Question about jabs

MixBotMixBot Posts: 8,656 Automated Account
I had my school leavers booster this morning. After I had it, I felt a bit unwell, but got told by the nurse that this is normal. For some reason now, I'm unable to put my left arm straight or put it to my mouth. (to feed myself) Anyone know why? And should I be worried at all?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    What's stopping you?

    I remember getting sore from shots. Even something as simple as the flu shot made my arm so sore. My parents got some shots a few weeks ago for when they travle, they whined and complained like children :p Sore arms and such are quite common, I hear the warning all the time when getting them.

    So you're able to move it but it hurts when you do?

    What does the injection site look like?

    Basically, yes
    What does the injection site look like?

    Small white lump

    Does your arm or hand feel numb, or do you have a pins and needles sensation?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I have none of those things.

    Sounds like a sore muscle then. I'm sure it'll settle. If not, seek advice from your GP/practice nurse in the morning.

    Give it a couple days. Most shot pains dont' go away for about 2 days... like most muscle sorness.

    heh - mine were the same when we all went to get typhoid jabs back in the day. in fairness, it did feel like you'd been punched repeatedly in the arm, but i had an older brother and was used to being punched repeatedly in the arm.

    my dad didn't stop whinging for a week.

    I've got a sore arm tonight from a jab I had this morning. It is really aching. I've had this same injection (Typhoid) three times now and each time it has been really painful afterwards.

    Bit of an update:
    Still a bit sore this morning, but am in less pain now. Still a bit hard to dress myself though.

    Typhoid is the most painfu jab i've ever had :yes: My mum had a reaction to it and couldn't feel her arm for a couple of days! :shocking:
