So I got a flu shot Thursday and just like every year my arm is red with a welt.<br>(sorry for pic quality, I had to go to a low light room to get a mirror and it is not easy to take a pic of your arm and hold still)<br>This time though it is like tendonitis clear down to my wrist. I have had to take ibuprofen & tylenol. Does anyone else ever have this much soreness? I never get the flu though. This red bump you see is hard and feels hot. Yuch, glad I don't have to work. I couldn't even hardly type last night. Sucks to be me right now.<br><br>Cheers, iRock<br>"Even though Mac Users may be only 10% of the market, always remember that we are the TOP 10%"<br>-Douglas Adams
Yikes!<br><br>I swear by these shots...for some reason, I have yet to get even a cold since having them (6-7 years).<br><br>I always have a sore arm the next day, but not like yours...did you have a new nurse? <br><br>Ouch!<br><br>

The last time I had a flu shot, within 1 week I hadt the flu and missed 6 days of work. So I guess the flu shot worked. During the past 5 years I have not had the shot and I have not had the flu. Makes ya think...<br><br>Too Easy!
Ouch! That looks painful. Sorry you have that reaction to the shot. I have it yearly but never have I had anything resembling that reaction. Don't know that I'd get the shot if I did!<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Everyone I know who got the flu shot got sick for several days from it. I never had a flu shot and have never been sick for more than a day and a half. And they tell you to get them every year - I'll pass.<br><br>
Since I am normally around so many people, there is no doubt I would get sick without a flu shot. <br><br>Schools are the worse...just think when you walk up or down the stairs and you hold onto the handrail, how many people may of had the flu...I get the flu without the flu shot...and it was always on Thanksgiving (US) or Christmas...never failed.<br><br>
I am with you.<br>I never had a flu shot and I only get sick like once every 2 years.<br>A friend of mine the shot every flu season and it works for him, however he always gets sick when its not flu season go figure.<br><br>
