Not H1N1

I just got back from the doctor. He said I had accute viral gastroenteritis (caused by a family of viruses that include norovirus). He said it was most probably not H1N1, because H1N1 usually manifests with sore throat and upper respiratory congestion and cold-like symptoms, not digestive symptoms. Edit: CDC FAQ says both can occur but respiratory is more likely. Anyway, I asked for the test. The results from that will be back in a few days (or longer - it had to be sent out to a lab). Hopefully going to the clinic won't have exposed me to it. :p

I probably caught this from some bad food. I'll probably have to chuck all meat and sauces now.

That said, this is quite contagious, and not fun.
