I would really appreciate anybody’s thoughts on the matter as I doubt my situation is wholly unique.
Your note caught my attention because we have had a similar experience, but with totally different problems.
Over thirty years ago I was given an experimental "live" flu vaccine. That night I had the very first asthma attack of my life, and it was a bad one. I wound up in the hospital for ten days.
When I came home from the hospital I found out "very quickly" that there were many things that could set off my newly developed asthma. Although my cats never gave me any health problems before this, I could not get close to them without suffering from asthma. I had to get rid of my cats.
I've had allergy shots, acupuncture treatments and changes to my lifestyle and environment, and my allergy problems are almost completely under control. But it was a long journey. Back then the asthma meds had horrible side effects.
Although I have posted my tale of "flu vaccine woe" several times over the years, I have never found anyone else with the same experience. Good luck with your research and have a Happy New Year!
