Wow, I thought I was the only one! Mine started two weeks after a flu shot. Actually, the company that I received the flu shot from acknowledged MG as a side effect from their Standard Dose shots.
You should look into the Vaccine Compensation program. Since it was the flu shot that caused your MG you can get compensation for your medical costs.
