2. Fatigue

Most people with influenza B feel tired and weak as the body mounts its defense and uses its resources to fight off the virus. Fatigue may persist even after other symptoms abate. Bed rest, hydration and eating healthy foods can help combat fatigue.

If an adult with flu symptoms experiences severe weakness or dizziness, seek medical advice. Immediate medical care is also necessary if a child or an adult suffering from influenza B is difficult to rouse, exhibits confusion or is not alert.5‘Flu Symptoms & Complications.’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 31 Aug. 2020, www.cdc.gov/flu/symptoms/symptoms.htm.
