Write-up: I woke up with my arm feeling very sore in the muscle where the shot was given. I took Ibuprofen later in the morning, which helped a little, but I could tell when it was wearing off that afternoon because I started to feel achy all over by about 4pm, so I took another dose of Ibuprofen. That helped me feel better, but I got tired sooner than usual. I settled into bed by 10pm and felt cold and shivery. I took more Ibuprofen and was able to sleep. The next morning I felt much better, like I do after I get over a fever. I did normal activities, but by the afternoon I felt exhausted like I''d done too much, so I took a nap. I felt okay by the next day.
