Likely not influenza: Hi - given your symptoms influenza is not likely unless you have other symptoms besides the ones listed above. Flu symptoms include cough, fever, chills; also commonly muscle aches especially in the legs. Your lack of respiratory symptoms makes me worry about another virus OR another illness entirely. Very few healthy adults die from flu.
