The Flu

The flu along with the everyday cold has similar symptoms. It can be
hard to tell the distinction between them. In general, the flu is worse
than the common cold. Symptoms particularly exhaustion, body aches,
fever, and cough tend to be more typical and intense with the influenza virus.
Individuals with colds are more inclined to encounter a runny or stuffy
nose.

Flu signs or symptoms consists of:

  • A 100 degree (Fahrenheit) or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone with the
    flu has a fever)
  • A cough and/or sore throat
  • A runny or stuffy nose
  • Headaches and/or body aches
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)

The Ebola virus contagion can cause some comparable symptoms. Nevertheless,
of these viruses, your symptoms are most likely caused by seasonal flu.
Influenza is very common. Huge numbers of people are infected, thousands
and thousands are hospitalized and 1000’s pass away from the flu every
single year. In the United States, fall and winter is the time period
for influenza. While the exact timing of flu seasons vary,
outbreaks often begin in Oct and can last as late as May. For the most
part flu activity peaks anywhere between Dec and Feb .
