    Flu Shot & Vertigo
    chip1958 posted:
    I received a flu shot at work last thursday at 3pm woke up friday morning with severe vertigo and vomiting, I have had vertigo in the past but only lasted a few hours or quickly off and on, This is day 6 I am still not back at work, the vomiting has subsided but the dizziness has not, I can't walk straight, the dizziness now is only when I stand and try to walk, but don't understand why it has gone on for so long. On day 3 I went to the ER because I had slept or vomited non stop for 3 days, and then on day 4 went to an ENT Dr. I told him about the flu shot and he said he would not rule it out that this is the problem. Hopefully in another day or two I will be better enough to drive,I can say at this point I have taken my last flu shot.
