The symptoms of the flu appear suddenly and are as listed below:

-Fever of 100° (37.8°) to 104° (40°), which can reach 106° (41°) when symptoms first develop. The fever is usually continuous, but it may come and go. The fever may be lower in older adults than in children and younger adults.

-Shaking chills.

-Body aches and muscle pain (often severe), commonly in the back, arms, or legs.

-Headache.

-Pain when you move your eyes.

-Fatigue, a general feeling of sickness (malaise).

-And loss of appetite.

-A dry cough, runny nose, and a dry or sore throat. You may not notice these during the first few days of the illness when other symptoms are more severe. As your fever goes away, these symptoms may become more evident.

When fever is high, other symptoms usually are more severe.

Other conditions have symptoms similar to the flu, such as the common cold, bacterial infections, and infectious mononucleosis

My answer: Go See The Doctor. It could be something serious. A synus infection can be dangerous incase it's not treated; and the flu just makes you feel crummy if you don't get medications.
I hope I answered your question.

Yes you have the flu drink lots of fluids and get a lot of rest.


purrpletoad
Sure do. Just because you aren't nauseated, doen't mean you don't have the flu. There are several strains with different symptoms.


brittneekaye
Aches and Pains all over are the top symptoms of the flu, along with stuffy nose, possible throat ache, etc. As far as your headache above your eyebrows, this is your frontal sinuses giving you this headache...which can contribute to the flu. I would see a doctor if I were you, just so the flu doesn't develop into pneumonia.

FLU Symptoms



The term bird flu or avian flu is used to describe the influenza viruses that infect primarily the birds' population. In fact, birds appear to be a natural reservoir of flu viruses - 15 subtypes influenza A virus are known to be circulating in bird populations. Humans have caught the disease but only in small numbers as a few very rare cases have been noticed in the Far East.

Many forms of bird flu virus cause only mild symptoms in the birds or no symptoms at all. However, some of the viruses produce a highly contagious and rapidly fatal disease, leading to severe epidemics.

These virulent viruses are known as "highly pathogenic avian influenza" and it is these viruses that cause particular concern. One such avian flu virus is currently infecting chickens in Asian countries.

Flu is a contagious disease that is caused by the influenza virus. It attacks the respiratory tract in humans (nose, throat, and lungs). Influenza is an ailment which is different from, and usually much more severe than, the "common cold". It takes about 1-2 days from the time of exposure to the virus (i.e., infection) to the development of symptoms. This period is called the "incubation period."

The main symptoms of bird flu in birds or poultry are depression, loss of appetite, cessation of egg laying, nervous signs, swelling and blue discoloration of combs and wattles due to disturbance of blood circulation, coughing, sneezing and diarrhea. Sudden death can also occur without any previous signs.



The mortality rate may reach up to 100% depending on the species, their age, the virus type involved and environmental factors like concurrent bacterial infections. Clinical signs of bird flu consist primarily of mild respiratory disease, depression and drop in egg production in laying birds.

Symptoms of bird flu in humans range from typical flu-like symptoms such as:

Sore throat
Cough
Fever
Pneumonia
Respiratory distress
Respiratory failure
Life threatening complications
The symptoms of bird flu normally depend on the virus which has caused the infection.
These symptoms are usually referred to as "flu-like symptoms." In addition, people infected with influenza complain of moderate or severe malaise and fatigue. Illness can last for up to 1-2 weeks, although fever generally lasts only 3-8 days.

Anti-viral drugs like Amantadine, Rimantadine, have been found to be effective in treating influenza A Relenza and Tamiflu can treat Influenza A and B both as well as bird flu.

The flu virus can start spreading one day before the infected person falls sick. Hence you must rest if you feel the symptoms of Flu. It will help you get better and keep you away from spreading the flu virus. Flu is contagious even for 3 or 4 days after symptoms appear. You should drink plenty of fluids in order to avoid dehydration during this period.
