Who has had the flu?

I was told by an ER doc today that I have the flu. My symptoms have been mild fever, cough, runny nose, sneezing, tiredness. I thought when you had the flu you felt like you were run over or something?
My main complaint has been chest pain hence the reason I went to the ER but they didn't find anything serious and just gave me cough medicine and told me to follow up with my doctor next week.
Ugh, I'm confused. Can anyone help? I am really concerned because I have 3 young kids. 10 months, 4 years and 6 years old. My 6 year old has asthma.
Can the flu be mild like this or do you think it just hasn't hit me that hard?

Re: Who has had the flu?

I personally think the worst is yet to come if the dr told you that you have the flu. I hope hope HOPE for your sake that this IS the worst of it. I only have one and was down for 7 days....COULD NOT get out of bed if the house was on fire! Good luck!
