Why Does Gardasil Make Your Arm Sore
I recently got a HPV or gardasil shot in my left arm. It has now been two days and symptoms of a reaction have developed. Please help!
My daughter is 13. She received her 3rd gardasil shot about 2wks ago. She has a knot in her arm, diarrhea & cramps. ?
I got the Gardasil shot a month ago and my arm still has moderate pain with limited mobility. Should I be concerned and should I visit a doctor?
Very unusual: Injection site pain can occur with any shot, including Gardasil and other vaccines, but should clear up in a few days; unusual to last this long. What does "limited mobility" mean? Because it hurts to move the arm? Conceivably you have a bacterial infection in that area. See the doctor who gave the shot. (If it was first Gardasil dose and nothing serious is found, it's time for your second dose.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?
Infection?: If the lump is exactly at the site of the vaccine injection, maybe it is a delayed infection or other reaction to the shot. This sort of thing is rare but could happen. If the lump is anywhere else, probably it has nothing to do with the vaccine. See a doctor soon if the area continues to enlarge or becomes more tender; if any redness; or if you have fever. ...Read more

Sometimes: It happens sometimes, should get better and better by next week. Try to keep moving around but no heavy lifting, take over the counter pain med, gentle massage, contact the doctor if not improving next week. It doesn't mean will happen with other gardisil shots, so be sure to complete series. Sore arm is better than procedures and treatments for cervical cancer which the shot helps prevent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
