Hi Bette427 and thanks for bringing your concern to the EmpowHER community.

Quite a few people have reported having pain, numbness and tingling in their arm after getting a flu shot. For some this has been a short term problem while it has lasted far longer for others.

We have a long thread about this, with more than 600 comments, where you may find some answers from others who have had the same question and experience.

Please see:

Is it normal for my arm muscle in my shoulder to hurt 2 weeks after flu shot?


Hope that helps,
