Could intermittent fever and cough be symptoms of flu?

My husband has been running a fever off & on since Thursday morning. Lots of aches & pains. Deep cough, nothing being coughed up. Was on the verge of pneumonia in August. Upset stomach if he eats anything. Thinking he might have the flu that is affecting people s breathing but not sure when we should have him checked by a doctor. If the temp is still there tomorrow, should he go in?

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your concern, if this is chronic condition then investigation need to be done and this may includes blood test and x-ray of chest and if this not the chronic condition then this could be due to viral fever then this can be managed with symptomatic medicines no need to worry about this, take care.
