Can this still be the flu?

I haven't had a high fever, but here are my symptoms. I have had it for about 3 days now. Sore throat, cough, back ache, neck pain, headache, hot flashes, cold chills, and runny nose. Can it be the flu even though I haven't had a high fever?

  • It could just be a nasty cold. I had something similar in June. I would literally put my head down on something and fall asleep (at the table, on the beach - we were on vacation, in the car from the beach to the hotel) I also never had much of a fever for a normal person but for me my temp was elevated. I would call the doc in the morning and see if they would like to see you.

    Feel better!
