Yes, all of that: The most common symptoms of influenza a are fever, sore throat and cough, but most people just feel awful and might be best described as feeling like they've been run over by a truck, or maybe they'd have preferred that to the way they feel. Get medical attention soon, because you can take antivirals within 48 hous that can shorten the duration illness and reduce the risk of complications.
