I received the new shingles injection 9days ago. For 4 days I had the usual twinge then the next day it really hurt so where I couldn't use my arm. Then I got a bump the size of soft ball. All the time my arm was extremely painful. Yesterday a very dark bruise appeared. This is very painful. Thank you

I am 54 and very active. I get shingles every 4 or 5 years depending on my stress level (lost both parents 4 years ago and divorce and had a bad episode of shingles) Sometimes I get deep nerve pain in my back and left leg and just 3 or 4 pimples but the pain lingers to where I have trouble walking. I DON T WANT PAIN PILLS I am looking for something for the nerve pain or? I have not received the shingles vaccine . I do an hour of yoga every day and am flexible. What do you suggest?

I received the shingles vaccine 2 days ago and have a redden sensitive area approx 6inches x 3 inches at the injection site. It looks and feels like a very bad sun burn. Last night I had a very severe sore throat which is no longer present. Are these normal reactions from the immunization?

I received shingles vaccine two days ago, no initial reaction. The injection site suddenly, became swollen and painful after 48 hours. Pain is not low grade and achy, it burns and is increasing in intensity within the last few hours. Pain is keeping me awake and I am afraid to bump it or roll into that side. Are these reactions cause for concern?
