    Went to the nurse tonight for a travel appointment to discuss what I need to for my charity walk up Kilimanjaro in January.

    Anyway she went through loads of different things I need (Yellow Fever, Malaria, Diamox etc etc) and then suddenly said "I can quickly give you five now"

    Two minutes later I had an injection in both arms.

    Now my arms are totally dead and feel so heavy and I am overheating and feel like I have flu :-(

    She said my arms might ache tomorrow but 2 hours after and they hurt.

    I am sweating to the point of sitting under an air con unit!

    Sounds like you may have had an allergic reaction. You should call NHS Direct and ask if this is normal, you might need some adrenalin or something

    Bless her. She probably had just had a row with her husband and was looking for some sort of revenge against men. I hope she's okay :D

    I do feel like hot flushes, I called NHS Direct earlier as she never mentioned feeling hot but the doctor called me back and said it was normal and to just not do anything strenuous!! Therefore am sitting here on the computer!

    Ooooh - holiday injections are not nice!! I know you probably don't feel like it but when I have the injections I try to keep my arms moving - it hurts like billio but cuts down the overall ouch time and definately stops the stiffness - well, it does for me anyway
