This happened to me sort of. I had a lot of pain after an injection for a trip to africa. but it ended up being my shoulder was eaten up with arthritis and the shot sent everything to the major inflamed department... i could hardly use my arm for anymotion above my head.. I was going for my knee to the ortho. and they took an xray of my shoulder . Well needles to say i now have no pain and both shoulders have been replaced.. Good luck to you.View Thread
