I am getting over...

I am getting over a sore throat and head cold that started last Thursday and went into work only to find a lady I work with husband was sick in bed all weekend with the flu. She has no signs of being sick, but since I am not quote up to par yet, can she be a carrier and I get it from being around her in the same office space?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?

Since last weds with a sore throat and then thurs with a head cold, slept a lot, feel better now, but not up to speed yet. Never a fever or any other issues.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have hasamoto's disease.

If she has no symptoms and do not cough or sneeze then it is less likely for her being a carrier. You might have contracted from some public place.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
