| | Really sick/fatiged after h1n1 vaccine
I foolishly got the h1n1 swine flu vaccine the last week in December 2010.
2 wks later the overwhelming fatigue forced me to go to bed almost 24/7 and mind you, fall into a deep, sound sleep (not at all like me, my natural nature is to be hyperactive) Went to local internist who gave me a 5 day z-pack...didn't help me at all-ran a temp all through this - called dr's office to say I was no better, he sent me to the E.R. hospital where they could
'do more testing.' Did that - they tested for nothing & dismissed me. I am an R.A. patient - my sister-in-law took me to see my RA doctor b/c she was so concerned b/c now my lungs were involved - my R.A. doctor admitted me on the spot to the hospital (fever of unexplained origin and the wheezing)
Long story short- 7 days in the hospital with Infectious disease Doctor heading up the list of all the doctors who had anything to do with me - refused a Bone Marrow test UNTIL they promised to sedate me.....
Bottom line? They found nothing - yet I'm still terribly exhausted, fatigued, running the occasional low grade temp (they did get rid of that in the hospital) was involved with a hematologist who said I was anemic...
And yet here I am, no better....ANYONE?
