Cold and Flu : Health Tip: Could You Have the Flu?

Posted January 25, 2014

(HealthDay News) -- Flu abounds during the winter months, but it can be difficult to distinguish it from the common cold or other viruses that thrive when the weather is cold.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says symptoms of flu include:
  • Having a sore throat and cough.
  • Running a fever, although it is possible to have the flu without a fever.
  • Having body aches and headache.
  • Having a stuffy or runny nose.
  • Feeling tired.
  • Having chills.
If you think you may have the flu, see your doctor.
