High temperature, chills, headachesIf you have a fever, chills, and a headache, you may have the flu. You may also have a dry cough, and feel tired and nauseous. Flu could lead to severe complications, so go to your doctor right away. It is highly infectious, so go away and spare your officemates the misery.
Sore throat, sneezing, stuffy noseIf you have a sore throat, are sneezing and have a stuffy nose, you probably have a cold.
You may also have a headache, a hacking cough, and may feel tired. But while a cold is milder than the flu, it is still infectious, and can easily be passed on to your work colleagues.Go home right away and take lots of water.
Aches and painsDoes a part of your body hurt through injury - did you sprain or twist something, and are heroically waiting for it to pass?
You might actually be aggravating the injury by soldiering on and going to work.
If the pain persists, you should see a doctor, to make sure that you are not making the injury worse.
Your co-workers may not be affected, but your aching body will be grateful.
I am blogging this because I am not feeling ok. I suffer from headache, stuffy nose, sneezing and cough. Good thing, today is a holiday. I will not worry about spreading the virus in the office :-)
