Lesser Known Flu Symptoms: Muscle aches

Viruses can cause several common diseases: cold, flu, and chicken pox and some rarer illnesses: HIV, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD disease), and polio. Vaccines and improved hygiene measures have lessened the severity and the rate of some of these, but others: the common cold and flu, still plague humans annually. Determining the exact virus causing an illness is the first step in any office visit for viral symptoms. A physician will ask the patient about his symptoms before running any other tests. Often flu symptoms: muscle aches, fever, headache and upper respiratory problems will help the doctor to choose the best course of treatment to follow.
