Suggest remedy for sore arm due to allergy shot

I am a type2 diabetic.I have copd,left bundle branch block,irregular heartrate,and other issues.I get an allergy shot at every season change.This time I got my shot on Nov 3rd 2011.My arm is still sore bigtime.Also my stomach has been upset for a month and I have lost 12lbs.I like the weight loss but wonder about any underlying problem.I did call my doctors office about the sore arm and they said that because I am diabetic it would take longer for me to heal.And I totally understand that but it has been a month.I am 57yrs young and well past the child bearing days so I know that is not the problem.I had a hysterectomy in 1994.Also had gall bladder surgery in 2007. Should I be concerned or just let things run its course.Help

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to the allergy shot.
I agree with your doctor about the fact that I. diabetic patients the healing process is slower.
So ,I suggest to use anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the soreness.
I also suggest using cold compresses for local application.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
