Had bad reaction to flu shot anybody else?

I got a flu shot 5 days ago and have like crap since.
My temp is up and down, had nausea muscle pain and really bad back/ kidney pain. I dont have a uti or stones it only happened after this shot.
There have to be more people who get sick from this??

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Yeah, that's normal.

    From what I've been told by nurses when I ask about it, they explain it as building your immune system, because essentially the flu shot has tiny amounts of a previous flu virus, which is why some of us experience discomfort for a few days. However, if the symptoms last for more than a week or gets worse, go to the ER.

    • I work at a school and I'm exposed to kids, 4th grade - 12th grade every day. I would say I get exposed to any kind of flu there happens to be that year, so my immune system is good enough. I don't need more exposure lol.

  • I have had 2 in my life. Got sick both years but not directly after it.

    To me, they don't seem to make any discernable difference, so I won't bother with them again.

  • If you do not get the flu shot, you might get sick.
    If you get a flu shot, you WILL get sick.

    It is best to not get it unless you have several days afterwards to feel like you have been eaten by a wolf then shit over a cliff.

  • That's why I dont get shots. I dont want to get sick. If I dont get a shot then I only probably get sick each year.

    This winter so far I haven't gotten gotten sick. Last time I got sick 3 times. Last time I got a shot I got sick twice

  • I dunno, I tend to be too lazy to get the flu shot.
