I have had some problems with the flu vaccine - similar to what you're describing. There is some controversy about the vaccine causing flares or an increase in symptoms for people with chronic fatigue and/or other immune system disregulation problems. I have a good friend who also has fibro, but not chronic fatigue, (a nurse) who refuses to get the shot because of her problems with the after effects. I agree that you may have been unknowingly headed into a flare and this is just coincidence, but it's also quite possible that you are sensitive like some fibros/CFSers (and others). Take care and hope it lightens up soon!
