is this flu?

My son woke up in the night(he is 14) and was throwing up. He has a stuffy nose and scratchy throat. His temp has ranged from 101.6-102.5 and I am having a hard time lowering it thru medications(tylenol and ibuprofen). He says he is so achy and tired and has a hard time moving about. He has thrown up twice now and feels nausaus(not sure how to spell it). he has a cough also. It came on real fast and I would be more certain it was the flu if there was no vomting. I don't know if I have heard that can be part of flu or not. Second thought was some type of problems with foodpoisoning causing this. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: is this flu?

When the news came out about the flu epidemic in Colorado, I believe I read an article in which several people had also complained about vomiting and bowel problems in addition to their flu. The articles were very clear on how "stomach" flu is something complete different from influenza. Maybe it's a side effect of one's body fighting the virus. Maybe the headache or fever from the flu is causing nausea.
