Do I Have a Cold or Do I Have The Flu?

A common question is do I have a cold or do I have the flu.  When you feel sick, it’s often hard to tell if you’re experiencing the common cold or the more serious dreaded Flu virus.  WebDocOnline is here to help.  MDLIVE’s Dr Gurland helps to explain the differences between a cold or the flu and how best to treat them.

Do I have the Cold Symptoms:

Do I have a cold?  With colds, you typically will not experience a high fever although it may go up to between 99F-100F.  What you may experience however is the common aches and pains, headaches, and some fatigue.  Extreme exhaustion is quite rare, but possible.  Other symptoms include a cough, sore throat, stuffy nose, and sneezing.

Do I have the Flu Symptoms:

Do I have the flu?  With the flu, you usually have a high fever, with a temperature between 100F-102F (sometimes higher). This fever can last for 3-4 days. Headaches, aches and pains (possibly severe), and extreme exhaustion or fatigue are common, and these symptoms can last for 2-3 weeks. Other symptoms often include a cough, which can be severe. However, while a sore throat, stuffy nose, and sneezing can occur with the flu, they are not always present.
