Check your side effect list, honey. I have a whole bunch of them, too.
Mine says, "side effects may include redness and swelling at the injections site, soreness, mild fever, and irritability."
That's what I was always given--AFTER the shot, on my way out of the office. When they remembered to give it to me.
It never mentioned the possibility of seizure reactions,encepalopathy, full-body rashes, arthritis/arthalgia, migraines, or autoimmune disorders like diabetes, fibromyalgia, thyroid disease, lupus, MS,Guillaine-Barre syndrome, or celiac disease.
Those were listed in the package insert. But I was never given the package insert. I was given the office form. which didn't mention any of the side effects my children had.
So much for informed consent.
Mine mention all those except celiac and give how many people have reported, i.e. 1 in 4 for swelling, etc. We always get them first too.
