2013 Flu Shot : Arm pain and cramping
pamela227 posted:
This is the first year that I have taken the flu shot.
The shot was not painful at all but that same evening I went to the gym to work out. While working out the tricep of the arm that I received the shot in began cramping as well as my leg on the same side of my body,
Since then I have had intense pain around the shot sight and have to take Tylenol to be able to relax enough to sleep.
Is this a direct side affect of the flu shot?
How do I report this as a possible side affect?
