MMR and polio long will whining last?

dd had these on Thursday, since then, weepy, clingy, whiney...not eating, says at various points she feels ill, but can't put her finger on what exactly is wrong, varies from sore throat, sore tummy, can't breathe (she can, it's just the crying that gets her all panicky....)
Any ideas? She doesn't have a temp or anything, she's just's her last 2 days at nursery Monday and Tuesday (forever) and she really doesn't want to miss them, but if she's like this klingon child still, I can't inflict her on them!

Why did thy give her the polio booster at the same time as the mmr????

The immunisations nurse at our practise told me that the mmr should be given by itself and there should be a months wait before any other immunisations.

Have you given her any calpol? Even without a temp it could make her feel pretty rough.

Thanks for answering- I'm in Italy and bizarrely, a cocktail of jabs seems totally ordinary- in fact, dd was booked in for HepB and polio but the doctor said she hadn't got a consignment of hepB opened shock so would do the MMR instead!
Am dosing her up on calpol and TLC....dp is beside himself and wants to rush off to ER but I don't quite think we're at that stage yet!

Hope she's feeling better soon!

Well, she's off to nursery today, I think she'll forget her aches and pains once she gets there.....
