The flu is hitting Tennessee hard.

According to a local doctor Tennessee is in the top ten in the country for the disease.

“This appears to be one of the worst ones we’ve seen in the last probably ten years. A lot of early cases, earlier in the season than what we normally see,”  said Dr. Chad Kurzynske at Hermitage Primary Care.

Dr. Kurzynske said both children and adults coming in with the flu.

“Right now we’ll you know  see one or two a day, but when we get into December, January, march I’ll personally see 3 or 4 flu cases a day.”

Kurzynske said the key is to catch those warning signs early.

 “Fever and severe myalgias, headache, those symptoms are really significant triggers to say, could this be the flu.” FULL STORY HERE
