Flu viruses can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The flu is different from a cold. The flu usually comes on suddenly. Patients who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:

  1. Fever* or feeling feverish/chills
  2. Cough
  3. Sore throat
  4. Runny or stuffy nose
  5. Muscle or body aches
  6. Headaches
  7. Fatigue (tiredness)
  8. Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults

  • It’s important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever.
