Colds & Flu

Here is a list to help you figure out if you have a cold or the flu. Although the common cold and flu share similar symptoms, they are two different conditions.

The symptoms of a cold develop slowly, and can include:

  • Cough
  • Runny or stuffy nose (often with green or yellow-colored discharge)
  • Fatigue and muscle aches
  • Fever up to 102 degrees
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Watery eyes

Flu symptoms usually appear very suddenly, and can include:

  • Chills and sweats
  • Cough
  • Fatigue and muscle aches, especially in your back, arms and legs
  • Fever over 102 degrees
  • Headache
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Stuffy nose

Note: Cold symptoms are generally more mild than flu symptoms.
