I had MMR 5 days ago and the day after which,I developed fever. Up to now, the 5th day, I am having febrile episodes. Most annoying among the side effects is the joint pains I feel! I also developed some cough, colds,muscle aches and even had itchy soles and palms 2 days ago. I even felt that my eating chicken and fish exacerbated the itchiness. I have observed my upper lip swell a bit too. It has now subsided though. For now, the allergic reaction has abated but the joint pain and fever still ensues.

I just am taking Paracetamol(as prescribed ) round the clock q 4 hours and lots of fluids. However, I cannot rest well yet as I need to keep moving for some important matters I have to attend to.=(

ANybody on the same boat post MMR shot?

Does your doctor know this? Make sure you get seen, this is a vaccine reaction, and should be reported to VAERS. I hope you are feeling better soon.

It sounds like your side effects are due to you being allergic to one or more ingredients in the vaccine. Your doctor should make a note of this. The MMR vaccine is a LIVE vaccine and some fever and soreness at the injection site are normal but what you describe is beyond that.

I waited to have my daughter immunized with the MMR until she was 4. About the 9-13th day mark she had a high fever and the Dr. said it was not related, but according to the printout it is a reaction and I feel her personality changed. I do not think it is autism, but I knew to wait on this vac. Here in the states they give it about 18 months old and I'm REALLY glad I waited for my Dtr.
