My doctor called a couple of days ago to see how I was doing after being sick so much last month (which is why I let him talk me into the shot to begin with). I mentioned the arm pain to him, and he said that the needle either caused a hematoma which is now pressing against a nerve, or hit a nerve directly. Either way, there's not a whole lot that can be done . Possibly physical therapy (which I don't want to do) or steroids (no way), or he can just prescribe pain killers. It could last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. If I get desperate, I'll opt for the pain killers, but I'm trying to avoid them. But it's ridiculously painful.

Okay, I think I've reached my limit for whining for this week!

I hope it clears up fast!
