Seventy-two hours after getting the flu shot, I had joint pain and ankle pain just on the left side exactly where she gave the shot. They tried to tell me I had a slipped disc and back problems, and I had x-rays. I'm thinking it was a bad batch. I wonder what the next move is, 3 weeks later I'm still in bed.

I was coerced into getting a flu shot as I am chronically asthmatic, most terrible decision ever. I had incredible pain, uncontrollable shivering, intense headache, intense breathing problems, worse than having the flu by far, the medical establishment says they're a good idea, avoid at all cost!
