In brief: Yes
The flu-like symptoms can be due to many different things.
There must be a reason why your wife is concerned. It should be evaluated. There are many ways doctors can help you feel better by reducing your symptoms. The flu can also be treated with antiviral drugs directly against the flu virus itself if it's within 48 hours of the onset of the flu symptoms.
