FLU!!!!!! I'm actually home sick with the flu right now, and I'm completely miserable. When I was younger, I would get strep about every month. It sucked. I eventually got my tonsils removed and I haven't had strep since!
Flu! Strep is bad but flu is a step down from mono. You literally feel like crap and so exhausted, like you ran an ironman and will be really hot and sweating and then you will freeze and shiver like your in a freezer, but your wrapped up....it FREAKIN sucks!
Well let's see, flu symptoms include body aches, headaches, high fever, fatigue, and chills. Strep symptoms are basically all of that plus someone punches you in the throat a thousand times and then forces you to swallow glass.
