Huh. This just reminded me that I had bought a TENS unit for my back pain years ago, that I should really give a shot on my cramping shoulder/neck.

For one, there's no way that's even possible. You need at minimum 24 hours incubation period for influenza.
Secondly, although your body mounting an immune response to the inactivated virus might cause a bit of a reaction, that's not influenza.
These are all typical reactions to the flu shot:
Soreness, redness, and/or swelling from the shot
Headache
Fever
Nausea
Muscle aches
This all sounds pretty much how you're feeling. Have you tried some ibuprofen or acetaminophen? That might help. Also, get some extra sleep and stay hydrated and eat well. This will all assist the body in doing its THANG.
I got my vaccination a couple of days ago. No problems. Same for my son.

Are you at least feeling better with your health? I have to say, your current sh0e and dress purchases are A+.

This has happened multiple times to my husband. Maybe it's his industry: Software engineer.

Very Ew. No problem, I guess, with his pro-NRA, anti-LGBT, pro-life bullshit. His views are awful. https://www.advocate.com/commentary/2018/7/31/bre...

I know, but this character makes more sense with her quote: "“I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart..."

And that it was at this moment that I realized that I was going to have to switch my laptop background from that of "mushroom-themed."

Yeah, that was something I really wish that I didn't know.
