Ok it's now 2013, but I have some important info I would like to post here, and hope some of you that posted here back in 2010 will see it. I am in Norway and due to a forthcoming travel to Ghana I decided to get a booster with the yellow fever vaccine. I received the booster shot in April 5, 2013. The first time I took this vaccine was in November 2003. On April 8 2013, I suddenly got a very strong pain in my left shoulder and it radiated up my neck on the left side all the way up to the ear and also sometimes down the left albue all the way to the left hand. I've been doing extensive research on the net to find out how I can get well again, since my doctor only gave me a prescription on NSAID medicine (Ibuprofen). This is anti-immflammation medicine and it did not work at all so I stopped taking that after 5 days. What I have learned from this forum is that it's not only the yellow fever vaccine (which contain living, weakened yellow fever virus) that could create pain and problems when stretching the arm straight out and up above shoulder level, and problems pointing the arm up behind the back. On this forum many people reported the same problems that I have had, but from a regular flu vaccine. One thing these two vaccines have in common, is that they are both vaccines containing the viruses they're designed to give the people being vaccinated protection against. I received the shot in my right shoulder, but the pain and problems with moving my arm occurred only in my left shoulder/shoulder joint. Therefore I am inclined to state that it's not the adminstration or placement of the injection that caused the pain and problems with moving the shoulder in any desired direction. Rather I think that it's the virus that is injected and possible weakness in the the patient's immune system that caused the problem. After reading lots of suggestions on how to treat this on the internet, I decided to try one of them, which is to take extra magnesium in pillform bought from a local pharmacy. Yesterday I took the first pill with 300 mg magnesium, and only 2 hours after the first pill yesterday, the pain was gone! It still hurt a little in my left arm in the evening when going to sleep. But in the morning after a good night sleep, I could not feel any significant pain in the arm, when I was still lieing down, before getting up to start the new day. Today I took the second pill, and the pain is still much relieved, compared to before beginning to take extra magnesium. What magnesium does is to strenghthen a person's muscles on the cell level and help with muscles to relax. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. I would reccommend any who get this problem with their shoulder to take magnesium together with Vitamin D, preferably together with Vitamin D3. Of course I still have problems with mobility of my shoulder, but I feel much better after beginning taking magnesium. To get back the mobility of my arm, I think this will take some time to heal, maybe several months and possibly up to a year. I'll report back here later this year if I manage to get back mobility in the shoulder. I have today ordered a product called Immiflex that I hope will fix the mobility of my shoulder, since I believe it was a virus (from the vaccine) that was the cause of all this. It's sort of a short in the dark, but if it fixes my arm so I can move it freely, I'd report back later. About Immiflex: ImmiFlex contains Wellmune WGP (Beta 1,3/1,6 Gluco Polysaccharide), potent structural carbohydrates derived from the cell walls of Bakers yeast, as well as a high levels of Vitamin D, which both are well known to stimulate our immune system. Ok bye, and I hope this can help some people to recover! *John*
