underarm pain after H1N1 vaccine

Instead of the normal pain around the vaccine injection site, I have additional pain in my underarm area.
Has anyone else experienced this and how long did it take to go away?

I am also experiencing the same symptoms, three days after being innoculated. It has not gone away (throbbing type of pain that is always sore-no palpable lump)

Hi Celine, we had shots for h1n1 yesterday, and it doesnt take time at all. It was the matter of seconds. It was way quicker than other shots. So dont worry, you are among them who are vaccinated. Well do you feel pain arround the are where u got the shot? I am experience some pain and my husband does too.

I had a jab 3 days ago and woke last night in agony from throbbing pain in my armpit. Like you there are no palpable lumps and there is no redness either just deep throbbinghot pain. It feels almost like a boil but I can't help thinking it's too much of a coincidence not to be connected. I have also had pain around the site and feeling unwell and nauseaous.
I am going back to my doc this evening.
I would like to know if it's  related and how long it lasts. I am going on a long haul flight in 2 days.
