What are the symptoms of the flu? 

  • A fever of 100 degrees or higher, although 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) 
 

How do I know if I have the flu or a cold? 

 
The flu and common cold have similar symptoms. It can be difficult to tell the difference between them. Your healthcare provider can give you a test within the first few days of your illness to determine whether or not you have the flu. 
 
In general, the flu is worse than the common cold. Symptoms such as fever, body aches, tiredness, and cough are more common and intense with the flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. 
 

When should I seek emergency medical attention?

 Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of the following: 
 
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath 
  • Purple or blue discoloration of the lips 
  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen 
  • Sudden dizziness 
  • Confusion 
  • Severe or persistent vomiting 
  • Seizures 
  • Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough
