Got a flu shot on Tuesday and it knocked me on my butt. Had to miss work yesterday. Anybody else have trouble? Usually I can't even tell I got one.

Perhaps you were getting sick already and it hit just after your shot. What kind of reaction do you mean?

Inflamed injection site, fever, burning joints, lethargy, etc........felt so bad i couldn't move and my arm was too sore to raise. They checked me for fever before the shot and I didn't have one, but I did have a runny nose. Usually, I have no reaction at all. Hubby had the same problem. I checked around and read where the batch was a little stronger this time. More people had similar reactions. Seems that the variant of virus they used caused a stronger reaction.

Much better today, but still only about 70% OK.

So sorry the shot made you and your husband sick. We've all had the shot, each from a different location,
with no problem except i had a small rash for a few days where i was injected.
I hope you're both soon back to 100% Hug

Good grief, lmm...that's awful! They'll give me a flu shot when five of them hold me down. Wink I hate needles, hate!

Have never had a flu shot, I know I should with the number of people I am exposed to, but rarely get sick.

We had ours yesterday and hubs and I had a pneumonia shot as well. The UNA student nurses were giving the kids' flu shots at the clinic. They did a nice job and I am always amazed at how different they are from each other. One sat there and the other cried and her arm hurt all evening. The one who didn't seem bothered gets allergy shots, so perhaps it wasn't a big a deal to her. We all definitely have pain tolerance levels that are unique to us. scratch
