This is the first year that I have taken the flu shot. The shot was not painful at all but that same evening I went to the gym to work out. While working out the tricep of the arm that I received the shot in began cramping as well as my leg on the same side of my body, Since then I have had intense pain around the shot sight and have to take Tylenol to be able to relax enough to sleep. Is this a direct side affect of the flu shot? How do I report this as a possible side affect?View Thread
