I had the flu shot in November 2002. I believe this has been my downfall, unless lyme or something else not found after viles and viles of blood tests is to blame. When I got the shot I had already been feeling sort of out of it. The days after the vaccine I had fever, stiffness, muscle aches--a flu. Since November 2002 I have never felt like me. Some weeks are better than others, but 5 mile runs are no longer part of my rotuine. More importantly, for the last 5 months the doctors ignore the topic of innoculation dangers. So frustrating. Has anyone experienced this? And does anyone know when I can expect to be done with this reaction? One doctor said "if indeed it was the flu shot, perhaps once the antigens expire, so by November of 2003." I am on doxy right to in case stuff turns out to be lyme...but the flu shot is something I can't rule out as being the source of my misery.
