Many possiblities: For this issue I would recommend that you see the doctor who gave you the vaccine, and explain your symptoms. I suspect he would want to send you to a neurologist to have an EMG done to see if there is damage to the nerve. If the ailment turns out to be progressive, the Neurologist would have a baseline exam. Further studies would need to be done.
