I've had a dry throat for a couple of days and yesterday I had a temperature and felt really tired, like you do when you're ill and you can barely move your whole body. Feeling a bit better today but still really wiped. I thought it might have been carb flu as I'm doing low carb except for the temperature.

Anyone had this?

How low carb? You need carbs. Not having them can make you poorly.

WTAF is carb flu?
IIRC, not eating carbs to a drastic degree causes your body to start breaking something essential down. Can't for the life of me remember what though.

It leads to ketones in the blood ripsishere. Even 90g carbs a day is considered low.
