Hi everyone,

Just wanted to give you a heads up on a strange reaction P had to the flu shot. A few hours after the shot P lost strength in her hands. She kept dropping things - after 2 broken bowls and dinner all over the floor, I checked her hands and discovered she had no strength in her fingers at all.

It came back abour 12-14 hours later.

We saw the GP and he thinks it's some strange reaction with the Enbrel and the flu shot.

Hopefully it won't happen with any of your children - but just in case...
