Are flu like symptoms such as body aches and aching eyes symptoms of pregnancy because you have heard flu like symptoms can happen in pregnancy?
You may have body aches but aching eyes would not be a typical symptom of pregnancy. Usually when it is said that you might have flu-like symptoms with pregnancy, it is referring more to the malaise, unexplained fatigue, and nausea and vomiting (such as with "stomach flu"), not the upper respiratory symptoms like cough, sneeze, sore throat, runny nose, watery eyes and high fever.

Do pregnancy symptoms include headaches dizzyness and flu-like symptoms and body aches fatigue and strong cramping and dry mouth?
Answer . \nIt's difficult to tell and you should be checked out by a doctor. If you are on any type of medications please look it up on the internet to find out what the s…ide effects are. Some medications can cause dry mouth, dizzyness, weakness, shakiness, upset tummy, etc. If you still have your periods it's highly doubtful you are pregnant. Please see your doctor. You could have other problems such as thryoid problems or simply the flu.

Re: aching in hands . but, it CAN be early arthiritis(though minor-one...)
Many viruses cause similar symptoms to those of the flu, and the complex of general symptoms of the flu can also be common in other infectious diseases or other non-infectious… conditions. Many viral infections and flu-like illnesses cause similar symptoms to those caused by influenza viruses. These are often present in viral gastroenteritis ("stomach flu"), and the common cold, for example. Sometimes these symptoms can come from other and non-infectious conditions, such as early pregnancy, allergies, toxic chemical exposure, etc. The symptoms might include: headache, nausea, malaise, fatigue, cough, body aches, fever, and dizziness, to name only a few of the more common symptoms that are referred to as flu-like. See the related questions below for more complete lists of cold and flu symptoms.
I have had moderate body aches and chills with no fever or other flu like symptoms. What are some possibilities?

Have had flu like symptoms body aches runny nose bad cough now my left side of throat hurts when i swallow is that just part of flu?
Yes, all common flu symptoms. You probably have a swollen gland on the left side of your thoat (neck). Warm honey and lemon tea will help it.
What if you were having symptoms of pregnancy like stomach ache feet ache breast pain from last 12days and suddenly you have periods?
Then you're not pregnant. Those are just PMS symptoms (except foot pain, which isn't really a pregnancy symptom either until about 32+ weeks)
What you're experiencing could be a sign of pregnancy, but there's a lot more to it. Have you had a period recently or could you be getting ready to start? I know I get diarrh…ea and sharp stomach pains 2 WEEKS before my period and it lasts until my period is over. It could also be food poisoning or a stomach virus. I strongly encourage you to contact your doctor if pain and diarrhea persist.
Rest, drink plenty of clear fluids and get to a Dr if no improvement in 24-48 hours.
A flu-like symptom is a disease condition that is similar to what can be seen in people who have the flu - it doesn't mean you have the flu, just a symptom of flu. These flu-l…ike symptoms can include muscle aches, joint aches, running nose, congestion, watery eyes and coughing.
Yes back ache can be a symptom of pregnancy but can also be mistaken for period back aches. Most common notice of pregnancy is a missed period. Back ache will begin to happen …when your stomache becomes heavier and is making room for your new baby, the spine begines to change shape so that there is enough room for your baby to grow.
Flu and pregnancy are obviously 2 different situations all tho they do have similar symptoms such as nauseation,vomiting, "hot flashes, no appetite and so forth. If you missed… a period or think you may be pregnant take a test or see your doctor. Hope this helps
Every woman is different. So are her experiences of pregnancy.Not every woman has the same symptoms or even the same symptomsfrom one pregnancy to the next.

In Cold and Flu
Canine influenza has many of the same symptoms in dogs as influenza does in humans: sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, a cough, muscle and joint aches (usually seen as a decre…ase in energy and more laying around/sleeping), and a fever. Also like in humans, the vast majority of dogs will recover on their own given a warm place to sleep and good quality food and water.
