I got my tetanus shot yesterday and in the middle of the night woke up in BAD pain. I can't even lift my arm whatsoever...it hurts SO bad. All the other vaccines I got were totally fine but this one is KILLING ME. Im a little nervous that it wont go away by Sunday cause I run a half marathon that morning. IS this normal and will it go away shortly?
My friend that is a nurse said its common to have pain from a tetanus but the fact that mine is so bad is odd. I guess its really common that the nurse administering it could have hit a nerve by accident and that could be a result of the pain... Any insights?
If anyone knows anything about this.... please give me advice. I just want it to go away by Sunday!
