Strange reaction to jab

Hi guys

I just have taken my mthx injection about an hour ago and my neck and face have gone bright red. I am hot - I have not taken my temperature yet but I look like a beetroot! But I have a smile not the grumpy face. I have a bit of pain in my gut but nothing to write home about.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

My week was very stressful with the audit and facilitating a performance management meeting- would that have contributed to this reaction?

Cheers - I'd appreciate your thoughts

Thanks, I had a chat with a nurse and we kept an eye on it - I started to fade just before I went to bed. I slept well and woke up feeling better than the night before - just the normal day after mthx slow self today.

How did yours go?
