The Flu is coming the Flu is coming!!!

Influenza(flu) is here everyone and each year we have a new strain that takes a toll on everyone especially our children and adults. Flu symptoms can be mild or severe — and if they’re mild it can become severe without much notice. Be aware of your body and monitor your body temperature. Flu symptoms can come on suddenly — be sure you know your treatment and prevention options so you can be prepare. It’s best to say anytime your body doesn’t feel right always check with your Doctor. You must remeber that you don’t need to experience all of these symptoms to have the flu.If you have one or two,it’s recommended that you see your doctor.The flu usually spreads from person to person in respiratory droplets when people who are infected cough or sneeze. People occasionally may become infected by touching something with influenza virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose or eyes.

Healthy adults may be able to infect others 1 day before getting symptoms and up to 5days after getting sick. Therefore, it is possible to give someone the flu before you know you are sick as well as while you are sick.So while we go through this season of Flu strains it’s best to make sure you WASH YOUR HANDS CONSTANLY make sure to cover your mouth when coughing and please be considerate of others..some people have very low immune systems which allows them to catch the flu much easier then others.

Some symptoms to look at are:

Fever (usually high)
Muscle aches
Extreme tiredness
Dry cough

Runny nose may also occur but is more common in children than adults
Stomach symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, may also occur but are more common in children than adults.

Again this is just my medical opinion…PLEASE SEEK YOUR OWN PHYSICAN AT ALL TIMES:

Enjoy your winter!!!
