In brief: Feel miserable.
Fever, chills, cough, body aches, fatigue, congestion.
Some vomiting/diarrhea, (influenza is not same as stomach flu). I've heard these descriptions: "like a truck backed over me, and i wished he'd come back and finish the job." "everything hurt. My arms, my legs, my head. . . Fingernails and eyebrows hurt." "i hurt so badly, i couldn't even sleep.".
