And to prove it there are now lots of Man Flu Novelty Gifts available in the UK to help us men overcome it. Girls, you probably don’t understand what man flu is because the ladies flu strain is considerably weaker.
What is Man Flu?
Man Flu is a serious condition that only affects the male population. Men have a different genetic design to women and the virus only attacks those parts. Higher levels of testosterone in men lower their immune system, which the man flu then targets. So whilst women may catch the same influenza virus it will react in their bodies differently. The woman’s immune system fights the virus more effectively resulting in the woman getting only a few minor sniffs and coughs. Typically though women are twice as likely to call in sick when these sniffles occur. When Man flu strikes the man it’s a different ball game.
What are the Man Flu Symptoms?
The man flu strikes men down in their stride and limits them to only being able to walk a few metres from the couch at a time. Normally this is to get the remote or take a wee. Women will normally scoff and make man flu jokes at this point. Men can be diagnosed if the following man flu symptoms are present. They will be suffering with extreme dizziness, sore heads, sweating, horrendously sore throat, runny nose and general weakness. His sore head will also be hurting his eyes and therefore he will be required to watch plenty of sport to cure it. Men are twice as likely as women to just ‘power through it’ and won’t pull a sickie unless it’s a case of Ultimate Man Flu.
