What Are the Symptoms of the Flu?

The symptoms of the flu range from mild to severe, and often come on suddenly. You may experience:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Fatigue
  • Body aches
  • Headaches

Vomiting and diarrhea are other telltale symptoms of the flu, and it’s more common for children than for adults.

How Is the Flu Treated?

Flu treatment typically involves antiviral medication, and it’s most effective if taken within the first 48 hours after the onset of symptoms. By taking antiviral medication early enough, you may lessen the severity of your symptoms and the duration of the illness.

When you come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for flu treatment, you’ll be promptly seen by one of our practitioners who will conduct an exam to learn about your symptoms. In some cases, your practitioner may administer a rapid flu test, although this isn’t generally necessary. We’ll provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan that will detail the steps to take during your flu treatment, and send any prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
