I had a sniffly nose and sneezing that started on Friday but I just put it down to allergies, as the weekend progressed I started getting horrible body aches, blinding headaches, sore throat, nausea, extreme fatigue and now I have noticed my glands are swollen or something because I have 2 lumps on each side of my neck. Someone said it was because I ate junk over the weekend so my body is rejecting it or something but I don't know. Could it be the flu I did have the shot earlier this year or is it something else? If it is still bad tomorrow I will go to the dr but don't want to feel silly if it is just something simple

Can you still get the flu if you have had the flu shot

Yes you can - the shot doesn't cover every type of flu. You may also have a bad cold rather than a flu (especially since you are sneezing etc).

Eating junk does not cause swollen glands etc. yes it may well be a strain of flu you weren't vaxxed for or some other virus or infection. I would go to the dr. Hope you feel better.

Unfortunately yeah probably the flu. My dad can't have the flu shot cos every time he gets it he ends up with Pneumonia!!!! However that is an extreme case...

Thanks everyone, I feel even more crappy today and my voice is just about gone (kids and DH love that) so I think I will ring the Drs and get a appointment
