Health whine

I got my jabs for my Africa trip eleven days ago, and they warned me at the hospital that I might suffer a reaction from the yellow fever one within five to ten days. Sure enough, I was groggy all last week and totally knocked out for most of Tuesday. By yesterday, though, I thought I was over it.

However I came home yesterday with a severe pain in the left biceps. Not quite where the tetanus / polio jab went in, but within a few centimetres, and I seem to remember a similar reaction to tetanus jabs before. Saw the doctor this morning who diagnosed an inflammation of the muscle (which is really a symptom rather than a condition) and prescribed industrial-strength ibuprofen. Am rather fed up with all this.
