Within 4 hours after receiving a flu vaccine my left arm became limp. I could not raise it without using my other hand. After the third day I was able to raise it . I finally gained some use of my arm, but it became painful to dress and perform daily routines. This has continued for 2 months. My doctor has never seen a reaction like that. An MRI showed inflammation and about a 6 mm rotator cuff tear. He doesn't think the shot caused the tear, but I believe that it lead to it because I had no symptoms before the vaccination. This problem was caused by either the vaccine or the location of the injection which was higher on my arm than usual. I think she must have hit a nerve or a tendon. I've had flu shots in the past, and I've never had this problem. Is there anyone who is familiar with this type of problem? I would appreciate any advice.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
