“It’s just influenza, Mr Soames.”
“Just influenza! I‘ve got a dreadful headache. It’s right over this eye.”
“You can get a dreadful headache with influenza.”
“I am sure I’ve got sinusitis, doctor.”
“You may be right, Mr Soames. People often get sinusitis with influenza.”
“Don’t I need something for it?”
“Not, really. The influenza will certainly get better on it’s own and sinusitis usually does.”

It’s just influenza, Mr Soames.
