  • typically the flu has a fever and a cold doesn't. Typically you are achy with the flu but not with a cold.

  • My doc told me the flu hurts all over and a cold is mainly in the chest and head.

  • I start to sneeze more often that usual, I know I am getting sick and I start to feel slugish. When it's the flu I usually get aching muscles and bones.
