So, you should get your shot right? However, if you have autoimmune thyroid disease and are hypothyroid, you might want to rethink how helpful that flu shot really is.

    I’m concerned because I have thyroid disease and had a flu shot just a week ago! But after the last three days I can’t sleep at night and my body just aches all over. I feel sick like and so tired with lightheaded and headaches! Could it be side effects from the shot??
