I received a tetanus shot on tuesday. Last night I couldn't sleep because my entire arm and hand were throbbing with pain? What's going on?

In brief: Shot reaction
This is not an uncommon reaction to a vaccine.
Checking the blood for immunity to a specific vaccine is a good idea before getting another one. Once a reaction occurs, the next time could cause a worse reaction.
