Ok med-heads. I'm a techie so I know nothing about how the human body works other than how to please it. Mine and a woman's :chuckle:

I got my flu shot today and I know baiscally what it is. A weaker strand of the virus so my body will make the necessary antibodies to fight off the seasons most popular influenza viruses.

But why the hell does my arm and upper back feel like Mike Tyson hit me with a left hook? Damn!! :fire:

Any time you get shots in the arms or the buttocks, you want to stetch that body part right away, to help it from not getting tight and sore. Some people have them knot up in the arm pretty bad. Try to move it around and bend it, with motion this may help you out some.

Maybe they gave you something besides the flu shot? Maybe they gave you the bird flu! :evil:

the shot actually has the flu virus in it (in a weakend state) that your body starts to fight off. the sore you feel is actually your immune system trying to keep the virus from moving all over the body (it is kind of walling it off). Thats ok tho because you still get the immune effect with your immunoglobulins will "learn" this new virus and if you get exposed again, your immunoglobs will kill it quickly.

I refuse to get a flu shot. It is a way for the squirrels to inject humans with there gene splicing experiments. I for one say no thanks!
