Lesser Known Flu Symptoms: Muscle aches

Viruses can cause several common diseases: cold, flu, and chicken pox and some rarer illnesses: HIV, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD disease), and polio. Vaccines and improved hygiene measures have lessened the severity and the rate of some of these, but others: the common cold and flu, still plague humans annually. Determining the exact virus causing an illness is the first step in any office visit for viral symptoms. A physician will ask the patient about his symptoms before running any other tests. Often flu symptoms: muscle aches, fever, headache and upper respiratory problems will help the doctor to choose the best course of treatment to follow.

Common Flu symptoms: Fever

The flu is caused by a virus with many different types. Just as there are green apples and red apples, there are different strains of the flu. Some of the more troubling types recently have been the avian flu, swine flu, and the most recent H1N1 flu pandemic. These are all related to the seasonal flu, but they strike different populations, some affecting pigs or birds, while others infect humans. Among all of these types of flu, one of the shared flu symptoms is fever.

What is the stomach flu?

What is the stomach flu?

Stomach flu is not a medical term. Many use it to refer to any type of illness which results in nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, but the cause does not have to be from the flu virus. Doctors will call "stomach flu" gastroenteritis, which refers to an irritation of the digestive tract. Most cases of influenza do not result in stomach flu symptoms.
