welcome to HealthcareMagic
The thing you should do immediately is to visit a hospital or a ER where you will get immediate medical attention.Swelling;heat;and the tightness are signs of inflammation and you have had wrong place to take the shot .Please visit ER or hospital for treatment immediately.
