There is a huge difference between influenza and the common cold. You probably have the common cold. Influenze has more symptoms:
- high fever (like 102 or more)
- extreme body aches, like you are praying to god to let you die
- upper respiratory infection
- you are sick for at least 2 weeks
Common cold doesn't have the high fever, chills, diarrhea and vomiting and the body aches aren't as bad. It also doesn't last as long.
