    Flu and pneumonia shot side effects.

    I got both about six hours ago, and am having a "hotflash".

    I am literally sweating buckets.

    Anybody ever heard of such a thing?

    I had the same symptoms when I took both shots at once, which cleared up just a rapidly as it came on. Since then I will not take both shots at once. Did get my flu shot last week though. No apparent side effects, not even a sore spot on my shoulder.

    I called the pharmacy, they said the same thing, it was from taking both at the same time.

    I drenched my shirt, got shaky, and it passed in ten minutes.

    Big slice of pecan pie helped, I have not eaten today.

    Thanks!

    Low sucrose levels can cause your problems.

    I say I hadn't eaten, but I drink strong coffee with lots of milk and I bet I have had a quart of milk today.

    Never had a hot flash like that.

    Never want another one.

    I had mine a couple of weeks ago and had no side effects.
    The year before, I got my flu shot while I was eight months pregnant, and I got kind of nauseated a few hours later, but there's no telling if it was related to the flu shot.

    If you are concerned, call your doctor or go to the ER.

    As for the hot flash, when I'm very tired- like, when I haven't slept for over 24 hours- I seem to have trouble regulating my body temperature, and begin to have alternating hot flashes and chills. It's not fun.

    But, you are a woman, hot-flashes come with the territory.

    I'm a man, had one once under an electric blanket with my GF, otherwise, no experience with such.

    It passed.

    My son is here, and will be frying fresh fish very soon.

    I'm going to make it.

    You know coffee is a diuretic.

    I just turned 39. I'm not menopausal yet. Hot flashes don't "go with the territory" until women are much older- around fifty. At least, they're not supposed to.

    And?

    Coffee is what kicks me off and keeps me going.

    I'd just as soon die, as quit coffee.

    I'm retired, I got time to pee.
