Hi.... You good kind people out there.....I have had my 3 Covid jabs (2 of one kind and 1 of viser, I was only too glad to be covered from this awful epidemic, unfortunately when I had my booster (1 of viser) the lovely elderly lady nurse injected me totally differently to the other 3 already administered Covid injections where they would stand on my left side to jab my left arm and stand on my right side to jab the right arm allowing me to watch the jab being administered, but in the case for the third injection the very kind and helpful elderly lady stood in front of me and leaned over to my left arm and administered the injection completely stopping me from being able to watch whilst being injected with Covid Booster jab, this was in Oct 2021
Today and right back to Jan 2022 I have excruciating pain where I cannot even wash under my right armpit with this left arm without feeling immense pain, but what is strange, the pain seems to lower within minutes after I stop washing to where there is just a constant ache when moving my arm in certain movements, just sitting with my blind wife and placing this left arm across her body to comfort her I would get this horrible dull ache making her think I don't want to hold her and me having to explain....I Read this somewhere below, Please read it because it seems this has happened to many people..............But!  I want to know ''has anyone else experienced this problem and when will it get better''....this is what I read below and it's not just the Covid injection this happens either

Typically, shoulder injections should enter the deltoid muscle. However, an improperly administered shot can graze bone or nerve. It may also puncture the bursa, which is the fluid-filled sac protecting the shoulder tendons.

    Hi @kennnn2 :) Welcome to the community! Thank you for joining, and for introducing yourself.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been experiencing some pain after having your vaccination. As you've said in your post, this isn't about the coronavirus vaccination itself, but rather how the vaccine has been administered. Thankfully, these issues are rare.

    Have you spoken to your doctor about the pain you've been experiencing?

    That sounds a lot like SIRVA :( I read a long thread on here with others who have it and there were some exercises mentioned and physios which might help. I hope you are pain free soon @kennnn2 <3
