My doctor wants me to get a flu shot and I probably should cause I have kids...but I am terrified that it will make the Fibro flare up. Has anyone here had a flu shot yet ? And if so, was there any reaction ? Thanks !!!!
I'm one of the lucky people. I have only had the flu 1 time in my life (knocking on wood)
The shot scares me for some reason and I feel that taking it for myself isn't necessary.
I'm more comfortable taking my chances. If the flu strikes me 2 years in a row, then I'd give it some serious consideration.

Hi tanasmom, If I were you I would get the flu shot., I have fibromyalgia and I got it last month you are already sick with fibro so why not play it safe and get it so you do not wind up getting sick with the flu aching and pain. I had no reaction to the flu shot I get one every year.
