Symptoms....: Typically, flu symptoms include fever, headache, nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, body aches, fatigue, etc. With no other symptoms except a cough, it is unlikely you have the flu. Possibilities for a cough include acute bronchitis, bronchospasm from any cause (allergy, asthma, etc.), post-nasal drip, gerd, etc. If the cough persists or other symptoms develop, see your doctor.
