Hi David, sorry to hear you're not well. Try not to do too much too soon. Let the abs get to work & hopefully you'll feel better in a few days.

I had my flu jab today & my arm feels really tender & a bit stiff. I'm sure it will be ok in a couple of days with a few paracetamol to help.

Get well soon 🌸

So strange - the flu jab had an effect on me this year too! Felt like I had the flu! Although it passed very quickly, it left me (I think it's down to that!) with a flare up of joint pain and rash which is connected to my autoimmune condition. Not nice. Hope you're better soon xx

David, when you have recovered enough, please get a flu shot - it is so important that people like us with lung disease avoid getting the flu.
