October 1, 2013 my husband and I went to Walgreens to get our flu shot. When the lady gave me the shot I commented that it felt like it went into my joint. It is now Oct. 14 and I still cannot lift my arm! This is extremely frustrating! I called Walgreens and told them about my arm. He said that it happens 1 in 100 shots and that I should go see my doctor for pain meds and perhaps a cortizone shot. Really!? This is not right... This could be a life changing exjperience! I'm nervous and scared that I will never regain full mobility without pain in my arm. What can we do as a group to prevent this? And possibly get help to pay for the medical treatments.
