I was around someone with influenza now I have all symptoms except fever and nausea/vomiting. Can this be flu or more likely cold?

I was around someone with influenza now I have all symptoms except fever and nausea/vomiting. Can this be flu or more likely cold?

Influenza: without a fever you don't have influenza. You probably have a cold. If you haven't had a flu shot get one. Even though the antigens in the shot don't exactly match the flu strain this year, it should offer some protection and make the flu less severe if you get it. Influenza is sudden (like you were hit by a truck), fevers,chills, runny nose, cough, diffuse aches and rarely GI symptoms. ...Read more

Could be cyclic vomiting syndrome; could be other triggers for the symptoms, could even be migraine related. Could be other stuff too. Keep looking. ...Read more

Nausea & vomiting every morning not pregnant. 4 months pp.Been twice to the ER in the last 3 months and the keep saying stomach flu. What is cause?

ER: This is not the place in which to undergo evaluation for a chronic process. This needs careful assessment with history, physical exam and labs and possibly endoscopy or other procedures and should be done by a doctor with the time and training to do this. An ER, although staffed by wonderful concerned doctors, in not equipped for this. Go see a GI doctor. Good luck and hope this clears up soon. ...Read more
