Flu shot reactions
An_254312 posted:
I had a flu shot given at my workplace about 10 days ago. I felt a slight headache within the hour after the shot. Then I felt achy and cramps on my arm where the shot was administered. I also felt really sleepy and tired, and even asked someone else to drive my car since I thought I'd fall asleep at the wheel. The following days I also had some chest pains which went away after I took Tylenol. I am healthy and a runner. I think this season's flu shots have some really serious issues in terms of its formulation and additives.
