Is it common to experience back pain after a tetanus injection at 20 weeks of pregnancy?
If the pain persists, it is better to get it checked by her doctor.
Yes, injections are given mostly intramuscular, so, some pain can be there for few hours to even few days in the surrounding area. However, if the pain is spreading/worsening, subsequently, or you notice any visible swelling/redness developing, it is better not to delay any longer and get a prompt check-up by her doctor.
In the meantime, just apply some cold compression (a bag of frozen peas will do) over the area and observe how she stays.
Hope I have answered your query. Take care.
