I've never reacted much to vaccines before, except for a sore arm. I had both jabs on my right arm yesterday afternoon and by late evening, I was shivering violently and nauseous, with bad pain down to my fingers and up/down to my hips. After a rough night, I felt ok to go to work today if I kept painkillers topped up.
By now, 30 hours after the jabs, I feel really awful again and there's a hard, visible lump on my arm. Is this fairly normal/do I just need to wait this out?
You should have been given a sheet with contra indications on it. I’m sure it’s within the normal range but have a read to reassure yourself.
Thw sheets list symptoms but not severity. Not sure if I'm just being a wuss...
I had the 'flu jab about a month ago and it hit me like a mallet.
Spent several weeks with what I thought was an average cold and felt incredibly weak and crappy.
Today been diagnosed with pneumonia.
Had to call in sick to wotk for tomorrow snd Sunday which I hate doing and loses me about £250 in wages.
Proper pissed off. I only did it because I work with vulnerable adults and wanted to protect them but have left them short staffed for 26 hours over the weekend instead.
Everything aches. Even my fingertips.
