my mom got a pneumonia shot last friday and her arm is not only sore, she can't even lift it at all. what could possibly be the problem. i know you are sore for a couple of days but this really has me worried. he doctor's office is shying away from her calls.
you need to take her to the ER, that sounds like it could be a seriouse topical reaction or infection even. Most pnemonia is caused by a bacteria not viral so how these shots even work Im unsure but I plan to look it up momentarily because my own doctor recommended I had one after two bouts myself this last year...... BUT when I asked him how it works since its bacterial he couldnt tell me and recommended I look it up on google and get back with him if I want it done. Not exactly the professional answer Id expected.
