Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Wsince midnight. BP 166/72. Burning is mainly hands legs feet. No rash but some lightheadedness
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago

These are side effect of flu shot. This is likely to resolve by the morning.

None of your symptoms are serious or significant.

Your blood pressure is slightly high but should come back to normal.

If you develop rashes or breathing issue; you may consider going to emergency room.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

BP was 166/85. No rash at shot site
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago

The systolic BP of 166 is slightly high. But this can be due to anxiety and the burning.

None of your symptoms warrant an urgent evaluation.

It is privilege assisting you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
