  • the real flu and the stomach flu are two different things. The flu (the one they vaccinate against) is short for influenza. It is a respiratory illness. The symptoms are ususally fever, cough, runny or stuffy nose, headaches, muscle fatigue, sore throat and sometimes extreme exhaustion. At times, someone can get nausea and diarhea with the flu, but this is rare. While it had been reported that this was sometimes a symptom of H1N1 novel flu, the respiratory symptoms were present as well.
