What symptoms indicate I could have the flu?
Some common symptoms include:
- A 100°F or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone will have a fever)
- A cough and/or sore throat
- A runny or stuffy nose
- Headaches and/or body aches
- Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)
Symptoms of the flu can easily be mistaken for those of a common cold, and vice versa. Only a board-certified physician or one of our experienced staff members can help determine which is which. The treatment for your symptoms depends quite a bit on whether it is the flu or just a cold. Our highly experienced staff at AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove can test you for the flu to determine the best treatment for you.
If flu-like symptoms begin to appear or if you have spent time around someone who has come down with the flu, come to our walk-in urgent care center for testing and possible medical care. Our clinic is open seven days a week with no appointment needed, and we have weekend hours as well. Our board-certified doctors can help diagnose you and prepare a treatment for you. Avoid using a sick day from work to seek medical attention. Come to our location when it works for your schedule, and we’ll be ready to treat you.
