Post Flu & Pneumococcal jabs

Hey :wave:

Wondering if anyone could help me with a question!

I had the Flu & Pneumococcal jabs yesterday and all was fine, but this morning I woke up and I can't move the arm that had the pneumococcal jab without being in horrendous pain - would I be alright to assume that it's just swelling and will go down soon? Just the pain is getting a bit old now!!

Ta :)

    you may experience side effects after having the jab, such as a temperature and aching muscles for a couple of days afterwards. Your arm may feel sore at the site where you were injected. More severe reactions are rare.

    Thanks for that.

    Turns out I have a giant bruise just under my skin that's pushing down on the muscle and tendon, thus causing the problem.
