Flu shot and lyme

I am a recovering lymie Treating the disease for past 2 years (had chronic lyme dating back to 1976 and reinfecting 2 yrs ago) and finally in the last 5 months have seen excellent recovery. The face twitching is gone, vertigo, dizzy spells, tremor and many other symptoms (too many to list). Not all symptoms are gone, but I am functioning so I am pleased. Now that I am not taking any more meds, supplements, I am wondering about the flu shot. I am so worried about putting something into my body after all I've been through. I never want to get any of those bad things back like dizzy, tremor, etc. Has anyone gotten the flu shot in my situation and did it make you sick or bring back any of the lyme issues. I know lyme is truly never gone from the system, but I don't want to aggravate it either. Thanks.
