The ‘flu’ is caused by a virus. If you have a sudden onset of flu like symptoms, it probably is the flu. Viruses tend to hit suddenly and harshly. The flu symptoms are fever, body aches, cough, and congestion.

The treatment is to treat the symptoms. Take ibuprofen or Tylenol (not aspirin) for fever and body aches. Take an over the counter medicine for cough and congestion.
There are several studies showing that Elderberry extract will limit the length and the severity of flu symptoms.

Please wash your hands frequently, clean your cell phone with antiseptic and get plenty of rest. Stay home from work and catch up on your reading. If your temperature goes over 102, call the office.

AND when your symptoms are gone..come in and get the flu shot because you can get this several times.
