I got a flu shot Monday afternoon, in my left shoulder. By evening any movement of my right shoulder was very painful and I got very little sleep. Who knew a flu shot could do that?
If a man can smile when things go wrong,
He’s thought of something he can blame it on.
In reality, to blame arthritis in the right shoulder on vaccination in the left shoulder makes no sense. There is no cause and effect, just coincidence. Kind of like the anti-vaxxers who blame autism and a whole bunch of other things on vaccination, even though scientific research has never found a connection.
I’ve been troubled with arthritis in that shoulder for years. Most of the time it’s pretty minor, but I must have done something Monday to aggravate it. I’ve been using Voltaren, last night I slept on the recliner and tonight I have almost full movement without pain.
