Last Friday I got my pneumonia shot which I reacted to all weekend with heat, swelling, and big red welts. Monday I got my flue shot in the other arm, and reacted to it also! Within 6 hrs I was coughing, sneezing, stuffed up, and my eyes were red, swollen, burning, and itching. I had to go home from work at lunch. I had taken a Benedryl, but it did nothing. I took my son's Alkaseltzer cough and cold. When I went to bed, I couldn't breath at all through my nose. When I woke up, I felt almost normal. Am going back to work tonight. Weird, but am gad I only have sore arms today!!!
