Allergies don't: Usually make you feel like you have been run over by a mac truck - the way the flu can. Flu symptoms can include fever, chills, sore throat, cough, headaches, nasal congestion marked aching of muscles and joints ; significant fatigue. When present, nausea, vomiting and loose stools are more often seen in children.

No: Seasonal allergies, like the flu, often but not always result in any or all of the following: runny nose, scratchy throat, watery eyes, and congestion. But, unlike the flu, they do not usually include shortness of breath (unless a serious allergic reaction), body aches, or pounding headaches.
