Do I Have the Flu?
The flu is a virus that is accompanied by miserable symptoms, such as:
- Runny nose
- Muscle aches
However, just because you’re experiencing some of these symptoms doesn’t mean you automatically have the flu. Sometimes, these symptoms can point to a different illness, such as a respiratory infection, strep throat, or the common cold. Nevertheless, you should still come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for flu treatment as soon as possible because antiviral medications — which we prescribe to some patients — are most effective if taken within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. It’s especially important to come to our urgent care center for flu treatment if you are over the age of 65, have a chronic condition, or have a weakened immune system, as it’s more likely that you could develop serious complications as a result of the flu. (Children under the age of five are also susceptible.) And, if it turns out that you don’t have the flu, we can get you started on a course of treatment that’s suited to your condition.
Treating the Flu
Our experienced practitioners will evaluate you by taking note of the symptoms you are experiencing and learning about your medical history. This evaluation is often enough for us to diagnose you with the flu or another illness. From there, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan, prescribe medication if necessary, and send you home to get lots of rest.
