I got my annual flu shot the other day and decided to get the pneumo-vax as well. I took a break from doing some remodeling at home, got the shots, and came back to finish the work. The arm that I got the pneumo shot in started aching, but I figured that was normal. By the next morning, the entire tricep was inflamed from the shoulder to the elbow. It felt like a massive bruise, with skin sensitive to touch and pain upon full extension or jarring of the arm.
I’ve never had this sort of reaction before and wonder if a)it’s normal or b)I somehow aggravated it by working. Two days later it’s subsiding somewhat, but is still painful.
