Viral? It is unlikely to be related to the flu shot as this is not a live vaccine. It is possible that you have had several viral infections over the past months. How high has your fever been? If it is a low-grade fever (ex. Not higher than 100), then allergy is another possibility as the symptoms can be virtually identical. See your doctor for evaluation so proper treatment can be initiated. Read more...
