In brief: INFLUENZA A signs

These are signs of influenza: fever/chills/aches/headache and cough.
Influenza a is epidemic right now. In the northwest influenza a began 2 weeks ago and dozens of cases came through my office (mostly children) last week. So take tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain/fever and push fluids and get rest! if you have a 'stiff neck' --consider meningitis (viral or bacterial) and get seen right away! hang in there!
