Jay says:

I have type A at the moment (literally right now) and so does my girlfriend, she's got all the symptoms and is bedridden and i don't. My symptoms were,
Day 0, slight cough (once every hour)
day 1, I just had a cough and asthma, day 2, I had a cough, asthma and a tight chest.
Day 3, cough causing throat to hurt a little, asthma and coughing up little bit of yellow phlegm.

It's honestly bizarre how some people are way worse then others.

Sir Sambo says:

The best way I can describe it is like having the worst hangover ever…. for 7 days straight!

Cher Bradley says:

I just left the hospital. Felt sooooo sick for 2 days.Thought I had Covid again. Nope, tested positive for influenza A. I'm 67 years old and this shit kicking my butt!!! I've had all the vaccines and a Booster.

A N M says:

My daughter tested positive for type A. (Phoenix AZ).

They had not had FLU vaccine in years. So now I am determined to have them get FLU vaccine this coming season. Who knows what strain will be going around next FLU season.
