Bad reaction to this year's flu jab

Has anyone else had an extreme reaction to the flu jab this year? About a day after I had it I became as weak as a dish rag: unable to move a muscle to the point where I couldn't even lift my chin off my chest when I sat up. I thought it was just me having a bad time, but I have since heard of two other people with MS who have described identical ...
