On day 14.  Just coming off of 2 1/2 days of some pretty bad flu symptoms. I don't seem to find fever cited as being a carb flu symptom and I had a fairly intense dose of that.  Is it possible I went through a carb flu spell or was it more likely a "regular" flu spell, given the feverish period?  My diet was extremely poor prior to this and I am 44 years old.

It's likely that you are coming off a real illness flu or otherwise. "Carb flu" is not a real illness so you would not have a fever. It does describe some other symptoms similar to the flu like fatigue, headaches, when transitioning from a higher carb diet.

OK thanks.  I kind of figured that but then reading about others coming down with the carb flu on week two made me wonder.  I'll chalk it up to coincidence.
