A couple of weeks after a flu shot I began to have crawling, prickling sensations on one side of my face. At first they thought it was Bell's Palsy. Then the sensations were everywhere on both sides. One doctor thinks it is an allergic or auto-immune reaction to the flu shot. That was five years ago. I still have fasciculations, and sensations as well as vertigo and memory problems. No one can find a cause other than maybe the flu shot. Is it possible for a flu shot to cause a neurological disorder?
Four and a half years ago, I had a flu shot. Eight days later, I developed
tingling, fatigue, and a terrible feeling of being not well. It led to
fasciculations and a variety of other symptoms. I've never received a diagnosis
but I was put on Neurontin and Prozac in low doses. I'm better now. You
might want to check out the neuromuscular web forum through Massachussets
General Hospital. We discuss such symptoms, remedies that have helped some,
and are working on a survey to see if we can find similarities. Good luck.
