    I got my seasonal flu shot today (not H1N1) at noon. Came home and took a nap. Woke up at 4pm, feeling like crud. Fever, aches, chills. It was an inactivated form, not live.

    How long will this last? I have 3 quilts on and I am shivering myself silly.... ugh

    It usually takes a couple of hours for the zombie transformation to complete.

    Quote:24 hours IMO ... Its how long mine lasted. But the h1n1 I got before the shots and it was 2 weeks or so for flu and bronchitis to go away.

    So, I am better off with this yuckiness than the flu itself? I will try to keep that in mind while I am shivering myself to death. My teeth chattered til they hurt....

    I refuse to get any flu shots..so many people get sick when they do. That
    just doesnt seem right to me to go get a shot that makes you sick. I hope
    you feel better soon.

    I think so... better to get a light dose than full blown... The shivers were the thing that drove me crazy when I had the swine flu. I about threw my back out shivering and shaking the 5th night in. I heard today that anyone with the flu at this point they are considering them to have the swine flu because the seasonal flu hasn't hit yet? [​IMG] all I know is the hospitals have been extra careful over the past 2 months.
