We all get colds now and again, but "the flu" [influenza] is different. It is a virus that can keep you in bed for days and leave you feeling tired and run down for weeks. So finding better ways to treat the flu is vital.
Here are the signs and symptoms of the flu:
- malaise (i.e. feeling really, really poorly...you know, like the proverbial "truck has hit you")
- body aches and pains
- sore throat
If you think you have the flu, please call your doctor.
