Hi. I got a flu shot on October 22, 2011 and it is Novemeber 21, 2011 and my arm is still in pain. It hurts more when I move it. I cannot do any daily activities without causing more pain. I googled my symptoms to see if anyone else out there experienced this as was surprised to find out that so many other people went through this. I came across this forum and was amazed to find out that people had experience this in 2008! Maybe I should have googled this before the flu shot! I went to my doctor and she told me that the pharmacist who administered the shot probably hot a nerve and it will go away, worst case scenario 3 months. That is b.s. Im supposed to wait and see what happens? That answer was totally unacceptable. My soon-to-be former doctor told me if it still hurts to come back in a month. Not only am I pissed off about what the doctor said, but even more pissed that I got a flu shot from an inecperienced pharmacist!!!!! I have an appointment tomorrow to see a neurologist. I am also looking into taking legal action.
