I recieved a flu shot about 37 hours ago and

I recieved a flu shot about 37 hours ago and started having pain in my arm after about 5 hours. It got progressively worse very quickly and ibuprofen and Aleve did not take care of it at all. I have never been in such pain and I delivered 10 babies! I lost the use of that arm in a couple of hours and the pain is affecting my whole shoulder, arm, neck, head, & collar bone. Is this what I must look forward to when I choose to get a flu shot? Will this pain ever go away completely?

Hi: About two hours ago I took one Tylenol for a slight headache and I don t have a fever. I would like to go and get a flu shot. Would the Tylenol have any adverse reaction with the flu shot. I don t think it would but want to make sure. Thank you, Eric

Received flu shot 12 days ago. 50 hours later, strong fatigue, super sensitive skin, fever over 101.4-102.6 for 48 hours. No congestion, phlegm,drips,etc. 3rd day, finally broke fever,3 times, then by Sunday was feeling pretty good. Did a little outdoor work, then got very dizzy and blacked out. Temp back up over 100 for 24 hours. Finally several good days, back to usual workload. Last night 8th day, temp back up over 101. Tonight back up to 102. I have HBP (Enaperel .1 daily). Also on thyroid replacement (no gland) .25. Am very sensitive to many drugs, but have been taking 1 exstrength Tylenol to keep temp down. Any ideas?

I may or may not have the flu, I got my flu shot about 6 days ago. I only got about 5 hours of sleep last night so maybe my body wasn t healthy enough to fight whatever was left in the system. I have an on and off bad headache and thrown up a little bit (inside my mouth). Took a nap and felt better but now I fell sick again.
