Had flu shot Thurs. Evening. Since Friday, low grade fever, exhaustion, nauseous, mild cramps, slight headache. Is this a side effect?

Immune response: What you are describing as side effects of the flu shot, could be interpreted as your immune system successfully responding to the flu vaccine, so your body will be ready if and when it is exposed to the live flu virus. These symptoms usually go away in a day or so. Or you may be coming down with an unrelated virus that you were exposed to a week or so ago, which is not related to the shot. Read more

I have worsening pain in my lower right back, having done no physical labor to injure it. Could this be a kidney issue< I am urinating more frequently & with more urgency. Starting this evening I am running a low grade fever of 1-2 %.

I have worsening pain in my lower right back, having done no physical labor to injure it. Could this be a kidney issue< I am urinating more frequently & with more urgency. Starting this evening I am running a low grade fever of 1-2 %.

This: This is quite possibly a urinary tract infection. With the fever I would be worried about upper urinary tract infections (ie: pyelonephritis). I would seek medical attention asap to get treated with antibiotics if indicated. If left untreated this could assend into the kidneys and possibly a blood infection. Other possibilities include kidney stones. Symptoms such as abdomenal pain, nausea and vomiting can accompany serious urine infections. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids and see your doctor today.
