The 2013-2014 flu season has started picking up. Flu activity across the US is increasing and people everywhere are getting sick.
Are you concerned you might have the flu? Wondering what the 2014 flu symptoms are?
Flu symptoms for the 2013 - 2014 flu season are not significantly different than flu symptoms in past years.
They may include:
- Fever and Chills
- Body aches
- Vomiting or Diarrhea (more common in children)
These symptoms can all be caused by other illnesses as well so just because you are experiencing some of them, does not mean you have the flu. People who have the actual flu (influenza) typically describe it as feeling like they "got hit by a truck". Symptoms of the flu come on quickly and can linger for a week or more.
