You awake to a stuffy head, pressure behind your cheekbones and that annoying post-nasal drip. Or, after doing yard work or taking a hike through the woods, you notice a patch of raised bumps and blisters on your arm. Important deadlines are looming at work and your kids have to go to basketball practice. Plus, the last thing you want to do is to sit in a waiting room full of people who are coughing, sneezing and contagious. Good news. Thanks to AnMed Health’s E-Visits, a consultation with a health care provider for minor health concerns no longer requires a trip to the doctor’s office or urgent care.

You wake up and you’ve got a cough, a sore throat and a stuffy nose. You feel a little achy, too, and you think you may have a bit of a fever. You are tired and you don’t want to drag yourself out of bed. Yes, it’s that time of year again – cold and flu season. But which do you have? Is it the dreaded flu or just a common cold? Both are viral respiratory illnesses. They have similar symptoms. But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some telltale signs can help you differentiate them.
