Can you have the flu without a sore throat or a cough and would the results to a flu test show after two days?

Can you have the flu without a sore throat or a cough and would the results to a flu test show after two days?

Les likely w/o cough: A significant non-productive cough is one of the main features of a true influenza viral infection (the flu), along with abrupt onset of muscle aches, fever, fatigue.

Cough: Could've been viral to begin with and this is now just a post-viral cough. If it was pneumonia, sometimes the cough can last for weeks afterward. It may be a new process - infection has cleared, but you got a new viral illness. Lots of possibilities. It's reassuring if there's no fever and breathing has improved. ...Read more

I'm a respiratory infection for a few days now and besides the runny nose and head ache I am having a very annoying cough accompanied by chest pain.

Not just 1: Thing to do here. For a patient of mine i would suggest over-the-counter plain Claritin or zyrtec (not with the"d") for the runny nose. 100% avoidance of all (all) milk products. The chest pain is likely from the coughing. If not allergic to it depending on patient size i recommend 1-2 advil + 1 tylenol (acetaminophen) for a patient of mine. As you know, i cannot make such medical recommendations for you. ...Read more
