How to Tell if You Have the Flu:


  • Flu symptoms are typically more severe than cold symptoms and come on more quickly

  • Flu symptoms include:

    • Fever

    • Headache

    • Sore throat

    • Muscle aches

    • Congestion

    • Coughing

  • Flu symptoms usually improve over about a week, but can sometimes last longer

  • You may have a slight fever with a cold; the flu, however, commonly causes a temperature of 100-102 and usually lasts about 3 or 4 days

  • Many people with the flu report extreme exhaustion, which is a symptom that is rarely associated with the common cold

  • Seek medical attention within the first 24 hours of experiencing flu-like symptoms, and your doctor can perform a simple test to tell if you have the flu
