Whooping cough injection hurting shoulder

I had my whooping cough injection in right arm and my flu in the left.

I’m in a lot of pain, not from the injection site but my shoulder joint.

I can’t lift my arm over midway, behind me and sleeping it really painful.

I had it two weeks ago.

Is this normal?

Hi I had the same. It disappeared after a couple of weeks and when I had the flu jab I didn't have any pain at all. I'm not sure why it does causes shoulder pain- I have mild arthritis so thought it was that but if you're still in pain best go get checked x


I felt the same too. Felt like I had been punched hard in the arm but it went after a few days x


Yeah I would expect that but a few weeks?


Mine was only a few days x


Yep, whooping cough is meant too be worse than the flu jab.


Sounds like it could be unrelated to the injection to me. See your dr or an osteopath x


Mine hurt for a few days. Put some ice on it and if it still doesnt heal, go to the gp.
