Q: Is There A Flu Virus Going Around?

I have been coughing horribly for over a week, along with a pain in my eye so bad I am not able to wear contacts. The thing is the symptoms come & go. I will feel better one day & the next it hits again.

There are always flu viruses going around. If your asking if the main strain has a specific name, no.
