I received a shot the end of September and my arm is in PAIN!...
I've read the other comments, so what is the solution?
I've tried...hot packs, cold packs, Salonpas patches, emu cream, massages, accupucture...HELP!
What have ou tried that has helped? My arm is sore and its difficult to put on a bra, sleep on my left side, etc...
Any suggestions?

Thanks for any inputs....

You mentioned that you read the other posts, but I am curious why you are asking...these posts contained GREAT information with many various suggestions for stopping the pain after a flu shot. It depends so much on your situation, but here is an example from the many, many posts (too many to summarize for you, unfortunately):

https://www.empowher.com/community/ask/pain-arm-after-flu-shot?page=20: "The most positive comment about relief from flu shot pain I've read so far has been the person who received an ART (Active Release Therapy) treatment from a chiropractor trained in that system. You may wish to explore that option and read her comment above or ask her how she's doing now?
That approach seemed effective when directed toward correcting needle stick damage and rsulting scar tissue vs. a vacine toxin issue.
Best to you in your quest." From Greg
