Eugene55 asks:

Can the H1N1 shot cause heart failure?

I took the shoot on a Friday Morning, Saturday I started having a hard time breathing. On the falling Tuesday I went to the Doctor. It was real hard to brearth and I my  heart rate was jump form 180 beat a minute to 80. It was up and down and all over the place. Yes I am over weight but I was not having a hard time breathing before the shot.

What the Expert Says:

The H1N1 vaccine takes about 10-14 days to work although some benefit comes sooner.  Your best bet is to ask your doctor what she thinks.  There is no connection to heart failure and the vaccine in the medical literature.
