Upper back pain
Apr 20, 2004
Hello all,
Has anyone out there ever taken a hep B vaccine shot that gave them very bad back pain? They give this vaccine in a series of three shots. the first time I got the shot, I was fine for the first 3 days, on the 4th day I got a lancinating pain in my upper left shoulder. It felt like a dagger digging into my muscle. I put up with this pain for about 3 1/2 weeks, saw my primary care doctor, he thought I might be allergic to the stabilizers or preservatives in the vaccine. He prescribed a muscle relaxer and anti- inflammatory. I took both and it seemed to help. I waited two months before getting my second injection. I just got the 2nd injection this past Friday, by Sunday night I got that pain back! I took a muscle relaxer and it didn't help. I'm icing my back and taking an anti-inflammatory, but my back is really hurting me. Does this sound like a nerve inflammation or a muscle problem? Has anyone out there ever had this problem from a vaccine? I'm in a lot of pain and could use any one's opinion on what's going on with my body. I dread going through this a third time and waiting another 3 1/2 weeks for this to disapate is daunting!!
Any advice is welcome!
