Were you looking for information about Flu Symptoms? Flue symptoms is a common misspelling of flu symptoms.
If you become infected with the flu virus, you will usually feel symptoms one to four days later. Some of the more common flu symptoms include fever, muscle aches, dry cough, and sore throat. People often confuse cold symptoms with those of the flu. However, cold symptoms are usually milder and don't last as long.
Although nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can accompany flu symptoms, especially in children, gastrointestinal symptoms rarely occur. The illness that people call "stomach flu" is not influenza (the flu).
While medications are now available to help prevent and treat flu, in most cases, treatment involves
bed rest, drinking plenty of fluids, and taking aspirin or acetaminophen to relieve pain and fever.
