    If you need to think about it, then it's definitely not flu.

    Everyone says this but I've never really understood it. I don't think there is much difference between a bad cold and flu, but then one person's idea of 'bad' and my idea will differ.

    Flu imo involves a hell of a lot more aches to the point it's a huge effort to get out of bed.
    A cold is in no way like that.
    But you are male so obviously it's all flu for you :p

    Well either I can't tell the difference or I've never had the flu in 33 years, is that possible?

    But 'Man Flu' is a killer. I nearly died from that last week. The doc said that if it had transformed to, what is commonly known as, 'a womans sniffle' I would have dropped in to a deep coma never to return.

    If you on here then it's not flu.

    If it takes more trouble to turn over than it would to run to spain then it's flu!
