Do you have a cold or the flu?

If you have a cold (estar resfriado) you will probably have a blocked or stuffy nose (congestión nasal), a headache (dolor de cabeza), a sore throat (dolor de garganta) and a cough (tos).

If you have the flu (tener la gripe), apart from these symptoms, you will have a temperature (fiebre), your muscles will ache (dolor muscular) and you will feel exhausted (estar agotado) and your family doctor will probably sign you off work (darte la baja por enfermedad).
