Anyone - shoulder injury from shot or vaccination?
« on: January 13, 2014, 10:24:57 AM »
I had an annual flu shot on December 18th and my arm is still quite sore in the area where I got the shot.  Almost 4 weeks later here I am with the same discomfort.  It was given very high up on the deltoid muscle and hurt REALLY bad going in.  :traurig001:  I'm frustrated as I think some nerve was irritated or that the injection went into the bursa or some ***** in the shoulder joint where it shouldn't have gone.  Or it's a vaccine reaction (to something in the shot).   I should never have let my doctor talk me into it.  I NEVER get flu shots.  >:(

I corresponded with my doctor who told me same thing happened to him with last year's flu shot and a nerve may have been irritated.  He told me to give it some more time.   

Has anyone else had lingering shoulder pain after a vaccination or shot of any kind in the deltoid area?  How did it resolve and what did you do?

Thanks for any feedback.   I appreciate you reading this.   :yes:

I have never had an arm injury from a vaccine, but have heard this can happen. Maybe someone with first hand experience can pipe in on this.

Thanks oregoncoastlady.   :yes:  I don't wish this on anyone but if anyone else has had an issue, it would be comforting to know.
