Thank you for your posts. I too have some kind of shoulder injury. However mine is NOT from the flu but from Prevnar (either meningitis or pneumonia), and it was a 4th semester nursing student, about to graduate, who injected me. When she wiped my shoulder I told her she was too high (I am a surgical tech and just got into nursing school myself) I told her to go lower, she said ok and dropped down maybe 2 mm. I instantly had pain in my shoulder joint. I have no previous injuries to my shoulder but by the end of the day I had lost almost all range of motion in my arm. The loss of ROM lasted for almost 3 days but never fully returned. I cant lift my arm in certain directions and the pain is through the roof at times, especially when scrubbing and gowning and gloving surgeons. Its been 9 days and nothing helps. Can anyone tell me if the symptoms they were experiencing went away?
I had my epidural steroid injection done a week ago. I did not start to experience any relief in my lumbar region until yesterday. The only issue I have now since the shot is kind of a heaviness in my chest and a cough. I know it is from the shot because I did not have this issue until I got the shot. I thought at first that it was a bad heart burn but after a couple of days realized it was attributed to the shot. It is a little better as time has gone by but it still lingers and bothers me. Otherwise, my leg pain is much better. I still have the back pain but I think it is also a little better.
