Wednesday at a reg. checkup my dr told me I needed shots updated - flu, pneumonia, and tetanus. I said okay, but feared side effects from the flu shot. She said there are no live cultures in their shots, so I won't get sick. Well I did. Thursday morning I woke with bad chills and fever, and every muscle in my body screaming. My whole upper arm was hot and swollen and hurt very much. Friday was just as bad, and my fever didn't break til Friday night. This morning I finally felt human again, my poor arm (injection site) is still red and swollen.
I called the doctor Thursday a.m. and they said some people react that way. Had I known I would have gotten this sick, I would have opted out of the flu shot.
Is this happening to any one else?
