    Delayed pain after flu shot.
    Mstenn posted:
    Flu shou was about 3weeks ago. Pain in shoulder started 5days ago. It's hard to get dressed or undressed. I can't turn left in my car with my left arm. I thought it was likely the shot and feel it was confirmed when my co worker has the exact same symptoms, starting at the same time. We had our vaccines on the same day by the same injector.

    How long does this last??
    Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
    Determining how long this might last is really impossible. Even though you had the same the same person...and with the same injection technique, everybody is different when it comes to adverse responses and recovery times.
