What is the Flu?
Unlike a cold, Flu symptoms usually happen fast, and without any signs, before it hits. This super contagious virus can make you feel miserable with symptoms that are more serious than the common cold’s sneezes and runny nose.
What Are the Symptoms of the Flu?
Symptoms of the Flu are similar to the Common Cold but more severe. Because of this, people often question, “Do I have the Flu? Or is this just a Cold?” Flu symptoms can occur without warning instead of developing over time like the Common Cold. Flu symptoms can include but aren’t limited to:
- Runny Nose
- Sore Throat
- Body Aches
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “Seasonal inFluenza activity in the United States has been elevated for eight weeks and continues to increase”.
