In brief: Influenza

Usually, if you have the flu you know it! symptoms usually include fever to 102- usually of a very rapid onset- where a person could remember the exact moment he felt ill.
Other symptoms include muscle aches, headache, chills, cough. While other viruses could mimic these symptoms they are usually not as severe or of such rapid onset.
