Q. How can I tell if I have the flu or a cold?

A. The flu's symptoms come on suddenly and include a high fever of 101 to 103 degrees F, headache, often severe aches and pains, tiredness and weakness, and chest discomfort or coughing. Sometimes it involves a stuffy nose, sneezing and sore throat. A cold, on the other hand, rarely causes a fever, headache, extreme exhaustion or aches and pains. Its most prominent symptoms are a stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat and a mild to moderate cough.
