Flu Shot over a week ago still sore!!!!!

I got a flu shot over a week ago and ever since my arm has been in extreme pain. It hurts to even lift it a little. I was told my arm may be sore, but it hasn't gotten any better and others I've talked to say they weren't sore at all. What is going on???

Sounds like an adverse reaction. You need to make a report to VAERs.

You can build your own natural immunity through proper diet, exercise, and eliminating stress and plenty of sleep. It really works and it is what is best for our bodies and you will find you won't need a flu shot. You won't get sick if you take care of yourself and eliminate processed foods.

Re: Flu Shot over a week ago still sore!!!!!

My flu shot was 10/26, 5+ months after rotator cuff surgery in that arm. Within 2 days, the entire shoulder capsule was inflamed, and the pain got so bad I requested a steroid injection in the shoulder and was given a prescription for Percocet. My surgeon sent me back to physical therapy, and, at first, I could barely move my arm, even with the aid of a pulley! I'm starting to get some movement back but the shoulder is still very tight and the muscles aren't functioning very well. Will I ever recover from this?????????
