I too had a fairly violent reaction to this injection which was given on Saturday 6 November 2010 in the same upper arm and at the same time as my flu vaccination.
Symptoms came on about 5-6 hours after the injections and included aching in all joints (particularly the fingers) general feeling of nausea and retching (only bile came up) very dry feverishness switching from feeling hot to very cold about every half-hour and thumping headache.
This continued overnight - showers / sponging down did nothing to ease the feverishness - and I didn't get much sleep. Symptoms eased gradually over the next couple of days and were completely gone within a week.
My GP reassured me that this was my body's natural defences showing that they worked!
