We both have had horrible body aches, fever and congestion.We have been knocked out! DH also has diarrhea .. not me, not yet. I'm laying in bed just aching and shivering to death.

Is it the flu or a cold? Do you get fever and body aches with a cold?

It is hard to tell. To settle the debate, someone needs to get an influenza test. That is the only way.

Cold normally doesn't cause diarrhea. Sounds like flu. Or could be cold and a stomach bug at same time. Both are going around.

Guessing the flu.  If you are on the first or second day, get your butt out for Tamiflu.  If you are further gone, enjoy the ride :-/
