I am 2 months post flu injection. I am experiencing a lot of the same symptoms. I believe my injection was given to high up and to far back. It was given by a RN. My symptoms: 1)constant extreme pain. 2) weakness in my arm to the point I can barely pull the covers over me or hold anything over 2 pounds in my arm. 3) shooting aching burning pain from the injection site down to my pinky finger with numbness and tingling as if my arm has falling asleep. This happens several times a day but is worst at night with the burning that I can not sleep. 4) limited range of motion. I can not rotate or raise my arm in a 90 degree angle. It's very painful and my shoulder is very stiff. I can not raise my arm over my head or reach back with it. 5) I have had neck pain as well. It's only on the left side of my neck where the injection was given. This includes my whole shoulder blade and lower neck. I can also feel a lump at the injection site. It's not visible, but if pressed on it feels like a mosquito bite under the skin. And yes it hurts to touch.View Thread
