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?

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?

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

Got the gardisil shot 2 days ago and my arm still hurts today...Is this normal?

Usually, yes.: Any vaccine can make your muscles sore in the area -- a sharp pointy object has been stuck into them, and fluid is put in a space where there hadn't been any. Massaging the area, using warm compresses, and doing easy arm exercises helps to work 'kinks' out. Gardasil protects against a virus that causes cancer, so the benefits outweigh any side effects. If area reddens or swells, see your doctor. ...Read more
