Sudden onset of body aches, fatigue and chills. On day 3 of feeling incredibly weak and run-down. Complete loss of appetite. Could this be flu?

In brief: Flu?

Yes, it may very well be the flu.
Early diagnosis permits early treatment with a product like tamiflu (oseltamivir). Also, early detection may allow for treatment to reduce the severity and communicability of the virus.

In brief: Yes

Sounds like flu especially if there is fever.
One should see their dr if they are not feeling stronger within a few days after the onset of such an illness since other possibilities do exist.
