My first shot hurt more than my second and took close to a week to feel better. I bruise easily though, and I don’t think the guy did a very good job with it, so hopefully yours doesn’t last as long. My mom was told to get it in her dominant arm so it would move more because that will help.

Honestly what helped the most was light exercise and moving my arm around to get the blood flowing! Napping and staying immobile made it the most sore. I went to kickboxing after my first shot and paddleboarding after my second and it helped a lot

Monitor it for another few hours. If it doesn’t change, move closer to WiFi and try to reboot the chip. It will install the latest updates that has pain suppressors built in 😛

Will do thanks 🤣🤣

Try to keep moving it around a bit, and ice it if you need.

Congrats!!! Took Tylenol/ibuprofen. The arm was sore a few days but the worst of it only a day or so.

Take Tylenol not Advil/Aleve - your body needs an inflammatory response to build immunity. Docs told me this when I got mine

Thank you all, I took Tylenol so fingers crossed

Keep moving your arm, don't baby it or it'll be sore for a longer time. Put arnica cream or gel on the injection site a couple times a day. That really helped me.

Thank you both. I will go for my run tomorrow then because The Tylenol I took definitely did not help lol

Keep moving the hand. Put a bag of ice on the arm. Rest.

The first and second shot….I was drinking tequlia 8 hours later

Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
