that they had to open on a Sunday and a bank holiday.
171768 tn?1324233699 The misinformation is confusing too- She got it from someone who was diagnosed with flu, but not H1N1 (but i thought they're not testing for H1N1 specifically... moot point since a flu is a flu). Supposedly they were told they're not contagious 24 hrs after starting to show symptoms. (Huh?! I thought you're contagious for 24 hrs after fever subsides). So my mom says that the girl isn't contagious anymore.
349463 tn?1333575176 My other son never got really sick during the flu season, thankfully. So I am hoping we can through this winter with nothing serious! I have no clue how to prevent it though. I wash my hands like crazy, use sanitizer all the time, and won't allow certain people to hold my baby, but that doesn't ensure that he won't get anything. Any ideas would be great. I'm glad I am a SAHM so I don't have to worry about daycare or babysitters, but I am concerned about it.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr. Handsfield, on Oct. 22nd, i had sex with a girl i was recently seeing. we had protected sex but i performed oral sex on her (which didnt take long, and she had washed her private area beforehand). i later found out that she had had unprotected sex with her 2 previous boyfriends. that already got me worried.
Avatar f tn They say its an Dallas officer with the Ebola like symptoms now , they say he wasn't in contact with the man that died but was in his apartment.
Avatar f tn I didn't mention this before, but I work with preschool children who all had snotty runny noses 101+ fevers nasty coughs coughing in my face, and sneezing their nasty boogers all over me in the fall and my husband ended up with a nasty stomach flu during Christmas but I just took proper precautions (hand washing, sanitizer, Clorox wipes, drinking orange juice by the gallon! Lol taking my apple cider vinegar and probiotics, eating tons and tons of yogurt and antioxidant rich fruit and fiber).
