Is there a flu/cold bug going around at the moment?

Only I woke up this morning feeling terrible with a stuffy nose & a very sore throat...

I live in the north west of england...is there something going around at the moment or could it be abit of early hayfever? Although it doesn't really feel like hayfever...

Hi, yeah. I'm in Manchester and there's a cold bug going round. Sounds mild, though, haven't known anyone off sick with it, so you should be alright.

Thanks alot, yeah I don't feel too bad but bad enough to have no energy whatsoever lol
Just been speaking to a friend of mine who lives in London & even she's down with it...so it must be doing it's rounds haha!

It's strange, I didn't catch anything over the xmas when all my family were down with flu for weeks, I always seem to the catch the spring/summer bugs >.<

Re: Is there a flu/cold bug going around at the moment?

Oh dear, one is bad enough, never mind three...hope you're feeling better
I feel really bad at the moment, the main thing that bothers me is that it's raising my heartbeat & I have issues with my pulse/heart rate as it's that what triggered off the more severe anxiety a couple of years back.
Everytime I get a cold or something, it raises my heartbeat & makes it beat harder, it's terrible. :( So I'm feeling a little anxious at the moment but trying to distract myself...
