I an not sure if I have the flu

Patient

Q: I an not sure if I have the flue or a cold my symptoms are runny nose, fatigue, minor body ache, coughing, not much of an apitite, and low fever that Is on and off

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Looks like there is viral fever, more like a flu. Plenty of oral fluids and having a bland diet would surely help. Take sufficient rest and sleep for at least 8 hours a day. You may take paracetamol for pain and fever. Drink lots of water and fresh juices.

Hope this helped.
Regards
