A Cold or The Flu?

How do you tell if you have just a bad cold or the Flu? Just asking a few Doctors the answer became easy. According to doctors there is a comparison of common symptoms and the differences between them, depending on whether they are caused by a cold or the flu.
Fever. With flu, it's characteristic and comes on suddenly: with a cold fever is rare.
Headache. Rare with a cold but a prominent symptom of the flu.
General aches. With the flu are usually and often severe; they are slight with a cold.
Fatigue. Fatigue is extreme with the flu and can last up to three weeks; a cold will leave you slightly
or mildly fatigued.
Runny nose. Is more common with a cold, and rare with the flu.
Sore throat. Only sometimes with the flu; but very common with a cold.
Cough. Common with flu and can become very severe; a cold will only bring you a hacking or mild cough.
Although the flu has many strains, if you are very young or 65 and over it is best to get your flu shots.
