these pains were usually when I had been exposed to a virus.Then 2yrs ago they started getting worse and I went back to my dr who arranged more blood tests and gave me the flu jab ,I have had one for yrs since I was hopitalised for 3mths with a mistery virus. Since being diagnosed I now think that I actually had a really bad flair brought on by the virus, most of the symptoms I had at the time I now get on really bad days.anyway it left me with compramised liver function, hence the flu jab. 24hrs after the jab I was in agony with electric shock like pains,they would ease of if I kept still but then build up in my muscles untill I had to move then the shocks would start again. I had had them before when I had that virus. and they had stopped by the next day and gone altogether within a couple of months,So when I had them after the jab I thought that they would soon be gone. Instead I was left with pain so bad that I could not get out of bed without help or even lift my arms high enough to scratch my cheek.Gradually,over the last 2yrs the pain has settled down to a barable level, But I swore I would never have another jab. Now my doc has dropped a bomb shell in that if I do get flu I will almost certainly end up in hospital,possibly icu with liver problems. So do I have the jab and pray that It was not that, that made me so ill and take the chance that it doesn`t leave me in severe pain for another 2yrs and maybe end up worse than I am now or do I hope that my immune system continues to protect me.I havn`t even had a cold for 6yrs plus the fact that I am at low risk both my hubby and son have both had their jabs and I seldom go out to catch it from some where else.help I know that I have to make the descision on my own but would appreciate your thoughts on this....sue
