Arm pain after a week

I had a Tdap immunization in my left shoulder last Monday. I know it can be normal to have some soreness after the injection, but it has been 5 days and my arm is still extremely sore at the injection site. I'm wondering if anyone has any idea what the typical length of time is for the soreness to abate.

I'm not sure if it relates or not, but on the same day I also received a flu shot in my right arm and a cortizone shot in my right wrist. I had bad nausea the next day which I'm not sure to attribute to the Tdap or the intense pain I experienced from the cortizone shot. I also had a Xolair shot on Thursday in my left arm. (I get this one every month.)

Re: Arm pain after a week

It definitely can take a week to go away. Tdap is particularly hard on the injected muscles, especially if your last tetanus booster was less than 2-5 years ago. If it's still actually bothersome on Monday, let your doctor know.
