I had the flu shot in November 2002 and since that time I have never been the same. Tired, muscle aches, low grade fever constantly. Depressed because I don't know myself anymore. I had gotten the shot because during college I grew extremely sick with a bad virus and was hospitalized for one week. I recovered like a charm from this episode. In JUly 2002 I had a bad virus which took the wind out of my sails, but nothing compared to the flu shot reaction. It's been a hellish road-quit my dream job, had to move in with my parents, etc. Some docs think it might be lyme disease, but my blood tests come back negative. I did have a rash on my foot, it went away although anytime I take a shower it turns bright red. Any advice/experiences with the flu shot? Or lyme? Thanks, I am in need of some input ASAP. It's been tough lately and I feel myself running out of hope.
