Reply To: Flu shot: Profit or politics?
I had an onset of symptoms 24 hours after getting the flu shot 2 years in a row. I only took it the second time because the military requires it. In 2011, the noticable symptoms last about 3 weeks. However, from the 2012 flu shot I have ongoing symptoms lasting over 6 months now. I do not have a diagnosis yet but they are debating between transverse myelitis and CIDP. I may be going to Walter -Reed soon for further evaluation. Symptoms include excessive pins and needles in both arms and legs, stiffness, weakness, loss of sensation and low back pain. My last EMG showed axonal motor sensory loss in both of my legs and mild demyelination in both wrists.
