By Wed I had huge inflammation in my thumbs By Thursday I had swollen, inflamed feet, right knee and left wrist and thumb. Danger of the flue shot if you have auto immune disease. Ultrasound found large mountains of
Inflammation on my tendons, leading
To yet another "I just
Want you out of my office" diagnosis, fifth or so, since I became and old man overnight seven years ago. Anyway warning on the flu shot

Sorry to hear that you're having that kind of reaction to the shot. Hope you feel better soon!

I avoid shots like the plague.

Did they give you a steroid shot?

Might have to happen, Doc. Gonna give NSAIDS two more days.

Sounds more immune mediated meaning NSIADS won't help much. They will help for the discomfort but not so much for the immune rxn itself.

Since i know what ya got to work with, I'm thinking DMSO and that horse steroid that starts with a "B" I think. My right knee is twice the size of my left, acl operation .

How are you holding up? Don't want you becoming a statistic for the "flu shot has mind control chips in it" conspiracy.

Hope you're doing better today, bigsky.

Got my annual flu shot today, along with my wife and oldest son. Daughter that works in hospital is required to get hers early; daughter at U of Alabama got hers a couple of weeks ago (free/nursing students gave them). Wife took two youngest in last week to get theirs (11 year old got the mist instead.)
