As you are probably well aware, flu season arrives without fail once a year through fall to late winter. While the flu affects thousands of people annually, it is extremely difficult to find an all-in-one cure as it is a virus that appears in slightly different variations each season. Not only is the flu different from year to year, but there are multiple rounds to every flu season that may come with different versions of the virus that affect people in varying ways.

Each season, the flu is divided into four categories know as flu A, B, C, and D. Flu A is generally considered the most dangerous. It appears early in the season and tends to get the most people sick. However, sometimes, including during the 2019-2020 year, flu B becomes equally, if not more, impactful. When flu B is more dangerous than usual, flu season has the potential to stretch out for a much longer time, creating a risk for people contracting it through late spring.

1. Fatigue

Often one of the first signs of flu, fatigue, is a vague but uncomfortable feeling that can affect a person’s entire body. Fatigue is an intense feeling of weakness. The affected person may lose all motivation and energy to do anything other than sit down or lay in bed. As with most flu symptoms, it may be different in each person that experiences it and can range from mild to severe depending on the individual case.

One important thing to keep in mind when discussing flu symptoms is that just because a person is suffering from some symptoms but not others does not mean that they do not have the flu. Since there is such a long list of symptoms, that most people will suffer from a handful of them while not noticing others. When trying to self-diagnose feelings of being sick, it is also important to consider other factors that could be causing the symptoms. For example, fatigue on its own may also be caused by a lack of sleep or a poor diet.
