Lubbock Residents Face Flu & Cold Season At Once

A month ago, the Health Department called the flu widespread across Texas with Lubbock mildly affected. So what's the bug that seems to be steam-rolling its way through Lubbock now?

The Health Department says it's probably not the flu, but it's hard to get an accurate flu count because physicians don't always report the cases they see and patients may stay at home and treat themselves.

If you're trying to decide what bug is floating through your house the Health Department says flu symptoms come fast in the form of fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose and body aches.

Doctors also say that a cold generally stays in the head and the flu makes you ache everywhere and feel very tired.
