Had my flu jab on Tuesday, GP assured me I must have it because of my asthma and other problems and thought my RA would not be affected. Anyway, I got up Thursday and felt so so sick, this lasted for two days. My gland under the left arm (same side as jab) has swollen so much it is hanging like an apple and my RA has gone into overdrive. My elbows and jaw are the worst, very hot and swollen and I generally feel awful. I have heard that other people have been reporting quite severe fallout from flu jabs this year, and I would be pleased if any on our group have experienced problems. I was told to not take normal MTX injection this week so have done as told! Lynda x
