Cold & Flu Symptoms

For those experiencing cold and flu symptoms, Urgent Care is a great option. While both sicknesses are respiratory illnesses, they are caused by different viruses and can have different symptoms. Colds are usually not as serious as the flu, and they usually do not result in more serious issues such as pneumonia or hospitalizations.

Symptoms for a cold might include sneezing, stuffy nose, sore throat, mild or moderate chest discomfort, fatigue, weakness, and slight body aches. A cold usually does not cause an abrupt onset of symptoms such as a fever or a headache.

Symptoms of the flu include an abrupt onset of symptoms such as a fever, body aches, the chills, fatigue, weakness, chest discomfort, and headaches. The flu may or may not cause sneezing, a stuffy nose, or a sore throat.
