Common Cold & Flu Symptoms

The common cold and the flu can produce many of the same symptoms, including:

  • Sneezing
  • Congestion
  • A sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Chest discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness

Because the two illnesses have so many similarities, it can be difficult to tell them apart, which is why it’s so important to obtain an accurate diagnosis from a trained medical provider. With that said, when compared to cold symptoms, flu symptoms are usually more severe and develop more suddenly. Colds are more likely to cause sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose, and a sore throat. But if you have a fever, chills, a headache, fatigue, and overall achiness, then you probably have the flu.
