When you have either a cold or the flu, you're likely to have a stuffy nose, fatigue, and a cough. But colds have certain symptoms that the flu typically doesn't, and vice versa. One key difference is fever: You may have a low-grade fever with a cold (below 102 degrees Fahrenheit), but higher fevers tend to go along with the flu. The flu is also likely to cause chills and sweats, nausea, severe body aches, and loss of appetite, none of which happen with the common cold.
