The flu is a serious medical condition that sometimes requires emergency care. If you or a loved one experiences difficulty breathing, sudden onset of dizziness, abdominal pain, or confusion, it’s important to seek emergency care right away. Another severe flu symptom is vomiting that is persistent and prevents you from keeping fluids down.
